The University of Dundee is one of our key clients in the sector and together we are on a journey of repairing and reupholstering their existing, damaged furniture, ensuring it is fit for purpose and aligns with the University’s values of sustainability.

As an alternative to buying new, the initial stage of the project saved approx. 600kg of furniture from going to landfill and saved over £5,000 for the University.

Keeping furniture in the economy for as long as possible

These university exam chairs had been a staple in the education sector since 1972, providing reliable service for over 50 years.

While many would assume that furniture like this has reached the end of its life, we work with universities and schools who see an opportunity to extend its usefulness, believing in the power of refurbishment to keep furniture in the economy for many years to come.
