The new Nobel Building at Barton Peveril in Hampshire is an eco-friendly structure with light, airy classrooms, solar panels and a rainwater harvesting system – making IT, media, maths, psychology and sport some of the most environmentally friendly subjects to study there!
The building represents a £4.2 million investment in the campus, designed by HNW Architects and built by Amiri Construction. Other facilities within the two storey structure include a media studio, staffroom, private study area and a coffee shop for the use of staff and students.
The estates and IT staff installed more than 1200 items of furniture as well as adding 200 new PCs to the network. KI, working with Prism, supplied a high volume of Intellect Wave Chairs for this showcase area of the campus.

The Intellect Wave Chairs were chosen to complement the light, airy setting of the student study areas in our new teaching building. Practical and comfortable, they are in constant use throughout the college day and fit neatly under desks when unoccupied.
Intellect Wave seating - Proven as a comfortable and durable range of seating, the Intellect Wave task chair was ideal for this new, modern space. Engineered to withstand tough classroom use, Intellect Wave exceeds industry standards for durability. Its lightweight, textured poly shells resist scratching, fading, chipping and denting, and is backed by KI's 15-year warranty.

Barton Peveril College were keen to ensure that the durability and design of the student furniture selected fulfilled all the criteria required for the Nobel Building. Following an extensive audit of various samples of ICT chairs the Intellect Wave IT chair was selected because it basically ticked all the boxes - comfort, design, and durability and very competitively priced. The Intellect Wave chair has been well received by the students hence the reason for all the repeat orders
