Flexiform Wins HMRC Shipley & Newcastle Project

Flexiform have been awarded the contract for HMRC’s Shipley Collaboration Zone & Newcastle Office Refurbishment project.

We were awarded this Government Contract in November 2015 under the CCS framework, RM1501 Supply Delivery and Installation of Furniture and Associated Services, Lot 1- Office Furniture

This involved delivering a solution at two separate locations in Shipley & Newcastle to run through 2016.

The brief included that the furniture should be modern in design, robust and flexible. An Agile way of working was to be introduced to help teams form and disband so that the users could quickly adopt and adapt to the space that they are allocated. Agile working generates more local noise than traditional office environments. This is due to the nature of the collaborative ways of working and group dynamic that relies largely on vocal communication, white boarding, stand-up/collaborative meetings, interactive customer ‘show and tell’ progress sessions etc.

The colour scheme is bright and stimulating and using hard wearing fabrics for 24/7 use.

We provided complete workstations solutions, with two monitors per desk we incorporated large desks, task chairs, power and monitor arms. The breakout areas included Low & High Stools, tables, chairs and soft seating benching. Storage units and lockers were also supplied to fit in and around the offices.
