Great campus design
Numerous components can contribute to a warm, welcoming environment that fosters learning. One of the most important is the sense of community that’s possible when students, staff and visitors are able to easily spend time and socialize with one another.

We’ve all heard the term “college town” used to describe a community that has a certain look and feel. You may not be able to pinpoint each of the elements necessary to create that atmosphere, but you know a college town when you’re in one.

A well-designed campus is the same way. There are numerous components that can contribute to a warm, welcoming environment that fosters learning. One of the most important is the sense of community that’s possible when students, staff and visitors are able to easily spend time and socialize with one another. That is why selecting the correct outdoor furniture is an essential aspect of the campus design process.

If students want to sit and talk between classes or study outside, they need benches, tables and chairs to do so. When a couple decides to have a picnic, are there receptacles nearby to help with the cleanup? Plenty of bike racks cut down on traffic, congestion and reduce the need for parking.

These are the considerations that add up to a positive atmosphere. A campus design that recognizes the role outdoor furniture plays in creating this atmosphere will be more successful than one where these furnishings are an afterthought.

It’s also important to note that furniture made from environmentally friendly, sustainable materials may also help a project achieve its LEED certification goals.

Our mission at Anova is to provide high-quality outdoor furniture that contributes to great campus design. This doesn't mean that we simply offer the necessary furniture, Anova offers the right furniture. The stylish benches we make come in a variety of sizes, shapes and materials - but they are also durable. Our commercial benches come with a 20-year structural warranty.

The tables made by Anova carry the same warranty. They are built with powder-coated or plastisol-coated steel, or recycled plastic, and will withstand years of use while never losing their appeal.

Students and professors may not recognize how this furniture helps make their campus a great place to be, they will just know that it is.
