Client: UPP, University Partnerships Programmes

Location: University of Hull, Hull

Product: 1,462 bedrooms and 220 Contract Heavy Duty Kitchens over 3 phases

Service: Design, Manufacture and Install


UPP requested 1,462 bedrooms, of which there were 40 different designs, and 220 large kitchens. Contract Heavy Duty was selected for its renowned strength and durability in a high usage shared environment.


“This is our 4th and largest newbuild scheme for UPP since completing our first scheme with them, Byron House at NTU in 2013.  UPP are starting to see far fewer day to day maintenance issues where they have installed Ellis bedrooms and kitchens and won’t need to refurbish our furniture for many years. Building on our partnership with UPP the room design has developed so the sockets and data for the desk are integrated into a matching piece of furniture rather than a plastic compartmental trunking giving a sophisticated feel to the room. High pressure laminate to the horizontal surfaces rather than melamine and toughened glass noticeboards means high traffic areas will continue to look ‘brand new’.  All the furniture was designed to fit into both ‘AS & OPP’ room types, was delivered factory assembled with the units even rebated to accommodate the skirting boards, ensuring a smooth installation on site overseen by our dedicated full time on site installation supervisor and our team of fitters.”
