Elm was involved as the loose furniture consultant for the complete furniture project for the new Haberdashers school. Working closely with the school and project architect Elm produced a full set of space plans showing the loose furniture layout.
Collaborating with the school to agree a suitable specification and design for the furniture, Elm provided samples, images, renders and a specification brochure for the agreed products. Elm implemented all the invaluable previously gained experience from working on Building schools for the future projects with both Skanska and BAM, along with the years working with multiple educational establishments such as LSBU, GSM, Belfair’s Academy into creating the proposed environment for Haberdashers.
As part of the first stage of the project Elm was asked to tender for the temporary school which was set up to take the year seven intake in September of 2019. Working on our experience gained in the consultancy stage of this project Elm was able to provide a tender response that clearly satisfied the school in terms of the specification, quality and cost. Elms response was based on the VS product range from Germany.
