A New Modern Look for Kirklees College

Kirklees College

Developing a stimulating and inspirational environment for students.

The Background

Kirklees College is a further education College with two main sites in Huddersfield and Dewsbury. When relocating their Huddersfield Centre to the new state-of-the-art Waterfront campus; the College wanted to develop a stimulating and inspirational environment, where students could learn in bright and modern surroundings.


The Process

Godfrey Syrett was the chosen supplier selected to undertake the project after a tender process utilising the CPC’s Office Furniture framework. The supplier's Design and Space Planning teams worked closely with the College throughout the 6-week project and they provided concepts and layouts for each area of the build, which included: teaching areas, tutorial spaces, breakout areas and meeting rooms over 8 floors. As part of their end-to-end service, Godfrey Syrett managed the project working closely with the architect and Estates Team.

The Outcome

Godfrey Syrett has almost 70 years’ experience in supplying and fitting furniture solutions, the team at Kirklees College could relax in the knowledge that the job was in expert hands.

Daniel Bedford, Acting Head of Facilities at Kirklees College, said: “We had an excellent experience with Godfrey Syrett. From the start of the project, they worked with us to understand our objectives and requirements for each area of the build. Their Design and Planning teams were knowledgeable and experienced in this kind of project and able to help us identify the best solutions for our needs, and the best layouts for our space. The vast product portfolio on offer meant that we were able to source all of our loose furniture through one sole supplier, leaving us more time to focus on other parts of the project. We would have no hesitation in recommending Godfrey Syrett to other members.
