The brief was to deliver a clean and functional project while supporting the need for appropriate storage.
Fee Langstone were consolidating from two floors to one and we worked with them to create a phased install to ensure interruption to business as usual was minimal and project milestone timings achieved a seamless shift.
The project involved desking, screens, cable management and personal and shared storage.
We used Tidal H Frame Electric Sit to Stand Desks with custom tops on a black frame. The tops were manufactured with a scallop cut out at the back to allow for cable reticulation and management to take place under the desk. We supplied all soft wiring and monitor arms for the desks.
We used a frame mounted screen which meant each H Frame pod only required one screen. The screens were set to 1200mm H above floor level and the desks rise and fall independently of the screen to create a sense of modesty between users.
We matched the black desk frames with black cable baskets for a consistent aesthetic and to help camouflage cabling. A konexus unit was used on the desktop providing 1 GPO and 2 USB Ports to allow quick access to for users, and a 4 point GPO was placed under the desk.
We used black steel tambours for the shared and personal storage to match the desk frames. The Tambour storage takes up minimal floor space but offers substantial filing and storage capacity. The retractable doors mean there is no intrusion into egress routes around the office and storage can be left open without becoming a safety issue or hazard. Custom joinery tops were placed on the tambour storage to match the desktops.
We included some bespoke joinery items in the form of caddys and cupboards, there were manufactured in the same woodgrain as the desktops.
The new floor had minor works still being completed at the time of installation, mostly painting. We were able to assemble the desks on site away from the walls and move them into place once the work had been completed. This meant there were no delays in key dates and we could stick to project timings.
