We’ve been delivering inspirational environments for almost 70 years. We understand how the University sector is changing and developing; with a focus on exceptional learning environments and stylish and functional accommodation.

As the only furniture manufacturer in the country on every University Consortium Framework; we’ve an extensive knowledge base and an enviable portfolio of completed projects. We also hold membership of the Crescent Purchasing Consortium (CPC, UK) and Advanced Procurement for Universities and Colleges (APUC, Scotland). 

Our Services
Our customers tell us that it’s our service (as well as our furniture designs) that sets us apart from the rest. As a manufacturer we have total control over the design and manufacture of the furniture and offer an attractive range of finishes and fabrics to choose from. Our in house space planning takes the customers brief and works in collaboration with our clients to create a layout  using the latest REVIT software so that our customers can see our vision for their Higher Education institution. Once agreed the products are manufactured at our factories and an installation plan is agreed. This means that our customers only need to discuss their requirements who one company who then provide the perfect solution.

Delivery and Installation
Once the products are ready for delivery; we’ll send them out on one of our new, specialist delivery vehicles. We’ll let you know when this will be, so you can be ready. And it doesn’t just stop at delivery – our fully trained installation teams will build and install your furniture, and even take away all of the packing once it’s complete.

Why choose us?
Our customers tell us that (as well as our furniture designs; of course) it’s our service that sets us apart from the rest. We have vast experience across projects of all sizes, from engineering centres of excellence to lecture theatres and breakout areas. We once fitted 67 bedrooms within the space of 2 weeks for the University of Edinburgh – if that’s not exceptional service; we don’t know what is!
We understand that developing relationships with our customers is key to being able to understand their business objectives, needs and challenges; and to becoming a trusted partner.

What Our Customers Say

“One of Godfrey Syrett’s biggest strengths is in the wide range of furniture options available – along with the added benefit of a bespoke design service.

The provision of a dedicated Account Manager who was supported by a specialist Design Manager also provided added value. The Godfrey Syrett team developed an in-depth understanding of the building and the end user’s needs, helping to ensure that all needs were met without losing sight of both the University and the Architect’s vision.

Overall, the project was a huge success, the end result is fantastic – and we are already engaging with Godfrey Syrett on other key projects.”
