Royal Military Academy, Sandhurst

Joining forces with Willmott Dixon Construction Ltd, Team BOYCO supported in transforming the military band practice storage room for the Royal Military Academy in Sandhurst. Working with both the customer and contractor we supplied our 'Built to Last' shelving, personal cabinets and cloakroom furniture.

All items were crafted to bespoke requirements in our Greater Manchester factory, to accommodate and utilise all available space.

Project Scope

Since 1947, The Royal Military Academy Sandhurst has been training Officer Cadets to become Commissioned Officers in the British Army.

Located in a 600-acre estate by the border of Berkshire and Surrey, it has an international reputation for 'delivering world-class leadership', and to ensure this premium standard of education was upheld, the need arose for the academy to refurbish its military band practice room and storage area.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The BOYCO Way

Background

Providing both project management and in-house design support, BOYCO worked alongside Willmott Dixon Construction and HLM Architects to refine the needs of the military band storage room. There was a demand for high-quality products that could withstand the rigours of military use, from heavy uniforms to instruments. Team BOYCO was able to meet this requirement thanks to our 'Built to Last' standard, which applies to all our fixed furniture solutions.

Quality Bespoke Products

Catering to the students of the Royal Military Academy, we supplied our floor-fixed benching to the male and female changing rooms, and our double-sided island bench to the male changing rooms. Both sets of cloakroom furniture featured MFC slats, providing comfort and functionality. In our recent steps towards sustainability, the MFC slats on the benching has been sourced from sustainable forests.

As per the BOYCO standard, all metal work on the items fitted at the Royal Military Academy are coated in our ‘Hot Dip’ Nylon coating. As well as providing market-leading durability due to it being 4 times thicker than powder coated alternatives, it offers antimicrobial protection. Pioneered by BOYCO, it has been formulated to stop 99% of known bacteria from surviving on its surface, contributing to the health and safety practices of the academy. This finish offers a perfect solution to ensure the utmost cleanliness for the high touchpoint areas being used by military personnel and staff daily.

To complement the benching, and the Royal Military Academy's need for a high level of storage, bespoke personal cabinets were also installed. Boasting a unique feel and perfectly tailored to the Academy's needs, the cabinets were specially designed and manufactured with internal fixed shelves and a changing rail for hanging military uniforms. Anthracite grey was opted for due to its uniformity and sleek look, providing a professional finish to the changing rooms.

Due to the size of the units being 1.5 m wide x 2.1 m tall, BOYCO prioritised safe practices and customer needs when delivering the fixed furniture. The final weight of the fully constructed furniture was just over 140kg, so all items were assembled on-site

For the instrument storeroom, 4-tier floor and wall-fixed shelving with a steel frame was installed. This provides  high levels of support and strength which is essential due to the weight and value of the musical instruments being stored.

 

Project Success

Following the completion of the project, Team BOYCO visited Sandhurst Military Academy. Willmott Dixon Construction Ltd gave exceptional feedback, reflecting how happy they were with not only the band practice facility's transformation, but with the end-to-end experience working with BOYCO.

We are proud to be a part of this fantastic project for the Military School and have provided our 'Built to Last' products that are guaranteed to withstand the test of time.
