This month Whitespace are happy to announce the completion of the main furniture contract for The University of Sheffield's new Faculty of Engineering Graduate School Building by Graham Construction. The new faculty, a seven storey 5355 sqm building, commenced on site in early 2012 and was completed in January 2014.


After working in collaboration with Whitespace, The University of Sheffield decided to lead the environmental way by choosing sustainable furniture from Senator International as its preferred option.  Whitespace specified the furniture ranges along with all fabrics, colourways and finishes to meet each room’s function and décor.


Ranges include Harley Pivot flip top tables with Ad-lib cantilever chairs in flexible teaching areas,  Sprint task chairs with the latest Crossover desking benches in post graduate study areas, Casper stools in laboratories , and Tommo club chairs and Pause two tone two seaters in breakout areas. With an ethos of Reduce, Reuse and Recycle, and with over 30 years’ experience in the manufacturing business,  Senator’s portfolio was able to satisfy the university’s desire to address and improve the environmental impact of its own activities.
