Case Studies


Derby College Group – Creating the right Esports space

We were recently approached by Derby College, who were looking to create and launch a space that would be used in conjunction with one of their first ever Esports courses.

The college wanted to see if we could assist in designing the new space and work together to combine our experience in education with gaming influences to create the Esports “look and feel” that they wanted. TOP-TEC happily took up the challenge, providing students with an environment where they could be fully immersed in the Esports gaming culture.

Cardiff University – Creating engaging + dynamic learning environments

We recently collaborated with Cardiff University to develop some exciting spaces in the new ABACWS building.

For this particular project we focused on two rooms, a large Collaborative IT Space and a Cyber Forensics Lab. For the IT Space, the University wanted to employ an ‘all eyes on the lecturer’ style, which required students to maintain eye contact when the lecturer is presenting at all times whilst avoiding fixed screens which would obscure the line of site.

University of Bristol

TOP-TEC recently provided ICT workspaces for over 276 students as part of £2million refurbishment project for two brand new ‘IT Learning Labs’ located in the School of Computer Science, Electrical and Electronic Engineering, and Engineering Maths (SCEEM).

University of Bedfordshire

TOP-TEC were recently tasked with creating bespoke lectern solutions for a series of engineering laboratories as part of their brand-new flagship Luton Campus project. The University required mobile and height adjustable teaching stations that could be adjusted to suit the individual teacher’s needs. Each unit also needed to incorporate Trespa worktops for use in the labs and worktop handles, smooth castors and an effective cable management system.

The University of Hong Kong – Blended Learning Laboratory

As part of an initiative for the refurbishment of its learning spaces, the University of Hong Kong wanted to develop a series of brand new active learning laboratories and blended learning classrooms. TOP-TEC were tasked with providing a multi-purpose workspace solution for up to 80 students, for installation into one of the new ‘Blended Learning Classrooms’ located in the Centennial Campus. The workspace solutions needed to be flexible to accommodate different activities for the students, be able to easily configure technology and remain tamper proof.

University of Wolverhampton – Emergency and Disaster Planning Room (Telford Innovation Campus)

The University had a clear idea of what needed to be achieved. He required a different style of learning space to traditional classrooms, and wanted to introduce collaborative style tables to encourage group and Active Learning. TOP-TEC were tasked with maximising the use out of the area to provide space for as many students as possible, whilst still maintaining an effective collaborative working environment.
