London Southbank University

With London South Bank University's vision of becoming London's top modern university by 2020 fast becoming a reality, MACOI in partnership with Gresham Office Furniture is delighted to be involved in the £5 million project which includes interior and furniture refurbishments throughout the campus.

Project Management Service including:
- Tender process completed
- Detailed risk and method statements
- Bespoke Furniture
- Delivery Schedule

During 2014, MACOI were first invited to provide the university with a pilot scheme for their student accommodation halls. MACOI in fact provided 4 bespoke pilot rooms which were tried and tested by the students themselves, ensuring they were not only durable but also fit for purpose. It was from this pilot scheme and a stringent SUPC (Southern Universities Purchasing Consortium) tender process that MACOI were awarded the contract which included the refurbishment of 64 bedrooms and the installation of loose furniture into 8 kitchen areas.

The high-quality purpose-built accommodation furniture range was designed for comfort, practicality and durability which helped create clean and inspiring residential spaces. The kitchen furniture comprised tables, chairs and sofas which were specifically selected for communal living.

MACOI worked closely with the appointed external project manager Kluba Jackman Designs Limited and alongside other trades whose services and products integrated with ours to ensure a successful project was delivered.


“We were very happy to partner with the team at MACOI, who with their extensive experience in the student accommodation sector could support us to deliver the furniture for the refurbishment of the accommodation in McLaren House. Working together we developed a design that met the brief within our budget. On site, the installation team worked hard to deliver a successfully completed project on time for our new student intake”.
