Through the Priority Schools Building Programme, St Michael’s Catholic Academy in Billingham has recently undergone a multi-million pound refurbishment. As part of the Carmel Education Trust, St Michael’s Academy is a centre for excellence, helping students to achieve their full potential.
Following site visits by our Sales Manager, Amanda Shepherd, and Project Manager, George Godfrey; we were delighted to be awarded the contract for all 5 lots: standard classrooms, specialist classrooms, offices and meeting rooms, dining halls, and other specialist areas.
Loose furniture was supplied across all three floors of the Academy. Areas included classrooms, SEN areas, Design & Technology, staff rooms, office and pastoral areas. The school library was installed with Flare soft seating to create breakout spaces for individual reading, as well as groups of Geo stools for group work. We also installed computer banks for student working.
The dining hall was equipped with a mixture of block tables and benching - ideal for group dining spaces - and Genoa tables with Xpresso stools.
“Godfrey Syrett provided a fantastic product and service in helping to fit out the new build at St Michael’s. From comprehensive advice and support at the ordering stage, to pulling out all the stops in a tight fit out window, they really went the extra mile. The pupils, teachers and wider community at St Michael’s are delighted with the new build and the furniture that’s helping make it such an outstanding learning environment.”
