Guildford Baptist Church
Guildford Baptist Church, UK
ICS present their recent installation in the newly renovated surrounds of Guildford Baptist Church, UK. Following the beautiful transformation created by Re-Format Architects, Petersfield UK, ICS worked with the committee in the church to design, manufacture and install not one, but three styles of seating.
The regeneration of the auditorium coupled with the client’s requirement for an inclusive worship and community space.
Our Solution: This led to a full seating fitout of benches, flip seating in walkway and aisle areas along with stackable chairs to the front of the auditorium, providing the freedom to increase capacity when required. The stackable chairs and their trolley system allowed for neat and easy storage. All items were manufactured in Ash. The timber was bleached to reflect the bright space in the Auditorium. The upholstery fabric with its deep, soft chenille quality also incorporates Aquaclean technology allowing for easy maintenance into the future.
Many months of design, protypes, fabric choices and timber stains were discussed and considered at length by the passionate team at the church. The dedication by all involved even through the first lockdown never waned. ICS are honoured to have worked with the committee at Guildford Baptist Church.

“ICS have looked after us very well. The design of the furniture was crucial to the whole project and Gavin took the time to understand our needs and design and deliver the right product for us. Before production samples were made and brought to us, which was very helpful as we realised our design on the choir seating needed to be adjusted – which was done without any fuss or problem. I can (and often do when visitors comment on our church) recommend ICS to anyone looking to replace their furniture. Quality products, bespoke design, and good care of customers – I couldn’t have asked for more.”
