Rushcliffe Borough Council
Rushcliffe Borough Council needed a smooth transition for their high profile move from an old building with multiple small offices to a brand new £15 million open plan space and the Rushcliffe Arena leisure facility.
They required a high quality, attractive space for staff and visitors and through the design, supply and installation of contemporary furniture we achieved this. We undertook showroom visits to assist in their furniture selection process and produced computer generated images for reviews, alongside setting up a sample workstation in their existing office to assist with internal presentations to new staff.
We accurately planned space to comply with exacting storage requirements and included open plan workstations with screen arms and above and below desk power, seating, breakout, meeting, reception and café areas in our designs.
The final solution included using thirteen different manufacturers for furniture and our extensive network of specialist suppliers to provide bespoke elements such as fabrics and glass storage tops in corporate colours.
Our project management experience and structured tried and tested approach to logistics ensured all the products arrived on site when required and with minimal fuss. Our flexible approach and the can-do attitude of our project manager, installation supervisor and fitting team ensured despite difficult site conditions installation was completed on time and within budget.
Mocha designed the scheme for our new offices. We moved from old mismatched offices dotted over several floors to a brand new open plan office on just one floor. We needed modern furniture to fit the new building. Mocha grasped our needs and our budget and designed an impressive scheme consisting of workbenches for traditional desk working, café and bistro furniture for our staff kitchen, soft furnishes for break out spaces and private discussions and new meeting room furniture for formal meeting rooms. We were so impressed with the scheme Mocha came up with for our office that we also asked them to design and supply complementary furniture for our reception and customer café too. From initial scoping, design, space planning, furniture selection, delivery and install, Mocha oversaw the whole process and made the experience hassle free, even down to ensuring the odd damaged item was replaced by the suppliers without any stress to us. We were also hosted on a trip to London to meet suppliers and to see and feel the furniture proposed for our scheme. Mocha’s USP is that they source from several suppliers to amalgamate the best mix and match solution to meet your needs and budget. Great eye for design, good understanding of managing budget limitations without compromise on quality and great customer service. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Mocha to other organisations.
