To compliment the aesthetics of the new building, furniture to administration areas, as well as classrooms, engineering and workshop areas required careful selection to ensure provision of a modern, functional and flexible solution.
Products were designed to support and encourage the learning experience.Over a two week period Mission Workplace supplied and installed furniture desking solutions to a number of admin and classroom areas.
Heavy duty workbenches were installed to match desking in some areas. Tamper proof student chairs, task seating and work stools were also provided.
