The College, Merthyr Tydfil - Gaming Suite

As an approved furniture supplier on the National Procurement Service (NPS) framework we have a long-standing relationship with The College, Merthyr Tydfil. We were approached by the client to design the first Further Education ‘esports’ Gaming Suite in Wales to accommodate 24 students. The new suite will be used to teach Level 3 Games Design and Development from September 2019.

This new facility has been supported by the Skills Priorities Programme funded by Welsh Government.

Our product development team worked to the college’s Computing Department gaming brief and designed a bespoke solution utilising our ‘Symphony’ benching with overhead shelving units and additional integral cable management to fulfil the requirement. We also advised the client how best to secure the IT to protect against theft or damage. We approached specialist seating manufacturers to source the correct specification Gaming chair for this unique project.

“It's been amazing working with Merthyr College in building their new gaming/esports suite! Thank you BOF for helping us make our vision a reality.”
