Case Studies

Edinburgh Napier University, Jack Kilby Centre

The Project
In 2015, Napier University decided to refurbish the Jack Kilby Centre, a 500-seat technology resource centre at Merchiston campus. Having initially opened in 2001, the University wanted to revitalise the space, injecting colour to lift the surroundings and create a more engaging area for students. Additionally, they identified a need for more social spaces within the centre; which would facilitate collaborative working for groups, alongside the individual working areas they already offered. Godfrey Syrett were delighted to offer furniture solutions for the refurbishment.
Our Solution
Having taken the client’s brief and spent time with them to understand their requirements; Godfrey Syrett presented a variety of collaborative working solutions to the University. Integrated computer tables created collaborative spaces which could be instantly converted into technology areas. A combination of booths created a variety of breakout and group working areas; ranging from open options like the Fifteen booth, to more private options like Spark, which allows for greater concentration. Electric sockets integrated into all collaborative working areas meant that students could remain connected throughout.

Customer Feedback
“Providing our students with both group work and personal study space facilities was a key objective and we also wanted to lift the area with an injection of colour.
The solutions put forward by Godfrey Syrett fitted those needs perfectly. The booths provide flexibility giving our students the options of personal study space and the ability to work in groups.
The service we received was professional throughout; and the team were always on hand to respond to any queries. I wouldn’t hesitate in recommending Godfrey Syrett to other universities.”
