Bringing the comfort of home to the workplace

It officially opened on 4th December 2017, with more than 1,500 students expected to use the Business School every year and on offer will be degree level courses, professional development courses and business training.

The brand new building includes an impressive atrium, in which we helped Coleg Cambria create a welcoming, relaxed space including social seating, coffee tables and statement lounge sofas and benches.  Highback wing armchairs provide an element of privacy for conversations and time-out in social spaces, while sleek upholstered dining chairs and tables reflect the vogue to bring home interiors into the workspace.

“We are delighted with the high standard of furniture solutions provided by Penketh Group. We wanted to give our interiors a hotel look and feel and the furniture has really complimented the building. ”

The detail

Our work also included included reconfigurable learning furniture for 11 lecture rooms and 5 meeting rooms which, as well as being easy to store and move around, is flexible enough so a lecture style configuration can be transformed into an active break-out session space in minutes.

“Creating interesting and flexible spaces that encourage interaction and active learning is important to us and the response to the new furniture from staff and students has been great. With its abundance of natural light, digital facilities and interactive spaces, we believe that this building represents the future of learning.”
