With a global headquarters in the UK, Doosan Babcock employs around 5,000 personnel.As well as being at the forefront of “green” technologies Doosan Babcock employ a strategy of constant performance and business improvement and are one of the first within their industry to achieve certification for their Occupational Health department.Doosan Babcocks 360 degree approach to the effects of work on health was one of the criteria that induced them to consider the need for a new Group HQ. Last September they relocated to the Crawley Business Quarter having substantially refurbished the120,000 sq ft former Unilever HQ in Manor Royal.Clearly a primary consideration was the selection of the storage systems and ultimately the Bisley LateralFile™ system was selected over three other specialist manufacturers. With past experience of earlier Bisley products the client had no doubts regarding its durability and was delighted to find that the superior LateralFile™ system represented exceptional value.It was agreed that the maximum height of furniture within the open plan areas was to be no greater than 43.3" and Bisley's 3 drawer side filer with an 0.7" maple mfc top cap proved to be the perfect solution. The resulting furniture installation is cost effective, and the use of space efficient.The completion of this outstanding office environment will enable Doosan to continue its policy of business development through its investment in people. The furniture was all supplied through Business Environments (Studies) Ltd of Copthorne near Crawley who have enjoyed a long relationship with the client spanning 12 years.
