Good morning Amy,

I have a question on what type of “noise mitigation” was used for your learning center? We have the same issue with our learning commons design and our proctoring/testing rooms not being sound proof.

Thank you,

Elizabeth

While I agree with Bruce on most scores, I would add that you will need some caster-free chairs for students with mobility issues. We have a lab that the designer presented us with that has all wheelie chairs and a hard floor. That is NOT accessible for our students who can’t sit down fluidly. It created a falling hazard.

Also, in our area, which is “open concept,” we needed noise mitigation, which the designers failed to account for despite our repeated requests. (Thankfully, we had some in our old location and I brought them along. The designers were not happy, but now the campus architect is replacing them with ones that match the design because he finally sees what we meant.)

Ashley,

Just a few thoughts from our experience:

·        Casters on everything for maximum mobility and flexibility
·        Portable whiteboards get a lot of use in our space
·        Fabric seat cushions are more comfortable and generally more attractive, but make sure they clean easily; frequent stains are to be expected in high-traffic areas
·        Consider power and charging needs if you can; AC outlets and USB ports built into the furniture (or on portable stands) can be pricey, but they will definitely get a lot of use

Happy shopping!

Hello LRSNASST Group!

I am being charged with designing a new (modestly sized) learning center on our campus. Hooray!

I wanted to know what your best – and even worst – Learning Center purchases have been. In particular, what furniture has worked best for flexibility and what pieces were purchased with great intentions but tutors later did not use them as anticipated.

Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Bonus points for hyperlink and/or contact information for vendors. 😊
