Workplace Designs was appointed to develop the FF&E scheme for the 7th and 8th floors of 2 Kingdom Street as a specialist consultant alongside the appointed architect. The team managed the procurement of the FF&E package from different client selected suppliers and delivered the projects for substantially less than the budgeted market prices. The FF&E package consisted of workstations, meeting chairs and stools, meeting, coffee and collaboration tables, soft seating and rugs as well as other miscellaneous and decorative products.
Workplace Designs developed bespoke furniture for the specific needs of this client providing a much more cost-effective solution than the off the shelf products available. The bespoke package included meeting tables made using recycled school and laboratory worktops to lend a semi-industrial style to the scheme. A one-off bespoke wardrobe was also designed and manufactured to suit with the upcycled theme. From concept to manufacture, Workplace Designs worked closely with the appointed architect and the client to meet their requirements and the end result received great feedback. WDL team also offered support with the relocation and installation of furniture from other client’s sites.
The project delivered an innovative design concept, providing the client with a highly motivating workspace. The diverse setting allows teams to work in a place that is built upon community, collaboration and knowledge sharing, where staff can find different spaces to suit their needs, whether formal, informal, quiet or vibrant.
