Whilst it’s easy to be sceptical about the value to be gained from taking a sustainable approach, JPA deliver measurable savings and a more positive environmental impact for our clients as a consequence of doing business.
Our initial stance is always to maximise clients’ existing furniture through our repair/refresh or re-planning/reconfiguration services and then to see if any existing items can be integrated into refurbishments or moves, alongside new.
For example, a recent building consolidation project at Redbridge CCG, saw furniture re-use savings of £16,070 where existing items were integrated into the new scheme. Additionally JPA dealt with redundant furniture, re-homing all items and eliminating all furniture landfill saving 3.47tonnes of furniture landfill and over 2.74 tonnes co2e.
What was the brief?
To relocate staff from Maritime House and Imperial Office Suites to North House, creating 72 new agile working spaces.
Key criteria included re-location and re-use of as much of the existing furniture as possible in the new premises dovetailing seamlessly with new furniture items specified and supplied. JPA Furniture were tasked with project managing the relocation, including space planning and design of the new workspaces in North House, dismantling and transporting existing furniture, supplying and moving creates to the new location, specifying, delivering and installing the new items, and, rehoming and recycling any unwanted furniture.
