Context

Alliance Manchester Business School (Alliance MBS) is the business school of the University of Manchester and dates back to 1918. As part of the University’s £1billion Campus Masterplan, the School has undergone a refurbishment that brings all staff and students together under one roof to create some of the most modern campus facilities in the world.

Products supplied

Ferco worked closely with the Business School Estates team to install seating in five different teaching spaces.

Four different products were chosen for their differing aesthetics and functionality:

  • Collaborative Wave™
  • FT10
  • ARC One Plus
  • ARC One with Wrimatic™ tablet

Collaborative Wave™ seating

Two rooms now contain the first installation of the unique Collaborative Wave™ seating system.

The Collaborative Wave™ is designed specifically to complement evolving teaching methodologies. Featuring a pod of four or five contoured seats set around a unique curved desk, the Wave allows learners to seamlessly participate in tutor-to-student and student-to-student collaborative learning experiences through its innovative construction.

FT10 seating

A third tiered lecture theatre installed the market-leading FT10. The 195 were paired with a fixed oak effect writing bench and added modesty panels to create an impressive teaching space.

The FT10 is a luxurious executive style seat designed with superior ergonomic and postural support.

ARC One Plus seating

The ARC One Plus seat was installed in the fourth large lecture theatre. The tiered room required the seats to be paired with straight rows of oak effect desking. The ARC One is a luxury upholstered seat with a high backrest and superior padding.

ARC One seating with Wrimatic™ tablets

The fifth seminar room installed the versatile ARC one with an integrated A3 Wrimatic™ tablet. Renowned for its comfort, function and versatility the ARC One lecture theatre seat is ergonomically shaped with a contoured back and focuses particular attention on lumbar support and encouraging correct posture for students sitting for an extended period.
