Staverton’s award-winning CL bench has been installed in The Co-operative Group’s new Manchester head office, 1 Angel Square.
Staverton CL was developed in collaboration with The Co-operative Group and specifically for the new 14-storey building, which was designed by 3D Reid. After a four month installation programme all 2,800 employees will now use Staverton CL.
The bench’s leg mounted power distribution unit powers up to 10 desks from just one 32 amp feed and its simple ‘plug in’ design guarantees easy installation and greater flexibility. Having worked closely with The Co-operative Group from the outset, Staverton’s design was able to deliver a six figure saving from reduced installation costs.
The bench’s clean lines protect the building’s strong design aesthetic and its versatility supports The Co-op’s activity-focused open plan approach.
Craig Lambert, facilities manager at 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.”
Staverton CL was commended at the 2012 BIFM Awards and has also been awarded a Design Guild Mark and the Design Prima award.
