Nomad Research Design Consultation, the Glasgow-based interior design specialist, has announced details of two new contracts with the University of Bristol and Royal Holloway University of London.

The company, which specialises in the interior design of university libraries and public buildings, has been appointed by the University of Bristol to oversee the refurbishment of both the medical and arts and social sciences libraries, and will also develop a design guide for the university’s ten other libraries.

On completion, the design guide will include detailed concepts such as spatial strategies, bespoke fittings, signage and navigation strategies, all of which will provide the University of Bristol with an overarching identity for its library service.

Nomad will also undertake a range of research methods, such as the use of popular social networking internet sites, to communicate with students about ideas.

Meanwhile, Royal Holloway University of London has appointed Nomad to oversee the design and refurbishment of the entrance level to its Bedford Library. Nomad will again encourage staff and student participation throughout the project.

Established in February 2006, founders Val Clugston and Scott Mason previously worked at Curious Oranj.
