Junckers at MOD's new PFI College
Welbeck - The new Defence Sixth Form College at Loughborough - is the UK's first college to operate entirely through a PFI. It is an impressive purpose-built facility for young men and women seeking technical careers in the Armed Forces and MOD Civil Service. Junckers floors feature extensively throughout the new Welbeck campus, in both high-traffic communal areas and specialist sports facilities. In the canteen, servery, assembly hall and student bar, hardwearing 22mm Beech Sylvaket was installed with clips over 5mm foam underlay. On the sporting side, the four squash courts use Junckers unsealed SylvaSquash Beech and the large sports hall floor was specified with Junckers SylvaSport Premium. Both the squash courts and the sports hall are laid with battens and cradles, giving excellent performance and safety. Welbeck College is a £250 million PFI project, designed/built and financed by the Minerva Consortium on behalf of the MOD.
