Essex & Suffolk Water’s new operations centre brings together staff formerly working at various sites across Chelmsford, Essex.Designed by Faulkner Brown Architects, the 43,000 sq ft building provides a highly flexible workspace with an emphasis on sustainability - the building is rated “excellent” by BREEAM.Bisley storage was chosen because of its ability to deliver a unified aesthetic, with units integrating seamlessly with the other workplace furniture. Specification included 211 Bisley LateralFile™ units plus 281 pedestals. In addition, there are 213 “top boxes” which sit on top of Knoll worksurfaces. These storage boxes feature a lockable, flipper-style opening, while also providing a measure of privacy and separation for employees.Other bespoke aspects of this project included runs of built-in cabinets that needed to be manufactured - including internal fittings - to a special 23.6" width. Groups of cabinets - in a variety of drawer and cupboard configurations - are used to subdivide the open plan environment.
