Project:ff&e, the specialist provider of furniture, fittings and equipment, has been chosen to use its innovative new Fortis kitchen, the first of its kind in the UK, on a trio of new student accommodation projects and won a FIRA Innovation award as a result.
The brief involved providing water-resistant kitchens without a cost premium to deal with the reoccurring problem of moisture reducing the lifespan of kitchen units. Because there was no existing product on the market, Project:ff&e created its own unique designs, which were recognised with the FIRA award.
The Fortis range works by reducing liquids getting into the joints between two pieces of worktop and also running down the front of a unit, getting into the drawers and underneath the unit where it may not be noticed.
In addition to student accommodation, the company also provides furniture, fittings and equipment for the office, housing, healthcare and education sectors.
