Updating three floors of offices with minimal business disruption.
West Midlands Trains handles the running of West Midlands Railway and London Northwestern Railway from its head office in Birmingham city centre.
We were contacted during the early stages of planning a full refurbishment and refit, which was designed to bring the office’s facilities up-to-date and to improve the space’s usability. The refit project was time-limited in order to ensure there was as little disruption to the day-to-day running of the business.
Demanding timescales and creative solutions
Ultimately, Bluespot was selected for the project as our in-house production capability and processes meant that we were perfectly positioned to provide the creative approach to manufacturing that was needed in order to fit with the refit’s demanding timescales.
All three stories of the building were to be provided with new furniture throughout. This included 235 desk positions, as well as complementary storage solutions throughout the workspace.
The chosen furniture also needed to fit with the company’s chosen colour scheme, which was made possible thanks to our wide selection of finishings.
Varied furniture solutions delivered on-time
Ultimately, we provided a mix of desking options, made up of our robust R8 Lite range and adjustable-height desks. This means the office is now able to cater to various ways of working, creating an agile space. As well as the desks, we provided a mix of Sophia and Aria chairs for all of the desk positions.
When it came to meeting rooms, we designed and manufactured bespoke meeting tables that worked perfectly in the space. Alongside these, we provided our Maria meeting chairs, which perfectly complemented the design of the tables.
Storage was required across all three floors of the refit, including personal storage for West Midlands Trains’ employees. To ensure suitable storage options were available, we built and installed a combination of storage lockers and tall storage units with top and end clads to provide a value-engineered wallstore system. We also provided furniture for breakout tables for use in communal areas.
