We can furnish all areas of the workplace, whether it's a whole office environment, a breakout zone, cafeteria, reception area, meeting or board room. Even a cinema! One of Active's clients is Everyman Cinema, a fast growing network of boutique cinemas'.
Today's workplace is all about getting the most out of the space and the people using it. By taking the time to work with you to understand how the space will be used we will help you transform your workplace with the very latest on-trend,flexible and functional furniture solutions.
At Active we work with all the major office furniture designers and suppliers in the UK, including Verco, Allermuir, Orangebox, Boss Design, Mobili and Vitra. Our strong relationships mean that we know who to trust for high quality furniture and can provide samples to our clients so they are able to make informed purchasing decisions.
We have furnished Virgin Media's state of the art call centre, with their CEO commenting “it's the best call centre I've even been to, the transformation is amazing."
We don't just supply furniture we can also provide advice on choosing the right office furniture for your company. Our workplace consultancy service enables us to gather a range of research into the way your employees use the space around them including desk occupancy studies and research into furniture suitability. Through our research we can ensure that you choose the best furniture options to meet your needs of today as well as helping to future proof your decision.
For Sony we consolidated two sites, moved a 1000 people, and reconfigured exiting furniture to ensure it was fit for purpose in their new space.
Our approach is flexible meaning that you can mix and match products that work for you and suit your budget.
At Active we believe that great office furniture shouldn't just look good, it should feel good too! Our workplace furniture specialists are up to date with the latest ergonomic products and findings meaning we can help you furnish your workspace with the wellbeing of your employees in mind. Studies have proved there is an intrinsic link between the working environment and employee well-being. Choosing the right furniture for the tasks employees are likely to perform contribute to that sense of well-being. For example having quiet space in an otherwise busy, noisy open plan environment is seen as a must have by employees, even where physical space is limited an option of an acoustic sofa can create that much desired peaceful haven for a conference call or to work quietly on a laptop.
Our fitters and porters are trained and experienced in the installation and maintenance of all the furniture we provide. We house furniture in our very own warehouse acting as an essential part of the delivery chain. As the furniture is coming from us and not via a third party, we can confidently guarantee that we'll deliver the correct order, bang on time, every time.
We will also ensure that all waste packaging materials are returned to our site for sustainable recycle. Active is ISO:14001 accredited and takes it environmental responsibilities seriously.
When it comes to the removal of your unwanted or old office furniture, we make every effort to upcycle, recycle or reuse furniture where possible through our “Waste not, Want not scheme". This scheme gives our clients the opportunity to help local charities and community organisations as well as reducing their impact on the environment. Where disposal is unavoidable we ensure that our disposal methods are in line with latest directives and environmental guidelines. Active also holds a current waste carrier licence avoiding the need to involve third party waste carriers, keeping cost and process in check.
If you are a corporate body currently undergoing an office furniture or fit-out project, then you may like to consider the lease option for the finance of your project. We work in partnership with Plus Finance Ltd, the UK's market leader in offering finance packages to businesses buying furniture or refurbishing their working environments. Leasing can offer you a cost effective alternative to using cash resources for your project and as payments are fixed it allows you to budget effectively.
