Elm House

Nottingham Trent University

Together with University of Brighton, EFG have developed a dynamic learning environment with the overall design being deliberately simple with the emphasis on creating a building that is ‘open for business’, welcoming and able to showcase the activities taking place inside.

Elm House Business School is a new build with sustainability at the heart of the new building which utilises passive heating and cooling as well as natural ventilation, so sustainability was a key criteria during product specification.

Architects took their inspiration from the famous ‘murmuration’ of flocks of starlings that gather across the Brighton seafront. Features include a triple-storey atrium providing a social and public performance and exhibition space and café as well as range of flexible teaching, workplace, and collaborative spaces.

" Working with the project team at EFG was a pleasure, especially during the busy lead up to the summer and our main window for all works at the University. The team were nothing but patient and efficient when asking for drawings, document sign offs, and waiting for product finishes; even when supply chains for FF&E were subject to delays due to the pandemic. Subsequently this has been navigated with relative ease due to the care and due diligence of not only the project leads, but the in house designers and installers too. Over all I have been very impressed with each aspect, including the quality of the final products and would be happy to work with EFG again in the future. "

“EFG worked with us design and install contemporary and stylish furniture solutions for the new Enterprise Centre. Throughout the process we were well informed of developments and installation schedules. The look, feel and operation of the new space is a great success, and we applaud the EFG team for all their help”

Neil Heard-White, Senior Project Manager University of Brighton

“EFG have performed exceptionally from start to finish in supporting the University’s new academic building, Elm House. The tender return was one of the strongest I have seen in my experience. The team at EFG have managed the delivery of the package in good time, with a high-quality service. Communication has been exceptional, with weekly calls and on-site support, everyone has been kept informed on progress constantly. The furniture has been well received by both staff and students alike. The governance on the project has been excellent and kept all aspects on track. We have been truly satisfied with the team at EFG and their performance. I would not hesitate to work with them again in the future. My personal thanks to Abbi, Errin and Alex for their support”
