Long term relationships with our clients is what we strive for and it was a pleasure to be approached once again to work with Brookside Junior High on the refurbishment of their library and resource room. Great relationships make collaboration easy and even though the school had a fixed budget for the project they knew that the Ven-Rez team would be creative and resourceful in maximizing every dollar!
The tables in the library were already Ven-Rez products so a quick and inexpensive fix to freshen up the tables and provide a “like-new” solution was for the school to simply buy new tabletops and attached them to the existing bases. This resourcefulness allowed for the purchase of new café height tables, laptop bars, and brightly coloured café height and regular height chairs. Plus, some soft seating for a reading nook.
A similar situation existed with the durable Ven-Rez library shelving. The shelving was still sound but by adding new end panels the overall look and feel was transformed into a warmer presentation. Importantly, this too helped keep the project within budget.
The resource room itself was a small area and the school wanted the space to be bright and inviting for students. Ven-Rez, in collaboration with the resource teacher, developed our new Puddle table to fit this space and by adding a whiteboard surface, students could now work right on the table! Adding soft seating and some brightly coloured cantilever chairs finished off the space.
The students are happy, the teacher is happy, and so are we! Working together with our clients to achieve affordable and functional spaces which engage students is what we do. Have a project in mind? Let’s talk!
