    Re: Computer Benching

    Cannot recommend anybody, but have you considered fitting it yourself. We have fitted a number of rooms out with benching. All we use is standard kitchen work surface mounted on legs with a back kickboard. We then get our school sparky to install power and data points underneath.

    Very basic, but it does the job and looks professional, plus its a lot cheaper than getting someone in to do it.

    We used the local building company that do refurbishment jobs in the school, they installed made to measure kitchen worktops, then organised the electrics and network cabling with their 'tame' electrician.

    Worth asking your school office who the school uses for refurhbishment etc?

    Re: Computer Benching

    we got ripped off 2 years ago by a local firm and parent of a child at the school! I didn't wanna go with his rediculous quote and offered to help the caretaker do it but the acting head at the time just wanted it done that week. The materials must have cost like 500 quid and it cost us near 4k

    Since then I have installed them with the caretaker and to be honest, we did a better job!

    Re: Computer Benching

    £8000 is about 50 computers (including tft's).

    Thats what my Line manager is always saying, anything that we buy is translated to numbers of machines, so when someone wants a laptop / tablet we then tell them thats 3 or so computers that you are taking away from the students.

    We dont buy laptops ever the laptops for teachers scheme was good enough.

    I get desking from someone such as Remploy or Godfrey Styrett office furniture, or use good quality worktop on nice chrome legs, much easier and better value for money.
