The University of Essex is a fast expanding University which is making considerable investments in new buildings & facilities at its Wivenhoe Park Campus in Colchester, Essex.

When The University appointed Showcase Interiors in August 2017 to furnish a new Reading Room within the Albert Sloman Library we played a vital role in agreeing final specifications of the furniture with the client and liaised with them and our installations team to achieve a smooth and efficient programme to complete the works.

Particular challenges on the project meant that Showcase had to manage delays when The University’s flooring supplier failed to deliver and fit carpets on time and we also had to co-ordinate the installation of acoustic panels which were fixed to walls and high ceilings.
