Case Studies

UWE Bristol Faculty of Business & Law

The Project
The £55 million state-of-the-art Bristol Business School new build, at the University of the West of England (UWE), brings together students and staff of both Bristol Business School (BBS) and Bristol Law School (BLS). Opened in April 2017, the building offers a new way forward in the approach to Business and Law Education; with collaboration between staff, students and local businesses at its core. Key professional organisations from the local area will have a base in the new building; enabling barristers, accountants, small business owners and start-ups to mix with staff and students.

Our Solution

We worked closely with the project coordinators at UWE Bristol, and their chosen architect Stride Treglown, to identify the correct furniture solutions for this prestigious project. Flexibility was a key consideration for the new building: learning spaces are enhanced with technology and integrated electrical points. There are various breakout spaces across the seven floors, creating informal spaces where students and staff can meet to relax or work together, with semi-private booths creating space for more focused group work. In the main atrium, a selection of benches and long tables provides an informal cafe space.

Customer Feedback 
“Following a rigorous tender using the SUPC furniture framework Godfrey Syrett were selected as preferred supplier to develop the architect’s vision. From the off they were a pleasure to work with assisting with design development, colour scheme and fabric choices. They managed the installation programme very professionally taking the inevitable project challenges in their stride. We are delighted with the outcome.”
