UKCloud Ltd (2016 Winner of Sunday Times Hiscox Tech Track100) are experiencing major growth due to their success in providing a true public cloud which is exclusive to public sector organisations in the UK. Not wanting to relocate, they asked Benchdesking.com to redesign their existing space with new furniture ideas, with a view to increasing staff occupancy and improving the ambience of their working environment.
Following meetings to fine tune the specification with the user group and senior management, Benchdesking were awarded the contract to space plan, supply, deliver & install furniture for 140 staff at their U.K Headquarters in Farnborough, Hampshire. This included bench desking, sit-stand workstations, storage, screening, reception and soft seating. Through innovative space planning, Benchdesking.com were able to increase client occupancy by 50% within the existing office space. Quite an achievement.
Being a secure site, all delivery & installation personnel were required to be security checked, and the timings of all deliveries needed to be extremely well coordinated and accurate.
The project was carried out successfully over two phases, totalling 6 days on site with virtually no disruption to UK Cloud’s day-to-day business operations.
