Cardinal Newman College

Working in partnership with Servest, Cardinal Newman College needed a new retail and catering space to meet the needs of an increasingly diverse and demanding student audience

Our solution

We designed the large space from scratch creating a slick, contemporary and eye-catching experience which included a coffee shop, retail space and pizza/deli area. The modern feel was created to attract students and encourage them to stay on campus but also create a practical working environment using food grade fittings and solid, durable materials to cope with everyday use.

Working at pace, the project was completed within the summer holidays ready for the new Autumn term.

By using rapid concept development and 3D visualisation, our expert design team were able to make decisions quickly and working closely with our production and installation teams meant we were able to ensure everything was finished before the students returned.

“Our students love the feel of the new space, it’s the kind of thing they expect nowadays and has a real wow-factor. We’ve definitely seen more of them spending their down time on campus. Our food providers love it too; they’ve seen increased business and it works brilliantly to deliver food.”
