A Sterling job for the UK’s largest primary school

Marshall-Tufflex’s Sterling Profile 1 dado system has been used extensively in the expansion of Gascoigne Primary School, Barking, Essex, the largest primary school in the UK.

Victorian era Gascoigne Primary has expanded considerably over the years. The most recent development is an £11m three-storey facility for 1,500 pupils with a rooftop playground overlooking the Thames Barrier and Barking Abbey.

Features include a computer lab, interactive white boards and ‘nurture rooms’ for children with emotional and social needs. To power this large and complex building, cable management has been delivered by Marshall-Tufflex’s Sterling Profile system in white with a charcoal main compartment cover – a versatile, cost-effective, and high quality trunking, proven to meet the demands of school environments.

Sterling Profile was specified following the electrical contractor’s visit to an open day at Edmundson Electrical in Crayford, where they were impressed by the quality and costeffectiveness of the Marshall-Tufflex system.

The contractor said: “One of the key factors in our decision was Sterling’s versatility – it can be used at a 90° bend, allowing installers to easily fit it in the new school without too much doctoring. Supply chain was also very important – we used hundreds of metres at Gascoigne, with the three compartment trunking in every single room apart from the kitchen and main hall.

“Being the largest school in the UK this is a significant project and Sterling has more than stood up to the challenge.”
