University of Derby
The University of Derby is an ambitious, innovative and modern university focused on real world learning.
The University of Derby was ranked 2nd most recommended UK Modern University and number 5 for International Student Centre Support in the International Student Barometer 2016. The University’s main aim is to provide students with a top class international experience to help them develop their skills to ensure they succeed in their careers.
As part of their commitment to providing world class facilities, the University of Derby appointed Domino Interiors to refurbish three of their lecture theatres and adjoining corridor circulation areas.
A diligent approach to the health and safety of both Domino Staff and the University’s staff and students was highly important as the site was occupied throughout the works, which had to be completed in a relatively short programme period.
The project included a full strip-out and remodelling of the theatres with provision of new furniture, LED lighting installed within new MF feature ceilings, feature edge lighting to step treads, stainless steel balustrading, and bespoke joinery designed to improve acoustic management. The Audio Visual installation was particularly complex and required close liaison between Domino, ProAV and the University’s IT department.
The University was delighted with the quality of the project works and attention to detail, and laid particular praise for the quality of the ceiling and joinery works, and the management facilitating of the various sub-contract teams.
