Our dedicated, knowledgeable team will provide furniture solutions that have the evolving workplace needs at the forefront, from changing working habits such as hybrid-working and collaborative spaces, to integrating technology that makes the workspace a more efficient place to be.
We recognise that the modern office must do more than provide a desk, the office needs to facilitate staff engagement and encourage everyone to come into the office. The workplace must provide a sense of community, giving employees a choice of work area and collaboration space, good welfare facilities and social spaces to encourage interaction. It’s no longer the case that desking dominates the open plan office space, in fact, we are finding more and more office space is dedicated to collaboration and meeting. Workplace trends demonstrate more Informal soft seating areas, acoustic booths and high tables positioned in the open plan to support staff collaboration close to the desks. Popular trends also
include a dedicated canteen/social space for welfare, entertaining and events created away from the work area including informal booths and flexible furniture solutions like auditorium seating, flexible tables, mobile seating, and screens, so the space can be opened into a larger meeting room or town hall space.
It’s not just about predicting what’s next, either. One aspect of keeping an eye on tomorrow is ensuring the durability of furniture, which is why working with the right furniture provider is so important. All our furniture partners have tested their products to meet the latest European and British Standards, that way, you can be confident that your investment is well spent and will serve your organisation for years to come.
How does the furniture procurement process work?
You will be assigned a dedicated experienced furniture consultant who will work with you closely as part of the project team to achieve the agreed designer’s vision for a budget which you are happy with. They will negotiate with suppliers on your behalf, producing competitive accurate quotes and proposal documents. Once the products are agreed, they will place all orders and co-ordinate the install with your Ben Johnson project manager, communicating with all suppliers and organising delivery and installation. Where required they will attend the weekly project meetings a month before completion so delivery and access routes can be checked, and the phased installation of furniture can be co-ordinated with our furniture installers and fit-out team.
What is the carbon footprint of my project?
We believe strongly in minimising the environmental impact associated with our fitouts and furniture supply chain. During the design process your scheme will be designed with environmental sourcing and procurement in mind.
In terms of commercial furniture, all our suppliers are ISO14001 accredited, and to support your carbon neutral business strategy, your furniture consultant can provide you with an ESG sheet for every supplier used on your project.
We also offer a furniture recycling service, either helping our clients donate furniture to a local charity, upcycling the furniture for reuse or, as a last resort, recycling the furniture in an ethical way. To find out more about our ESG Approach and Sustainability contact us here.
