A new contemporary workplace to boost productivity and support growth was the specification request which went out to tender from a technology company.
In 2019, the company’s office in Staines took an extra floor in its building to accommodate its growing number of employees so a refit was needed on the 30,000sqft space.
After being successful in tendering for both the desking and ancillary furniture packages for the new floor, Insightful Environments were asked to take the original furniture concepts provided by interior design company Maris and value engineer the final selection to a fixed budget without compromising the original scheme.
Working within a tight schedule with only three months until install, Insightful Environments used its knowledge of the furniture market to suggest and demonstrate alternatives where appropriate that kept to the original scheme and met the budget. We then developed the detailed finishes schedule, holding finishes workshops with ServiceNow and Maris to agree the final selection.
After updating the layout plans with the details of the final furniture selection, we coordinated closely with the contractors to ensure that power was available in all the right places.
The Insightful Environment team worked closely with over 28 different suppliers, chosen to ensure that orders were placed promptly, enabling delivery within the tight schedule. Frovi were one of the suppliers able to meet this tight timescale, with the Relic Cloud being a central feature in the overall workplace design.
The finished space now provides a vibrant new office for the technology company with a greater selection of setting types to meet the needs of different types of work, a truly contemporary workplace.
