In 1828, the University of Central Lancashire was founded in Preston as the Institution for the Diffusion of Knowledge. 'Ex solo ad solem', or in translation, 'From the Earth to the Sun', has been its motto ever since - helping talented people from all walks of life to make the most of their potential.
Today Central Lancashire is one of the UK's largest universities with a student and staff community approaching 38,000. In 2010, the University became the first UK modern Higher Education institution to appear in the QS World University Rankings.
Creating a remodelled campus environment will help drive Central Lancashire's commitment to academic excellence, striving to ensure that its teaching and learning, research and knowledge exchange activities are all recognised as being of exceptional quality.
Re-modelling the Greenbank Lecture Theatre into a collaborative teaching space is part of the University's long-term strategic plan, with support from the Ferco team, UCLAN chose to fit a combination of our Arc One lecture chairs with modesty panels for the front row, Arc One Chairs with fixed writing ledges to the rear and our Turn & Learn Arc Swivel chairs for the collaborative section which incorporate a gas piston for cushioning and facilitating silent return mechanism along with maintenance free concealed pivot mechanism without finger traps
Revered for its comfort, function and versatility the ARC One is ergonomically shaped with a contoured back and focuses particular attention on lumbar support and correct posture. This ergonomically shaped lecture chair rotates through 360 degrees to facilitate collaborative learning and sharing, enabling group and pairwork with a minimum of fuss.
A wide range of fabric finishes and colours are available and UCLAN chose complimentary colours from Camira's 24/7 Flax range.
