Grain Brokers Australia approached us to assist them with upgrading their office furniture in their Perth office. Their main requirements were to maximise the limited space yet minimise the office noise and disruptions.
Once again the client wasn’t interested in the standard ‘off the shelf’ furniture but wanted a solution which would create an effective and productive workplace. Having seen a project we had previously completed the client had a very clear vision of what he required.
All that was left to do was to somehow include the company’s corporate colours in the furniture and plan the project to minimise disruption to the staff.
With the colours to match being a Silver and of course the magnificent Golden colour of a Western Australian wheat crop, the solution was very simple.
Office Desks – The desks were manufactured using Formica Warm White Particleboard. This kept the room nice and bright whilst also providing a very practical, easy to clean work surface.
Office Partitions – The partition screens running down the centre of the workstation cluster were upholstered in the Rim Trilogy 1 Daffodil fabric with a Silver frame. These screens really are the focal point in the open plan area and with the colour yellow known to portray positivity and warmth, they certainly assist in creating a motivating workspace for the users.
Divider Partitions – These partitions were included to minimise the noise transfer between the users and it was decided to match these to the Silver Frames of the Desks and the Partitions. The colour that best suited this was Formica Brushed Silver.
Office Storage – Each employee was allocated a dedicated Mobile Pedestal (in the same Silver) for individual filing requirements. There was also an existing central storage cabinet in the office which combined with the Mobile Pedestals made for a very organised and efficient filing system.
Soft Wiring – Each desk had 6 GPO, 3 Data & 1 USB outlets to cater to the client’s unique requirements. The power & data was run into each desk off 2 existing power poles.
Furniture and layout turned out really well and happy with it! It provides us with the space that we required. The installers were excellent, clean, efficient and polite. Nothing was an issue throughout the whole process!
