We completed our most far flung installation yet this month!
We love a challenge and this one certainly was! The job consisted of 68 bench workstations with pedestals and wire management all made by West Sussex Office Furniture Ltd.
On 27th February we loaded the container and sent it off on its 3,443 mile journey from Egham to Times Square, New York City. Due to bad weather, both here and there, the arrival of the shipment was slightly delayed but we sent our fitter, Adrian Norfor, to oversee the job and deal with all eventualities! He was charged with managing a local team of assemblers to ensure that Metric’s high service and delivery standards were achieved.
We had worked with our client, Sunrise Brokers, before when we delivered and installed 105 workstations overnight at their central London based offices. They were thrilled with the job we did for them so we had a lot to live up to!
This time the location was a high rise building on Times Square and the office space was on the 25th floor. The goods were finally delivered late evening and the team worked through the night to ensure the job was completed on time!
We are pleased to say that our client was once again delighted with the end result –
“Thank you very much for an excellent job with the furniture, the finished product is even better than I imagined. Despite all the hurdles we had with the local delivery company the end job is a true testament of Adrian’s ability to get a job done under time pressure. Thanks again for a job very well done. “John Trears, Chief Operating Officer, Sunrise Brokers LLC.
Goes to show that no job is too big or small, too far or too high for Metric Interiors!!
Works commenced this week at Haleworth House, Egham for our client Clarke Recruitment Solutions.
We are delighted to be working with Clarke Recruitment as they are a young, forward thinking company who are bucking the trend in the recruitment sector. Unlike the rest who are primarily retail based Clarke Recruitment are able to move to office premises due to their cutting edge approach to recruitment interviewing which involves video conferencing with employers and candidates.
This unique approach means that flexible, multi-purpose meeting areas have been incorporated including open plan soft seating areas and also a media video conference wall within a partitioned meeting room.
This exciting project involves stripping out the 52 square metres of floor space and completely fit out the area including partitioning, decoration, carpet, air conditioning, ceiling, lighting and furniture.
Over the course of the next couple of weeks we will keep you posted with progress.
Work is under way this week on a number of projects. One of which is Globe Air Cargo who are moving to first floor office at Westpoint, Heathrow.
In preparation for the imminent arrival of the HQ staff we are carrying out a complete refit of the office area including the reconfiguration of electrics, decorating, flooring, partitioning and blinds.
The open- plan offices will be home to 20 workstations which will be installed by us together with a partitioned office and print area.
Progress to date has been good and completion is set to be both on time and on budget.
Finished shots to follow…..
Despite wide spread disruption to the local area due to the flooding,work continues on-schedule at Townends’ headquarters in Chertsey.
Metric have made quick work reconfiguring the area over two floors to incorporate a meeting room, training room, cellular offices, open plan work area and tea points.
Over the course of a week we have reconfigured air conditioning and electrics, fixed partitioning, redecorated and removed the existing flooring ready for re-carpeting and for the arrival of their new furniture.
Following the successful refurbishment of their Teddington offices Metric were invited to create and install new and innovative training/meeting areas with a particular focus on flexible use of space. Each room was given a very different design treatment creating areas suitable to various meeting requirements.
The three rooms were named The Lab, The Forest and The Space.
The Lab is a bright, quirky, ‘clinical’ space. The combination of a large presentation wall, conference seating, re-configurable tabling, soft seating and storage allows for the configuration of a number of distinct meeting facilities – formal and informal. The mood created by the room design is conducive to focussed thought productivity.
The Forest is a quiet, reflective and relaxed environment. Digital wall covering and mirrored walls are incorporated for dramatic effect and combined with grass textured carpet you are transported to the great outdoors escaping the normal office constraints and allowing for creative thought and conversation. Soft seating throughout in muted tones reflect the flowers of the forest and further adds to the escapism of the environment.
The Space is a relaxed, informal area with white brick walls and stripy floors incorporating hot desking for internet access, games consoles and table football. It is a chill out area inspiring creative thought and collaborative discussion.
