Universities and Education
Flexiform are delighted to announce that we have been successful in securing a contract in the first lot in the new NEUPC National Furniture Framework. The contract is now live for any required call offs.
Lot 1 covers office, classroom, breakout, reception, meeting, conference, café and bistro furniture – essentially the core furniture requirements for all university and higher education establishments
The award has been made to cover 2 separate regions for the North and South of the UK to reflect the national structure agreed by the tender working party. This will cover the previous NEUPC members as well as those of the SUPC and LUPC. As Flexiform have been successful in both the Northern and Southern regions, we have a UK wide capability in the sector.
As well as a huge variety of furniture options, Flexiform offer a full design and planning service under the contract which is completely free for members. We can also produce visualisations to assist in the selection of final finishes and products as well as helping to gain buy in from stakeholders and users alike.
At Flexiform we understand spaces and the requirements of the education sector. Our interior designers and space planners have a wealth of experience creating dynamic and multi-purpose spaces that look fantastic and are practical, hard wearing and adaptable.
Workspaces & Classrooms
We have a range of comprehensive desking and flip-top tables suitable for IT workspaces, traditional classrooms and flexible classrooms which need to be adaptable throughout seminars. We have education desking ranges available with comprehensive cable management systems suitable for even the most demanding of IT set ups.
Whether it’s a statement piece of furniture to finish the atrium, or a snug section for students or staff to take a break, chat or have an informal meeting, we can help create an interesting and usable space. We can supply all the big names in soft seating including Pledge, Orangebox, Boss Design, Arper, Ocee Design, Hitch Mylius and more!
From large scale canteens to small cafe/ breakout areas, at Flexiform we can work with facility managers to design inspiring and relaxing spaces that are also hard wearing! We have our own range of durable dining benches alongside meeting seating and modular soft seating.
With 40 years of experience, our vast range of storage solutions are suitable for libraries, staff offices, student lockers and more! We have versatile library shelving, anti-bacterial ventilated gym lockers, charging lockers for students, staff items or electrical items, plan chests for art students, and a whole range of office storage.
IT Desks & Collaboration Furniture
Our in-house designers can help create collaborative workplaces for students, from simple tables, storage with oversailing worktop, mobile furniture (flip-top tables, castored seating) all with central power and data for charging equipment. We can also create bespoke IT desk for learning centres as seen in Kelvin Hall.
Acoustic & Quiet Working
Within education sectors, we know it’s important to have quiet zones for independent working to aid concentration. Using items such as architectural acoustic wall and ceiling panels, single fabric booths and pods, we can work within the building to create suitable solo working areas.
We would love to let you see what we are capable of and how we can help you transform your establishment. Please contact us to begin the process of engaging with the framework.
