Purpose-built offices with late-stage furniture additions.
Mattioli Woods is a UK-based company providing wealth management and employee benefits. The company currently has 11 offices across the country, including the head office in Leicester.
The Leicester head office was recently completed, with the building being constructed and fully fitted out before Mattioli Woods was able to move in. We were contacted by the project fit-out company at a late stage after a large amount of the office had been designed.
We were selected to design and manufacture a number of bespoke fitted furniture items for the project. These had to work with and complement the existing design and be delivered around the ongoing construction work.
Bespoke fitted furniture
The office needed a range of fitted furniture, which meant bespoke design based on the designs of each area of the office space. We were tasked with creating fitted wall storage cupboards, bespoke locker units and booth seating.
In order to ensure our designs were suitable, we conducted a site survey to highlight any potential issues and to confirm that all the dimensions were correct. Following this, we created technical drawings of each item of furniture to be signed off by the client prior to manufacture.
Once approval was granted, we began manufacturing. This involved the production of items with non-standard fabrics and MRC finishes to ensure that the furniture matched with the colours that were used across the rest of the design specification.
Restricted access but on-time installation
Following the production of the bespoke fitted furniture for the project, our installation team got to work. We had careful designed the products with access restrictions in mind, especially as we had to deal with limited access to the upper floors of the building.
To ensure a successful install across the entire project, we manufactured many items in component form so they could easily be transported and then built on-site. In total, we installed 66 wall store modules across four floors, 20 bays of lockers with combination locks and a booth seating area – all in-line with the delivery timescales and design brief.
