FBS Manufactured and installed furniture for 88 rooms, including:

  • IT Suites
  • Science Laboratories
  • Learning Resource Centre

We worked closely with the architects and end users to provide furniture that was both functional and aesthetic. Trespa Toplab Base was the primary worktop surface used in specialised classrooms such as Art, Textiles and Science. Whilst laminated worktops provided a fresh finish to the ICT, Graphics and technology write up areas.

The science labs included satin anodised gas & water taps throughout and our service bollards combined with loose tables allow for a versatile and adjustable layout.


We also designed, manufactured and installed a bespoke reception desk, all post-formed laminated construction with a linoleum desk, incorporating an access hatch, raised writing shelf and DDA access.
