Staverton CL has been selected for Auto Trader’s new flagship Manchester office.
More than 500 desks will be installed in the 60,000 sq ft office at Ask Development’s First Street scheme and will support the company in its bid for a more open and collaborative working style.
Claremont Group Interiors has been appointed to provide all aspects of the interior design and fit-out including furniture and audio-visual solutions. The interior design concept also includes four cars and two vans, selected by Auto Trader employees, which will be craned in to the office and provide creative and collaborative work spaces.
Installation of the bench desks will support a phased occupation by Auto Trader’s team, with the whole 600 strong workforce in place by the end of June 2014.
Staverton CL offers a range of benefits to users, namely large working spaces, as well as to Auto Trader’s facilities management and IT teams. The bench desk removes the need for specialist electrical installation as all power issues are dealt with above the floor. A leg-mounted PDU delivers power for up to ten desks and a simple ‘plug in’ design, promotes easy installation and greater flexibility. Sliding tops, vertical risers, and hinged containment trays allow service teams to maintain a safe yet accessible power distribution system. CL is individually height settable, achieved through the use of stackable spacers.
