We have recently completed a £30,000 project to manufacture and install fitted education furniture for Lansdowne Children’s Home in Hailsham, after being selected by Beard Construction.
The project included manufacturing furniture for various areas of the home, including offices, kitchen, stores and dispensary.
The majority of the furniture was made with 25mm thick carcase and doors, as well as some standard 18mm thick furniture. Due to the environment, the storage units were fitted with anti-ligature handles.

School rebuilding programme
We welcome the recent pledge by the prime minister, Boris Johnson, to provide a £1bn schools rebuilding programme over a 10-year investment plan for upgrades and refurbishments. This is the first major schools rebuilding programme since 2014 and will make sure our schools and colleges are fit for the future. It is part of the prime minister’s plan to provide a world-class education for children and to help the economy bounce back from this year’s coronavirus crisis.
UK manufacturer and delivery services are becoming an attractive option for business responsible for building, refurbishing and fitting out education facilities. The main benefits of buying from a UK specialist furniture manufacturer, especially at the moment, are:
- Speed: UK manufactured furniture will not have to travel via air or sea freight or go through customs. This means we can complete your project quickly, and within your timeline requirements.
- Convenience: If ordering from overseas, you risk the furniture not arriving on time, should the company have to restrict its operations, or even close down temporarily because of lockdown regulations.
- Supporting British business: If you choose to purchase from a UK manufacturer, you can have complete peace of mind that you are helping the UK economy and supporting British businesses.
