Furniture Standards

All furniture used by Faculties and Administrative Units at McGill must adhere to a set of standards established by the University's Design Services.  These guidelines are aimed at providing optimal spatial organization, while making McGill spaces sustainable and adapted to user needs.  You will find them further down in this page.

Official furniture suppliers are selected through public tenders based on criteria such as quality, durability, customer service and cost.

You will find below information on the suppliers selected for different types of furniture, as well as a listing of the items included in the contracts.
