Office Furniture & Office Refurbishment - Huntingdon, Cambridgeshire
This long standing client’s brief was to create additional meeting areas, new office furniture, hot desking space and to increase to the size of the call centre, all within the confines of the existing space.
The existing hard wired data infrastructure was in the wrong places and old desks were cluttered with trailing leads and endless extensions and adaptors.
The Acorn brief included making sure that every new and existing desk position in the working area, now had power and data at is feet, and that it was concealed within the furniture risers to bring power and data right up to the point of use. The use of modern cable integrated furniture, as well as the provision of new, slim line posture comfortable seating.
The site contained many high spec but obsolete walls that had to stay. The challenge was to introduce new partition walls that sat comfortably alongside the old, and allowed for changes in performance to room usage and occupancy. In order to retain some of the valuable bespoke doors that were released in the dismantling process, our senior joiner was required to modify and change reclaimed door leaves into new partition frames while making them look as good as new.
Working in an occupied call centre and insurance office placed additional constraints of noise and dust control on us and requirements not to disrupt power or data supply. This resulted in out of hours evenings and weekend working. The customer’s business carried on as if nothing was happening.
The mechanical and electrical specification meant our own electrical and data team had to work closely with the client’s IT department, restructured the cabling in the working areas without damage to existing facilities and always maintaining continuity of service and supply.
The full brief involved new partition walls, ceilings, flooring and decoration before a full M & E reconfiguration including data, lighting, power, fire alarm and mechanical ventilation. When this was complete, our installation teams moved in to provide new furniture, seating and screens, incorporating all the newly located power and data positions into the furniture’s cable management system. This resulted in a clean fresh office space with no trailing leads, unsightly cabling or unsafe extension cables. All delivered on time and on budget.
