Furnishing of New Build Foresterhill Court in Aberdeen | News | Procurement Hub

Procured through the Furniture and furnishing framework, our partner FRC Living has finished furnishing a newly built development for Grampian Housing Association.

Grampian is a leading housing association based in the North East of Scotland, providing services to over 3,500 households. Their purpose is to provide affordable housing that supports local communities.

Foresterhill Court is their newly built development, specifically for NHS keyworkers. It consists of five apartment blocks with 101 units in total, 28 of which will be let as fully furnished.

FRC Living supplied a comprehensive range of furniture and products to fully equip the apartments ready for tenants. This involved the provision of starter packs of kitchen appliances, utility room items and bedding, along with a range of accessories.

They were able to provide bespoke furniture allowing cohesiveness with the neutral colour scheme used. The clean and timeless look of the apartments give a base which is easy for tenants to style and inject their own personality into.

"We were really impressed by the range of products FRC Living were able to supply. They sourced and tailored products to meet our specifications and provided an excellent project management service. The process was efficient and highly organised and we appreciated FRC Living's ability to accommodate changes to timescales. Their experience in their field is evident and we valued their communication and expertise in completing this project." - Alison Neilson, Senior Sales & Leasing Co-ordinator

FRC's living ranges and the wooden elements of their seating are FSC certified and produced in the UK. They are also heat and scratch resistant, giving greater longevity and a sustained quality appearance. The fabrics used in our furniture is Crib 5 certified for Fire Retardancy with advanced anti-microbial, anti-bacterial and MRSA resistant properties. Resistance to stains and abrasion means our furniture is durable and long lasting.

The customer experienced some delays to their build completion date, but our framework partner were able to provide flexibility in their delivery arrangements. Grampian Housing Association gave feedback, and noted the excellent quality of each aspect of their experience along with the helpfulness of FRC's sales and in-house delivery team.
