Our largest project to date. In March 2015 we were awarded the contract for provision of furniture and soft seating for the University of Swansea Bay Campus. The project involved extensive input from our Project Team and involved managing the supply & delivery of over 29,000 furniture items across 10 buildings at this prestigious, ground-breaking campus.
Bay Campus is an extension of the existing Singleton Park just 5 miles down the coast, expanding the University to become a world-class facility situated directly on the beach. With over 5000 students and 1000 staff at the Bay Campus alone, the needs of both students and staff were a big consideration throughout the project.
A large variety of furniture for classrooms, atriums, laboratories, libraries, staff offices and dining halls was supplied across the 10 buildings.
When working on the library it was clear that we needed to provide the students with as many different way of working as possible. From open collaboration spaces, to meeting pods, to casual softer seating, our aim was to facilitate the students and provide them with the opportunity to work in whichever way works for them.
