Loughborough University, Students’ Union
Loughborough University’s Students Union is considered to be one of the biggest and best SUs in the country and it even won the Sunday Times Award for best student experience. The Union offers 14000 students a 3500 capacity area with several different venues, including bars, cafés, restaurants and clubs.
Following on from the re-vamp of John Cooper’s bar, Cognito and Fusion bars have also had a complete refurbishment, giving the Students Union premises an edgy look and feel.
Cognito has a capacity of 475 and with its timeless bookcase look wallpaper featuring leather bound books that complement the soft leather chairs and chunky wood furniture; the space offers a cosy escape from the everyday hustle & bustle of student life. Fusion bar can accommodate 800 people and it regularly sees some major acts. The funky graffiti next to the deejay booth mirrors the colours of the rainbow light installation that illuminates most of the dance floor.
What we delivered:
For both areas, we installed Karndean products: Da Vinci Van Gogh Ebony and Da Vinci Lime Oak. It was a tight schedule to be ready for Fresher’s week. So, we had to do our part when the electricians installed the light rig, but we worked our magic, which included some tradesmen almost literally floating around in the air and managed to complete the project in time, ready for those party feet.
