Weightmans’ Liverpool office rules in favour of Staverton ZD

Award winning legal services firm, Weightmans, has embraced a relocation project to bring together two separate offices in Liverpool. In an effort to maximise productivity and reduce occupancy costs, the firm decided to move its 550 staff to a single 95,000 sqft office located at The Plaza, 100 Old Hall Street.

Staverton’s 120 degree ZD furniture solution was decided favourite as it creates an open plan office, whilst also providing the necessary privacy for individuals.

With Weightmans’ new clear desk policy, a storage solution was implemented alongside the ZD product. Each staff member has a pedestal, storage tower and centralised rolling storage to maximise the daylight within the office. Staverton’s ZD  solution successfully compliments the modern and professional workspace created for Weightmans by Claremont Group Interiors Ltd.

David Lewis, Head of Weightmans’ Liverpool office said: “This office isn’t just about giving us a new working environment; it’s also about cultural integration as we bring together our teams from India Buildings and Dury House.”

Seven week countdown to Staverton CL installation at The Co-operative Group

British manufacturer, Staverton, will install 2800 CL benches for The Co-operative Group’s new head office in Manchester in just seven weeks’ time.

The win, which was announced earlier this year, is thought to be the largest furniture contract in the UK in 2012.

Staverton’s Rotherham factory is already in full production, ready for installation at the end of July.

The contract was secured after a period of collaborative design with The Co-operative Group and involved a six week turnaround from the initial brief to delivery of a proto-type.  The result is the new Staverton CL bench.  Concealing power and data resources within its core structure, the Staverton CL bench reduces IT and power installation costs during fit-out and throughout its life.

Tony Cole, design and manufacturing director for Staverton said: “This contract doesn’t simply recognise Staverton CL as a bench, it also acknowledges the way we approach clients’ briefs, really taking the time to understand and meet their specific needs. We were advised this was a real point of difference for us and are delighted with the outcome.  The factory is now very busy processing the order.”

Talking about the CL bench, Tony added: “By dealing with cabling and power in a creative manner we’ve designed a clever benching solution which ticks all the boxes for facilities managers, IT departments and most importantly, the employees.  The CL bench doesn’t compromise functionality or form.”

Staverton CL will be used with The Co-operative Group’s new 400,000 sq ft, BREEAM outstanding head office building at 1 Angel Square in Manchester.

Craig Lambert, facilities manager for The Co-operative Group said:  “Our challenge was to find a bench solution that could offer integrated power and data, protect the design aesthetic in our new head office and create flexible working spaces.”

“Staverton CL achieves this and surpasses everything else on the market. It was borne out of collaborative and clever thinking – Staverton really listened to our brief.”

The winner of a Design Guild Mark and the Design Prima Product Design award, Staverton CL is already receiving industry wide acclaim. For more information about CL view the product animation and client testimonial at www.staverton.co.uk/cl .

Staverton & Zip Launch Clever Thinking in Practice

Staverton, and showroom partner Zip UK, have launched Clever Thinking in Practice, a new social seminar programme for the architect and design community.

Designed to bring small and medium sized practices together, the first event will take place as part of Clerkenwell Design Week (22-24 May) and see Peter Hopkins of Clifford Tee & Gale explain the latest developments to Revit.  The 40 minute discussion will be followed by drinks and networking.

“We’ll be bringing in a variety of industry speakers and contributors and our new showroom will give us the perfect venue in the heart of Clerkenwell.  It’s the first time we’ve held an event like this and we’ll be looking for feedback from our guests to determine the content and direction of the next event.”

Design guild mark success for Staverton CL

It’s been proven.  Staverton CL really is clever thinking.

We’ve been awarded a Design Guild Mark by the Furniture Makers Company for the Staverton CL bench.

The award recognises the best of British design and excellence in the volume production of furniture.  It’s our second win in two months, following success with the Product Design award at Design Prima 2012.

Manufactured specifically for The Co-operative Group’s new 400,000 sqft head office in Manchester, the Staverton CL bench cleverly conceals power and data resources within the bench’s core structure.

Bulk capacity vertical cable risers and integrated power distribution unit allow desk power to be managed above the floor, reducing IT and power installation costs during fit-out and throughout the bench’s life.

Staverton has also developed a special power and data module, which is let into the desk’s surface. An optional sliding work-top creates a functional, clutter-free working platform that can be easily accessed and maintained by IT teams.

Key features:

  • An incorporated PDU powers up to ten desks with one 32 amp feed
  • Concealed power and data cabling
  • Optional sliding worktop for easy access to cabling
  • Individually height-settable desk tops
  • Quality finish and clean lines
  • Lifetime framework guarantee

Tony Cole, manufacturing and design director for Staverton and the originator of the CL bench said: “The Design Guild Mark is a coveted accolade and we’re delighted that Staverton CL is considered amongst the best of British furniture design. This second award win in as many months gives us invaluable third party endorsement and a great platform on which to take Staverton CL to an even wider market.”
