Stourbridge College IT Suite, Birmingham

Project Overview

Rosehill FF&E were employed by Clegg Construction to design,supply and manufacture bespoke desks for a newly refurbished IT suite. Our in-house design team worked closely with the architects on this project to create unique computer stations for students at Stourbridge College. We chose to use a chipboard core with a high pressure laminate finish to both the top and underside, while the edges were made from 1.6mm solid oak. For strength and stability, we used a combination of biscuit filled, glued and bolted joining methods to help create parallel alignments, which created these distinctive obtuse angles. Rosehill also designed a concealed cable management system to ensure each computer station had access to power through the underside of the desks, keeping the area clear and tidy and not impinging on the aesthetics.
