Schools & Universities
Britain is renowned for having one of, if not the best, educational systems in the world. Our schools not only deliver the superb learning opportunities, but many deliver this learning from some of the finest examples of architectural excellence in Britain. We believe that these buildings are a key element in inspiring young men and women to achieve educational success and we are proud that we play our part in developing and preserving these icons of learning through our skilled bespoke furniture service.
At our workshops in the Warwickshire countryside, our skilled designers and craftsmen have worked on numerous examples of Britain's architectural heritage including delivery of those same exacting standards to independent schools. Our consultative support is used to gauge your precise cultural needs: our sympathetic designs embrace your existing surroundings and our cabinetmakers craft furniture that will inspire your people whilst transforming your interiors for many generations to come.

St Hilda's College, Oxford
As well as supplying the finer elements of bespoke furniture N.E.J. Stevenson has been asked to provide residential furniture for St Hilda's College, Oxford, which we were delighted to do. This complex refit required us to cost engineer our service to meet the needs of the client and maximise available budget. Working in this way we were able to provide them with a unique project designed to meet their criteria, rather than settling for a standard catalogue range of furniture items. Completed in ash veneer all the bedrooms were completed on time and to budget.
Following the success of the furniture supplied to the David Wilson Library we were commissioned to design new furniture for the University's degree ceremonies. This comprised a new lectern, mace stand and tables for the Dean to hold the degree scrolls securely, overcoming problems with the protective outer cylinders rolling-off.
Schools learning programme
The opportunity for school children to get a true idea of what manufacturing industry has to offer them has been very limited for quite some time. As parents and manufacturers we feel we have a duty to change this. Today's domestic economy requires a vibrant manufacturing sector in order to thrive and we do a disservice to our children if we deny them the opportunity to have fulfilling careers in a wide range of primary industries, which provide areas rich in design with ample opportunity to excel. At N.E.J. Stevenson we have started pilot projects in the local area to enable the students of several schools the opportunity to understand how what they learn at school, is used in business. Initial projects developed in conjunction with the school's careers officers and departmental heads at Bilton High, Harris and Rugby School have set the students several manufacturing, estimating and sales led assignments to work on during term time.
