Silsden, United Kingdom (PressExposure) October 14, 2011 -- Ultimate Office Solutions are delighted to announce that a project that they've been involved with at South Trafford College has been given a prestigious RIBA award. RIBA awards are handed out each year by the Royal Institute of British Architects to projects worldwide that set very high standards in architecture. Dan Platt, Director of Ultimate Office Solutions, said: 'We supplied the furniture for the South Trafford College project and it's fantastic to see them win this award. The design of the Learning Resource Centre is absolutely stunning and working on it has been a fantastic opportunity for us.' RIBA gave the award to South Trafford College's Learning Resource Centre in recognition of its 'commitment to both strategic design and detail' and 'beautifully detailed teaching spaces.' 'The RIBA awards are very sought-after. The Learning Resource Centre was designed by Roger Stephenson Architects and it's a great example of the high quality that can be achieved in the design of modern learning environments,' added Dan.
Ultimate Office Solutions have built on their success of providing office furniture in Leeds, they've worked very successfully with a range of educational establishments.
Education environments is an area of furniture and design that Ultimate Office Solutions are becoming increasingly involved in. Education environments are the latest buzz words in interior design and are used describe the environments in which children and students learn. 'The design and planning of education environments is becoming a hugely important area for us. So much research has been done into this area of design in recent years that schools and colleges are now demanding high-quality spaces for their students to work in,' said Dan Platt. Lighting, colour, furniture that has been designed to be user-friendly and flexible - these are all important elements of designing a successful education environment. 'As well as providing office furniture Leeds wide, we're seeing huge changes in the way the design of furniture is developed for use in education situations and some of the ranges we now supply are ideal for use in education,' added Dan.
The research that has been done over the past decade into how children and young people learn has highlighted how the space around them can affect their learning. 'Schools and colleges are recognising that it's much better for kids to learn effectively in a bright, airy, hi-tech environment rather than in a dimly lit classroom. We're currently experiencing a great deal of interest from colleges and universities looking to improve their learning spaces so this RIBA award is very important to us,' Dan added.
