Century Office recently took on one of their largest projects; to contribute to the refurbishment of the BT building on One London Road, Brentwood, Essex, in order to make way for new offices for one of the UK’s largest housebuilding companies, Taylor Wimpey.
The brief was to create a sleek, modern, and functional working environment. To achieve this, Century Office delivered 86 of their Javelin desks. This popular desk can be customised in multiple different ways with 13 different desktop finishes to choose from, sliding tops, the option to add a screen, and additional extras such as powdered feet. For this project, the desk was specified in white with an anthracite edge which contributes to the necessary element of modernity. Each desk was additionally fitted with sliding tops, power modules for plugs, USB and data, as well as screens in purple (Taylor Wimpey’s colour).
Ergonomic and comfortable seating was a must for this office space (as it should be with all), so every desk was accompanied by a mesh chair that can be adjusted to an individual’s shape. Customised to have a black frame, a black seat with seat slide, a white mesh back, grey arms and a grey base, the chair completes the ensemble to create a perfect pairing.
A number of meeting tables were also installed. 10 were for executive offices and another 4 were specifically for the meeting rooms. Each one was fitted with power modules as well as HDMI ports for a wall TV. A large boardroom table that can seat up to 18 people was also specified with the same additional features.
However, no office is complete without plenty of storage. For this reason, Century Office fitted white store walls around some of the high walls while some anthracite ones were added to some of the offices. Low storage units with angled tops were used for the hot-desking area.
The overall space was finished with white walls and grey carpet to make the office feel as light and airy as possible. The overall colour scheme of the project along with the relocation meant that Taylor Wimpey were able to give their employees and visitors a new, contemporary interior across one large floor area, complete with amazing views of the surrounding greenery.
Nigel Tullett at Taylor Wimpey East London comments, “Brilliant service and products, all installed on time by an excellent very professional team. I can’t praise enough how well our office fit out went, we have a great modern office environment which is appreciated by our staff. Century worked flawlessly with our project partners, Simott and more than willing to deal with those last-minute re-plans.” He continues, “A follow up demo by Steve Bays of Century of how to adjust and sit correctly has gone down very well with staff!”
