With a £230,000 investment at the Nottingham University Park campus we were called in as interior design and fit-out specialists to completely refurbish the overall design and the laboratory space, including new glass partitioning, flooring and colour branding. The 200-square metre group design area and adjacent practical teaching laboratory, also 200 sq. m, were transformed from a dated dark space into a modern, fresh facility.

Interior Design

Luiza da Silva, interior designer at B&M Installations, said: “The large room previously felt very enclosed and dark, so we opened up the space by adding new glass partitioning to the entire length, making it feel a lot bigger. The large amount of glass, where there were once solid walls, creates an open feel to the space, and introduces lots of natural light. This also means people walking past can see into the stunning new lab.”

The space will be used to support the delivery of the University of Nottingham’s new Aerospace degree course and wider improved teaching activities across the Faculty’s six departments. More than 400 students and staff will benefit from the modern equipped group design space area and laboratory.

Interior refurbishment

Luiza continued: “The Faculty of Engineering wanted to create series of modern equipped spaces which would give a unique atmosphere and deliver a ‘wow factor’. Every design decision was made to ensure the room feels tall and spacious, so we opted for a light-coloured vinyl flooring and chose white, grey and blue for the colour palette. This also references the wider aerospace industry where these branding colours are common.”

This was the 40th refurbishment project that our team completed for the University of Nottingham in 2016. Other projects with the University of Nottingham include; the full fit-out refurbishment of the Coates Building, the interior design and refurbishment of its Computer Lab and also the interior fit-out transformation of the School of Midwifery.
