Design and Innovation

Research and development is given a high profile at British Thornton, where it is considered to be fundamental to the success of the business and our future growth.

Our team of enthusiastic, graduate designers is empowered to push the boundaries of conventional thinking and look at new and innovative approaches to education, bringing on board the most up-to date and environmentally friendly materials and manufacturing methods. They are constantly working on all aspects of product development, space planning and best practice, taking into account all guidelines and recommendations.

Added to which they:

  • Are constantly creating new products and concepts;
  • Proto-type products for both internal and client approval;
  • Use the flow of information from our consultancy work with Academies, DCSF, British Standards, FIRA and individual clients, to ensure an innovative approach;
  • Listen to clients’ needs and act upon them;
  • Test new designs to BS standards and arrange wear testing by end users;
  • Investigate and utilise new materials and source at best price.

We adopt lateral thinking to keep you ahead of the game...
