New Inverurie Community Campus choose KI seating

Opening its doors in late 2020, The Inverurie Community Campus in Aberdeenshire is a new £55m facility, accommodating 1,600 pupils.

As part of its bespoke furniture, fixtures, and equipment (FF&E) package, Deanestor specified a wide variety of KI seating to meet the contemporary design and overall needs of the school.

Ramsay McDonald, Managing Director of Deanestor Scotland said, "KI's education seating has an excellent reputation for durability, quality and value for money which made it an obvious choice for such a landmark project and a demanding educational environment. The Postura+ chair should serve the school community well for the long term, providing comfortable and flexible seating ready for ever-evolving learning models, now and in the future."

The Postura+ chair is used throughout the school's classrooms, the Postura+ high chairs accompany poseur-height tables in the cafeteria, and Postura+ stools are located in the science laboratories. The colours chosen across the Postura+ range include Sugar Plum, Lime Zest, Slate Grey, and Aqua Blue.

These Postura+ chairs were chosen for their ergonomic design and renowned durability. Easy to clean, stain-resistant, and light, they are ideal for the school's modern learning environments that require flexibility and user reconfiguration.

A selection of KI's other seating ranges were also selected, including the Ruckus chair. These chairs encourage movement and collaboration, allowing students to redirect their attention quickly and easily. The integrated storage rack under the seat provides a convenient place to keep bags, books and other materials close at hand. 

Mark Mitchell, Learning Estates Programme Manager for Aberdeenshire Council who played a key role in the project added, "We wanted to provide students with the facilities to learn whilst doing, to complement more traditional learning methods. That is why we have created so many flexible and multipurpose learning spaces with a variety of equipment and furniture to support new and innovative pedagogies." 

Doni seating features an articulating backrest for added user comfort and has been specified with different base styles to suit various applications around the school. A colourful selection of Hatton chairs brightens up the cafeteria and other communal areas. Teachers have also been provided with ergonomic Intellect Wave task chairs.
