University renovation specialists

Now that student experience is taken into account when formulating league table scores, Universities are paying more attention to their facilities to get ahead of the competition.

Updated or refurbished facilities are a great feature for websites and brochures, to entice students with the enhanced learning experiences renovated facilities bring.

Your refurbishment should reflect the academic standard of your University, and Mewscraft can deliver efficient use of space and clever design. Universities have high numbers of visitors coming and going, and so our designs consider the flow and dynamics of crowds. They consider how to best fit in a large number of work-spaces without feeling crowded, and they consider the importance of breakout areas. That balance between work and relaxation is important – and our skill is balancing these needs through space.

We put emphasis on design which is on trend and appealing to a demographic of students – but at the same time professional and inspiring. Many of our designers graduated within the last 5 years, and so are in touch with what today’s students want from their Universities facilities – be it a lobby area, communal work-space or lecture hall.

What parts of the UK do you work in?

We have showrooms based in Monmouth which are well worth a visit, but travel all around the UK to work with a diverse client list. We’ve recently completed University refits as far away as Glasgow, and we’re happy to work with Universities from Exeter to Edinburgh.

Do you refurbish entire Universities ?

Not typically. We’re a smaller company more suited to specialised refurbishments within the University, or perhaps one department. We undertake projects such as refitting the reception or lobby area, lecture rooms or quiet areas. That said, we take care of a multitude of areas such as design and manufacture of bespoke furniture, redecoration, flooring, ceilings, lighting, electrics, plumbing and graphics.

What Universities have you worked with before?

We have previously worked with City University London, Hull and Plymouth. While refurbishing City University’s Fight for Sight Eye Clinic, we transformed their reception and dispensing areas, creating a vibrant state of the art dispensary, using the University’s colours.
