Product: 127 bedrooms 

Service: Design, Manufacture & Delivery   

We recently collaborated with Sanctuary Students on their extensive student accommodation refurbishment programme with Glasgow University. This project involved the modernisation of 127 student bedrooms. Utilising our focus plus range, we designed the upgraded rooms you see here, providing students with well planned, stylish and furniture with great functionality, that is built to last. The new room layouts also made the most of the stunning views of the River Clyde and the SEC Centre, where COP26 was recently held. 

The existing rooms had many challenges: Wardrobes that were too shallow, beds that were only 3ft wide and surface mounted conduits, to name but a few. The residents now enjoy larger 4ft wide beds, with under bed storage and by turning the bed 180 degrees, fantastic new views out of the window. A CNC machined shaped headboard unit facilitated this and provided a perfect space for suitcases and anything else students want to keep out of sight!

The longevity and quality of our products will ensure these rooms will last a generation.

Quote from Claire Heraghty of Sanctuary Students "Always a very professional service.  The quality of furniture is of good standard and there are always a varied range of options to choose from.”
