Higher Education and Academies

Inspiring Higher Education and Academy Transformations Throughout Kent, London, Sussex and UK Wide

Having worked on a wide range of projects over our 30 year history, we are experts in transforming the interiors of higher education institutions and academies. Whether you need a skills-specific college classroom fit out, sixth form common room refurbishment, university lecture theatre design or new reception furniture for your academy, we’ve got the project experience to deliver!

We offer a range of services to ensure your educational space is functional, sustainable and aesthetically pleasing, including:


Higher Education and Academy Fit Out

We provide a full range of higher education and academy fit out services to ensure your space is safe and ready to use, including mechanical & electrical works, asbestos removal, carpentry & joinery, and security alarm installation. In addition to this, we are well versed in Disability Discrimination Act (DDA) regulations and can fit out your space in accordance with the latest legislation.

Would you like to see a great example of what we can do for you? Check out our recent college fit out of the EKC construction block in Folkestone, Kent.


Higher Education and Academy Refurbishment

We can cover every aspect of your refurbishment project, from paint work and signage to furniture and flooring. Our track record includes the refurbishment of classrooms, university lecture theatres, staff rooms, WCs, canteens, libraries, reception areas and more. So, if your space looks tired and drab, we can help you to make it inspiring again!

Higher Education and Academy Furniture

We offer a wide range of practical and comfortable furniture for higher education institutions and academies. Whether you need furniture for a college or academy classroom, sixth form common room, reception area, library, campus café or university lecture theatre, we can guide you on the best solution for your needs. With our extensive range, you’re bound to find something that will meet your requirements!

Higher Education and Academy Design

We believe that client communication and feedback is key in delivering a successful project. Therefore, our in-house design team can help you to visualise your space with 2D plans and 3D renders. Furthermore, our team will also guide you on the best solutions to make your learning environment inspiring, from modern decorations to practical and sustainable furniture solutions.

Higher Education and Academy Space Planning

In order to unlock your learning environment’s full potential, intelligent space planning is essential. For example, our education design team can configure your space so it can safely house a specific number of students. You may also want to integrate new facilities, in which case we can re-configure the room to accommodate the change.

Interiors that sow the seeds for a successful future

Our higher education design, fit out and refurbishment services help students to progress in the workplace, and we love being a part of the journey. For example, we recently refurbished a college café for catering students learning how to prep and serve food.

Equally, our academy transformations are key in helping students to achieve exam success. Take Brampton Manor Academy, who celebrated their best ever A-Level and GCSE results in 2018 following works by Rap Interiors. We helped them by transforming a multitude of spaces, including a science lab, music room, prayer room and common room.
