Laidlaw hat-trick of Hastings health and education projects


Laidlaw Solutions has supplied 450 Orbis timber laminated and painted doorsets with factory-fitted Orbis Commercial ironmongery to Sussex South Coast College, a £65M element of the £71m Hastings Station Plaza mixed residential, educational, office and retail development. The variety of door colours, coded for each of the 6 floors, is immediately evident when entering the atrium which links the 4 BREEAM 'Excellent' 6-storey buildings.

The college houses IT suites, a gym, performing arts and dance studios, an art gallery, audio-visual / media facilities, coffee shop, hair salon and restaurant. 190 internal doors, glass internal timber screens and external timber doors were supplied to the development’s Primary Care Centre as well as 170 primed doorsets to the linked Sussex South Coast College Ore Valley campus.

Major Projects Manager David Manley concluded, “Laidlaw’s involvement in these key education projects provides further proof of our experience in handling diverse and complex doorset scheduling. Fitting out time is always tight so the supply of integrated doorsets provides the perfect answer for both the main contractor and the installer.”
