Cardiff University approached CPS Manufacturing Co regarding installing lecture theatre seating. In total 1382 seats were installed into six buildings across three campuses in Cardiff. CPS Manufacturing Co worked with main contractor Knox and Wells, as well as architects Boyes Rees Architects, on this project.
Vario C9 lecture theatre seats
A total of 1320 Vario C9 seats were installed into 10 lecture theatres at the university. Each room had multiple colours, seat widths and back heights. All desks featured USB power and data modules, with cable channels routed into the underside of the desks and co-ordinated with the frame positions to avoid induction loops in the floor.
Harvard-style lecture theatre seats
Harvard-style lecture theatre seating was also installed in one of the lecture theatres. Another lecture theatre had seating with upholstered modesty panels that looked continuous compared to standard modesty panels that have visible breaks from one panel to the next.
Inova Turn and Learn lecture theatre seats
A total of 62 Inova Turn and Learn seats were installed in the Trevethick lecture theatre hall in the Queen’s Building. Inova Turn and Learn seating helps students and colleagues interact effectively and encourages collaborative learning.
