Leicester Office Furnishers have worked closely with Ash Field Academy for over 7 years in the continual modernisation and refurbishmentof their school. Ash Field Academy caters for children of all ages and abilities. It is a great place to be with a warm and welcoming atmosphere.
In 2014 Ash Field Academy were given thegreen light on an exciting new build, to replace temporary buildings with a permanent structure. They commissioned Leicester Office Furnishers to carry out the furniture design, supply and installation, for all their furniture needs in classrooms, dining areas, staff room, offices, a learning resource centre andmulti-functional hub, for school and community use.
``We’re thrilled to have these new facilities, it’s exactly what the children here at Ash Field deserve and is hugely exciting. They’re going to make a huge difference to us.``

Their brief to Leicester Office Furnishers was ‘’to create a versatile spacious working environment for our pupils and staff. A professional and inspirational environment to promote exciting opportunities and making sure that learning is fun, engaging and relevant’’.They had waited a long time for the new building and had an inspirational vision of what they required.
Leicester Office Furnishers and the dedicated team at Ash Field Academy worked closely together throughout the project. From the initial space planning and interior design to product sourcing and selection and installation. Contemporary furniture styles were used to enhance the building layout, furniture is elegant and simple, and does not dominate the spaces. Bright accent colours on walls are enhanced with the furnitureand upholstery,creatinga coherent solution and an inspiring building. A practical and ergonomic place to learn and work.
Leicester Office Furnishers attention to detail has resulted in a high standard of finish whilst maintaining an acceptable budget and also meeting the expectations of the Academy’s staff and students.
The result is an amazing learning environment. The feedback from pupils, staff and visitors has been exceptional. Julie Aquilina, the school Business Manager said ‘’the staff at Leicester Office Furnishers were very professional, they listened to our needs and offered honest advice on what was practical and achievable. We have produced a learning and working environment that far exceeded our initial expectations.The use of innovative colours and materials has produced a colourful, fresh, bright and inviting solution for the needs of the staff and pupils".
