Cardiff University was looking to refurbish and update its Talybont Social Space. They asked us to manage the fit-out process as well as supply and install new furniture.
Mainly used by students, the space needed to offer them a variety of functions, from socialising and collaborating to eating, alongside areas that offered privacy.
Working with Connection, we sourced a selection of furniture solutions that could adapt to the different student requirements.
Since the open-plan space had fixed pillars positioned around the centre, the furniture also had to be adaptable and flexible enough to fit the available space.
It was also necessary for the university to provide students with plug sockets and USB charging outlets for their laptops, tablets and mobile phones.
OE Electrics provided electrical units integrated directly into the furniture so that they were easy for students to access while they worked.
