Broadstock, one of the UK’s most respected FF&E suppliers, has won a prestigious single source contract with the University of Hull.

Established more than 35 years ago, Broadstock has its own manufacturing operation based in the North West; its Group Sales Director, Jon Stoney, said he was delighted to add Hull to the firm’s well-established university portfolio.

The initial project, valued at £600k, was won via competitive tender, and is of two years’ duration, with a possible two year extension. It involves working on the university’s significant Staff House refurbishment and new build Allam Medical Building. 

Jon said: “We’re extremely pleased to be working with the University of Hull, which really bought into our extensive offering, as the contract will include a combination of Broadstock’s services, including design consultation, budget analysis, product suggestions and full delivery and installation services.

“We fully understand the university’s aspirations and its five year plan, which involves an exciting combination of new build and a major refurbishment programme.”

In addition, Broadstock will carry out in-depth pre-design research with students and Academics, establishing what they expect, what they want and what they need to maximise the quality of their learning and teaching experiences. This work is complemented by post-occupancy analysis to ensure lessons are learnt, which can then be brought forward to the next project. 

“This important aspect of our services is acknowledged as being industry-leading and our university clients appreciate it enormously,” said Jon. “We are able to inform them definitively as to their students’ preferences, and this research in turn plays a pivotal role in the universities’ student satisfaction ratings.” 

This win is testament to the talent and experience of our account management team and in-house design team, and their ability to bring to life the university’s vision - Jon Stoney, Group Sales Director for Broadstock

Broadstock will also leverage its supply chain relationships to the university’s benefit, as well as ensuring impeccable delivery and installation through the firm’s wholly-owned delivery fleet and installation teams.

Jon added: “This win is testament to the talent and experience of our account management team and in-house design team, and their ability to bring to life the university’s vision'.
