After an initial meeting it was clear what the product needed to be – they selected individual bench style desks with modern white framework and traditional Walnut tops – a great mix of old and new! The desks all needed to have modesty panels fitted (an optional extra) as they were all going to be client facing, and particular attention needed to be paid to the cable management to ensure customers could not see all the power & data leads coming into the desks! We spent some time with Winkworth getting the positions of the desks right on our space plans, whilst ensuring they all were up against the perimeter walls so the leads could feed directly into the cable trays under the desk. We also reduced the desk top size from 800mm to 700mm in order to make the room feel bigger.
There were lots of details to be sorted out before we could actually install the furniture as the client needed to keep working on their existing furniture right up to the day of installation! The solution we came up with was to hire a skip which we left at our Warehouse, started first thing in the morning with two fitters dismantling and removing the old furniture, while we left two others to stay and start unloading and installing the new furniture. Once all of the old furniture had been skipped we had all four fitters installing on site and the job was complete just after midday allowing the client to set up their phones & computers and start working again!
"We were due for a small refurb of our office and wanted to update our furniture to something more modern. Warrens showed us a selection of different styles and finishes of desks, and even invited us to their offices to see how they looked in an office setting. Their service, from helping us choose the best furniture for us, through to delivery and installation, was friendly, helpful and professional, and we wouldn’t hesitate to recommend them in the future."
