Mi-space helps to improve Swansea school facilities
Students and staff at a Swansea primary school now have access to new upgraded changing facilities after staff from Mi-space used their skills to give the facility a much-needed facelift.
The team from Mi-space, part of the Midas Group, decided to pitch in and help out with the work at Clase Primary School after hearing about the project while carrying out Welsh Housing Quality Standard (WHQS) works in the area with Swansea Council.
It’s part of a wider commitment by Midas Group to industry-leading customer service and to working closely with the communities in the areas in which the company is working.
The changing facility is used by pupils with special educational needs and was completely refurbished with a new toilet and full-sized sink, complete with wall unit and storage space. A washing machine was repositioned and plumbed in to create more space and new lighting and an electric wall heater were installed. The finishing touches were new flooring and a complete redecoration of the area,
Janet Carrington, Senior Tenant Liaison Officer at Mi-space, said: “We were delighted to help with the modernisation of the facility and we hope children and staff at the school will benefit from the improvements we’ve been able to make.
“It is really important that we use our skills in the communities we work in to try and improve the lives of the people around us. The children seem to really love the school and you can tell that the staff are appreciated – which made us want to do the work all the more.”
The new facility was opened in style with children and teachers from Clase Primary School, representatives from Mi-space and a special visit by construction industry mascot Honor Goodsite.
Sharon Hope, Headteacher at Clase Primary School, said: “We are very grateful to the Mi-space team for the work they have completed in our changing facility for pupils with special educational needs. This newly-refurbished facility will ensure that we can maintain the dignity of some of the most vulnerable pupils in our school and enable staff to work in a fresh, clean and bright environment. We would like to thank Janet, Gareth and the team from Mi-space for making this possible in our school.”
