Over a period of 8 months, designs and room layouts were refined until the final schedule of furniture was decided upon. All areas across the building from classrooms, social spaces, cafeterias, open study areas, corridors and even an outdoor roof space required furniture.
All of it needed to meet the modern design of the new building but also be robust enough to cope with the demanding environment of a busy 6th form.
MBS called upon the support of 19 manufacturers to fulfil the requirements of the school, most were ‘off the shelf’ products but there were a number of bespoke solutions, including the lockers to all of the corridors.
All items were delivered and installed over a 2 week period in the summer of 2015 at a price 15% lower than the original budget.
The outcome was a fantastic, colourful, learning environment which both Richard, the staff and most importantly the pupils were pleased with.
