University of Southampton - B178 Boldrewood

Boldrewood Innovation Campus is home to the University’s centre for innovation, business, and education in maritime engineering and engineering sciences.

Just a short walk from Highfield Campus, the 4.3 hectare campus is the product of collaboration between the University and Lloyd’s Register, which places the University at the forefront of maritime research. This collaboration ensures that students and researchers have access to real life case studies while Lloyd’s Register engineers have access to cutting edge research.

As the incumbent furniture supplier to the University of Southampton we were invited to work with Wates, the appointed Main Contractor for Building 178 on Boldrewood Innovation Campus.

We worked closely with Grimshaw Architects on the furniture specification as well as with project managers BuroFour and Rekan construction consultancy for over a year on this project.

We were involved in space planning, product specification and finish selection for this project as well as providing samples and pilot schemes. Product supplied included ranges from Ocee Design, Spaceoasis, Orangebox and Naughtone.

"This was a great project to work on with Grimshaw Architects, Rekan & BuroFour. We look forward to working with them and the University of Southampton again."
