Improving movement and collaboration through the clever use of storage furniture.



Brief



To meet the challenges of running a modern organisation and to continue meeting the needs of the public, the council needed to change the way they work. Their aim was to enhance how they used their workspaces and improve the environment for employees, at the same time as reducing costs.





Solutions



Hot desking and office flexibility was the answer for the council and Bisley supplied products that helped them transition into this way of working. To free up valuable floor-space, we installed high density InnerSpace mobile shelving and individual pedestals were replaced by lockers in many departments. Not only do the lockers provide easy access and secure storage for personal items, they enabled the creation of break out spaces ideal for collaborative working.





Results



The changes in the furniture and office layout encouraged more movement around the building. The lockers helped the council implement a clear desk policy, making it easier for employees to travel and reposition themselves around the building and work with different teams at different times, enhancing collaboration.




"Our goal is to create a forward thinking and future proofed office and our new furniture is really helping with the change to mobile working. Bisley has been very professional throughout, from advising which products would be most suitable to the slick installations."
