Standardizing Excellence: Quality in Design for Education Hospitality

Ken Blanchard’s observation that “None of us is as smart as all of us,” holds true in this instance. Through collaboration with architectural firm Interior Systems Inc., mobile folding furniture manufacturer SICO® America Inc. and High Pressure Laminate (HPL) supplier Wilsonart, the Edu-Source Corporation facilitated the renovation of the cafeteria and kitchen at the Fields Store Elementary School in Waller, TX. Although more than 55 percent of the student body comes from disadvantaged backgrounds, the school enjoys a reputation for excellence, including receiving the National Blue Ribbon Schools Program award in 2014. The only thing missing was an interior matching the intention.

After The Edu-Source Corporation translated the school’s idea and Interior Systems, Inc. developed the design concept/finish palette, SICO® built the mobile folding tables to order. “Even though we have a standard construction for most of our tables, the wide range of Wilsonart’s HPL colors and surface designs lets our clients, in effect, customize their products,” says Chris Dickey, senior product development engineer for SICO®. “Add the capability to get custom graphics, and the options are endless.” What makes SICO® an industry leader in the segment however, is the company’s reputation for quality, safety and service. “We use Wilsonart® HPL in most of our products for many reasons. It is UL GREENGUARD Gold Certified, which is important for materials going into schools. Plus, the surface is durable and easy-to-clean, even in long-term usage – and we warrant our products for 15 years against manufacturer’s defects and for lifetime on welds,” says Dickey.
