The past 18 months have been a rollercoaster for many of our business clients.
When office doors closed in 2020 we had not long fitted a brand new office for Shropshire communications company J&PR at their shared building in Wellington.
The staff had been at their new desks less than two months when they began working from home offices.
Working closely with you and your business
The new office had been planned out with our 3D planning tool, allowing directors Kirsty and Rhea to see how their chosen furniture would look – and adapt their choices when they saw it in situ on the plan.
The colours had been chosen to match their brand and each desk area was designed to fit the employee that would be working from it.
We then took their existing furniture in part exchange for their new range and added it to our preloved showroom.
When the team began working from home we supplied chairs and stationery items to ensure the employees had all they needed.
We were able to deliver them to individual homes and were on the end of the phone for further support when homeworking became longer term.
When the restrictions began to lift and Kirsty, Rhea and the staff returned to the office we were called in to fit screens between the desks as they worked to make the setting COVID-safe for all.
Unfortunately, the building they were based in had made much of its income from its hired meeting room space and due to the impact of the pandemic and lockdown on this income stream, the building owners decided to sell the space.
Re-planning and fitting in new space
J&PR’s new home was its own office space in Wellington with four office rooms – quite different from their previous, smaller, open-plan rooms.
We took their existing furniture and created further 3D plans to show Kirsty and Rhea how the furniture would fit into this new office and added further desks and furniture to match to accommodate a new member of staff.
We also planned out furniture and a video conferencing bundle for a new bespoke digital training room.
“Chrisbeon supported us throughout lockdown, during our various moves and adapting our furniture and office space as we needed it to ensure that our team could continue to work as normal and our PR clients were never affected,” says Rhea.
“We are so happy with our new space and how Richard, Craig and Ryan worked with us to make it perfect for our business and the employees in it.
“They have made what has been a very difficult time so much easier to deal with.”
Kirsty adds: “We had chairs and desks delivered to our homes and then when we moved into the new office we needed more chairs as the hybrid working model meant we needed home offices and our permanent office.
“Chrisbeon has the solution for everything and their installation team is brilliant and offers first-class service every time.”
