    Godfrey Syrett are a designer and manufacturer of furniture solutions for the primary, secondary, and higher education sectors.

    Established in 1947, we have been manufacturing in the North-East of England for over 70 years. We’re experts in creating and delivering inspirational education environments; covering both fitted and loose furniture elements. We work with both main contractors and end customers, controlling the whole process from initial enquiry to product delivery and installation. Our Design and Space Planning team work with customers, and their key stakeholders; to understand the project requirements and create spaces which completely encompass their vision.

    Recent projects include the National College for High Speed Rail (campuses in Doncaster and Birmingham). Welcoming its first cohort of students in September 2017, NCHSR offers a new kind of specialist training to tackle the skills gap in engineering, design, planning, and manufacturing; as well as aspects such as communications. The College will be integral to providing workers for HS2.

    Working with the site contractor Willmott Dixon, we designed and manufactured furniture for the Doncaster and Birmingham campuses, working within BIM as per the project requirements.

    With a combined floor space of over 143,000sqft, these highly specialised buildings provide workshop space, classrooms, outdoor training areas incorporating railway tracks, and social spaces. We provided a selection of innovative products to suit the learning environments, including classroom furniture and plenty of breakout and informal collaborative furniture such as Spark-Hi booths.
