Client:Oxford Brookes University
Location:John Henry Brookes Building
After a rigorous selection process in the autumn of 2010, Broadstock was selected by Oxford Brookes University to join the project team to develop the furniture package and assist in space planning their prestigious new building.
The vision for the John Henry Brookes Building was to create a facility which would compare with the best that the higher education sector has to offer and which would inspire staff and students alike for many years to come.
A showroom space was developed at the Space to Think Lab which was updated throughout the course of the project. This allowed the project team to keep their internal clients informed, gain feedback from their sponsors and ensure that the overall vision for the building was achieved.
Architects, Design Engine, kept the selection process on track and, in addition to specifying a number of specially designed products to suit the exact needs of the scheme, chose furniture from several of our key supply partners including Orangebox, Boss Design, Howe, James Burleigh, Brunner, Hitch Mylius and Martina Furniture.
By early 2013 the final schedule had been approved and detailed layout drawings were signed off by each of the project sponsors. Following a further competitive tender, Broadstock was selected as the approved supplier and installation was carried out in December 2013 and January 2014 in accordance with a strict timetable created by move management specialists, Moveplan.
The John Henry Brookes Building is proving to be the success that the University anticipated. Its iconic design and inspiring interiors are already having a major impact on the quality of the learning experience.
