CDC have been employed as fit out consultants for the new Post-Graduate and CPD Centre at the
University of Bedfordshire. The University has high aspirations for the new building’s fit-out in particular
the quality and flexibility of the facility. This role has required consultation with the University’s senior
management and stakeholders to consider the interior design of the building in relation to the procurement of new furniture and fixtures.
We space-planned the new building, including option layouts for teaching and learning spaces, and closely examined furniture layouts to optimise sight-lines to AV equipment, such as wall-mounted screens. In tandem with this, we proposed integration of power and data into furniture to aid ease of connection in key areas.
We have proposed furniture types and managed the process of internal University consultation, including physical testing, and proposed a palette of colours, fabrics and materials to enhance the overall building aesthetic.
