Manufacturer of the benches and tables is to be contractor's choice, or they are welcome to undertake this in-house. However, to date the project has been discussed with Factory Furniture due to similarities with items of furniture that are in their standard range and existing furniture at The University.

Drawings show a proposal to move a wayfinding point / sign presently on the site. This will be co-ordinated by the University if it goes ahead. If it doesn't, the spacing of the benches and orientation of bench B1 will be adjusted to suit (as shown in the feasibility document)

Drawings show a proposal for bespoke planters outside the Edward Boyle Library windows. Details and means of procurement of these are TBC and therefore do not form part of this contract.
