Innovation is synonymous with Staverton.
It’s what we do.
We deliver the most value when our clients present challenges that ‘off the shelf’ just can’t solve.
We used our problem solving and design expertise to innovate for The Co-operative Group – developing a bench workstation with integrated data and power that removed the need for specialist electrical installation as all power issues are dealt with above the floor. We used the same passion and design expertise to develop a mobile sit-stand desk for gaming company King too.
Top Brands Choose Staverton
BBC, Capital One, Sky and Burberry are among the brands who have chosen Staverton’s workstations for their employees in the last two years.
Successful companies acknowledge the importance of a carefully planned workplace with well-designed and manufactured office furniture. We have been lucky enough to work with clients who share our commitment to innovation and quality when it comes to fitted office furniture and helped them create the perfect workspace solutions for their people.
We’ve helped with the design, manufacture and installation of workstation furniture for companies from different industries, with different requirements but all sharing high expectations for workstations that encourage wellbeing and productivity among their employees. We have used our problem solving and design expertise to create unique and innovative solutions for, among others, GSK, Auto Trader, Talk Talk and Visa.
The project began with an intensive review of the user needs to help Paddy Power Betfair achieve their agile working goals. This process was undertaken in close cooperation with the client team and included product storyboarding and mock-ups for testing and user feedback.
Staverton’s challenges included creating softly shaped workstations, with minimal joints, to encourage more flexible working and less ownership of the desk space. Some of these benches also had to accommodate high-level TV screens.
Staverton also developed audiovisual furniture solutions, suitable for small video conference rooms, where both high & low tables were requested. We also designed a new storage programme to include client-specific compact lockers, a recycling station, a printer hub and coat storage.
“After nearly 20 years of working with and around furniture supply and installation, I have never worked with a better supplier that Staverton. I have had the pleasure of working with Paul and his team for 2 years and they have always provided an exceptional service from design concept right through to delivery. The product knowledge, design and problem solving the team provide has been invaluable in the delivery of a number of refurbishment and relocation projects and best of all their tenacity to get things exactly right has always resulted in a surprise free install. I cannot recommend them highly enough”

TalkTalk’s largescale call centre required minimalist bench workstation, enabling flexible occupation for employees working multiple shift patterns. There were further requirements to provide training and audiovisual furniture solutions.
Staverton designed ultralight 3.6m bench workstations. They are continuous single-piece worksurfaces to avoid partitions between staff. This led to the client’s request for single 3.6m dividing screens to complement the worksurfaces.
We also redesigned the desk substructure to incorporate a single and movable central leg for the 3.6m bench workstations. Power can be picked up at any point within a 1000mm of the centre line, without the need to relocate floor outlets.
“When TalkTalk was planning an office move, it was important to reflect their ‘digital first’ culture within the workplace. TalkTalk was looking for a space tailored to their staff‘s specific needs — both now and in the future. Staverton designed meeting and collaboration furniture solutions — and catered for TalkTalk’s audiovisual needs. The desks are a bench furniture system to allow for flexible working and prevent partitions between staff. Staverton met everyone’s requirements perfectly”

A building’s environmental performance is evaluated, rated and certified by the Building Research Establishment Environmental Assessment Method (BREEAM). The office furniture that we supplied to our clients, The Co-operative Group, in 2012, helped their workplace One Angel Square receive the highest score ever awarded by the rating system – an impressive eco-rating of 95.16%. BREEAM recognised the materials used in our products, their recyclability and life process. These are guaranteed through ISO 14001:2015 Environmental Management Systems, FSC® Chain of Custody Certification and FISP Furniture Industry Sustainability Programme.

Sustainable Office Design and Furniture
We were one of the first companies in the UK to achieve a BREEAM standard in recognition of our commitment to sustainability. If you’re working towards achieving BREEAM, our products can help you meet the required standards.
The Co-operative Group required a bench workstation for its new Manchester head office that would manage all power requirements above floor level and reflect the open-plan design aesthetic.
Staverton designed CL, a bench which houses a power distribution unit in the intermediate leg and saved the client more than £250,000 in electrical installation costs. CL also offers inset-desk top power for easy plug and play, optional sliding top access to concealed cables and worksurfaces that appear as if they’re floating.
“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”

Interactive entertainment company King wanted a mobile sit-stand desk solution to promote agile working in its London offices, so that’s what we gave them.
Staverton SMS can be moved as the team requirements change and thanks to its plug and play simplicity the team can move the desks by themselves.
“Staverton designed a mobile sit-stand desk that really supports us in our bid to embrace agile working. We now have the flexibility for our teams to move themselves, without needing to involve facilities or IT”
Global Facilities Director, King
“I have enjoyed a very successful working relationship with the Staverton team over the last 5 years and selecting them to work with us on this time-critical and high profile project was an easy decision. The project team which we developed with Paul Edward and Charles Gee performed as we have come to expect from Staverton, delivering exceptional results in a professional manner, on time and on budget. It has been a pleasure to work with them on this project and we are delighted that we have more than met our expectations with the results”
“We wanted a bench solution that would support our team’s dynamic and collaborative working style and at the same time make ongoing IT and maintenance much easier by bringing all power above the floor. Staverton stood out because the design team really listened to what we were trying to achieve”
“Staverton truly engaged with us to enable the best possible outcome, and continuously worked hard to successfully fulfil all our requirements. They worked in collaboration with us to help make the change happen. We would be very happy to use them again in the future”
“Staverton’s customer focus, quality products and expert advice always ensure we receive the best service and attention from a wonderful, friendly and flexible team. Their innovative ideas allow us to provide more suitable spaces for our clients while always meeting our often urgent and short-notice demands”
“We are delighted with the quality and functionality of our furniture, which Staverton supplied at a very competitive price”
“I am delighted that our vision for the new organisation has been realised so effectively by Staverton”
“We are all very happy with the results. We are now in really nice offices… and we find it much more collaborative than it was before, due to the fact that we now work in an open-plan space. I would recommend Staverton and I would definitely consider them for future projects”
“Staverton have followed the brief to provide a solution to meet the exact needs of Acxiom and have provided a fantastic new working environment for our associates”
