Quadra AV Case Study :  Staycity York Meeting room fit out


Staycity Aparthotels offer long and short stay serviced apartments, which have all the amenities of home such as a fully equipped kitchen and furnished lounge and bedroom.

Staycity’s latest location has just opened directly outside York’s city walls, the hotel has 197 serviced apartments from studios to one and two-bedroom apartments.

In 2018 Staycity picked up the best operator award in the Serviced apartments awards.

The Brief

As well as offering serviced apartments the York location also offers a business suite.

Staycity’s procurement team were working on the fit out project with audio visual contractor Mark of Definition AV who was installing the AV kit for the room.

When they started discussing bespoke furniture requirements Mark brought Quadra on board.


The Challenge

The room needed to offer multiple furniture configurations as it will be hired out for meetings, training and other events.

The Solution

The Staycity team visited Quadra’s workshops and were shown the workshop and demo suite.

Following the visit Quadra made a site visit so we could measure up and work out the layout, we then designed custom tables based on the multi functional requirements the room had.

The tables were made light and easy to move, so the room could be easily set up in classroom, meeting or open space configuration. We also designed and built a matching lectern and 3 compartment cabinet. Quadra also supplied the chairs which are a cantilever design meaning they are stackable making them easy to move and store.

Mark at Definition AV asked Quadra to work up the designs based on their customers specific requirements and room constraints.

After looking at multiple design options for the tables we opted for quick release tubular legs which gave better leg space for each user.

The tables when in meeting configuration needed a removable centre panel which we made in contrasting black, with chrome cable grommets to enable equipment to be located on the desktop. The Staycity procurement manager looked at various samples when he visited Quadra and chose Cherry melamine finish.

Following various designs and adjustments the final design was signed off.

We were able to quickly turn this project around and into production within a short period of time as there was an impending open date to achieve.

The reason we buy from Quadra is that the company and staff are very friendly and their turnaround on products is exceptional”                      

We are a professional Audio Visual installation company that provides systems into commercial properties, These range from restaurants, bars, boardrooms, hotels, schools and village halls.

We have been using Quadra AV for quite a while now and their products are professionally built. We started buying cabinets and this has grown from there, in that we now offer a complete solution bringing audio, visual and AV furniture installation together for all our clients.

The initial feedback from the customer is that he is really happy with the project that we have carried out and the fact he can go to one company to procure all the equipment and furniture alike.
