 Case Study For CATS College Cambridge

Dave Robinson from Cambridge Education Group came into Hunts in 2013 to discuss a new build project with Russell Emmett – Over the next two years Hunts developed a concept into a full scheme working with CEGs appointed architects and using mostly Steelcase Education furniture and Active Learning insights. Hunts provided all the areas in the new campus including Reception, Staff Rooms, Faculty Offices, Canteens, Breakout, Auditorium, Common Room, IT Suite, 37 Classrooms, Meeting Rooms, Library, Meeting Pods, Carpets and Acoustic Wall Coverings.

The project was successfully delivered and installed on time and under budget.

 Client Testimonial

At CATS College Cambridge, we wanted high quality furniture to complement our brand new campus.  More than that, we wanted the furniture to make a statement about our educational aims and ambitions, and we needed a supplier who could work alongside the design team to make sure that we had furniture ready more or less as the building went up.  Hunts Office were able to source and deliver innovative and exciting furniture that works with our approach to learning.  They were able to fit around our schedules, attend our planning meetings and weren’t afraid to tell us when they thought we’d got something wrong.  The end result was great: we have a brand new 21st century learning environment with great looking furniture that makes a powerful statement to our students and clients.  Hunts Office continue to be a partner of ours, and I would recommend them for their service and their approach.  Life’s too short to work with people you don’t want to work with!

Working with Russell Emmett and his team at Hunts Office Furniture to design, build and install all the office, classroom, recreational and residential furniture for our new college in Cambridge has been a pleasure. What I have appreciated most about working with Russell and his team is their ability to cut through the predictable politics of a project, keep everyone happy, and delivering the expected results and then some.  Their understanding of what we needed, ensuring that it flowed and fitting it into the limited spaces we had was admirable. But more importantly the flexibility in their ability to handle my requests to change and manufacture additional items unplanned, as well as their ability to delay the delivery at my request.

This is the first time I have used Hunts Office Furniture and I have been very impressed by the personalised service, quality of furniture and final product delivery.  Due to the success of the Elizabeth House project they have undertaken additional works at our college in Canterbury.

 The way that they have handled and delivered these projects has made them preferred supplier for our group of colleges and schools.

 I would not hesitate in recommending Hunts Furniture as a supplier and installer of quality furniture.
