Back to work 

JPA Workspaces are working with organisations and businesses to plan for easing staff safely and cost effectively back to work. It’s our mission to help both employers and employees feel more
confident and safer about returning to the workplace.

We’re here to help you adapt by implementing practical solutions that support social distancing whilst improving the feeling of working in safe and healthy environments.

Employers are also going to have to make their offices appealing to come back to whilst demonstrating actions taken to make our staff comfortable enough to want to return.

Be Office Ready

Are you looking to reopen your premises again? 

Do you want to know how to manage social distancing in your company?

JPA can support you in ensuring social distancing - this is important because Covid 19 is transmitted from person to person in airborne droplets or through surface contamination, so layout, surfaces and fabrics combined will all help stop the spread and keep us healthy.

Protective Screens

We’ve all learnt to video conference but it’s not the same. Nobody knows how or when to interact, which is such an important part of our human behaviour. 

The role of the workplace, more than ever, is to collaborate, discuss issues, stimulate creativity, share ideas, learn and socialise. As we’ve all learned to socially distance ourselves, we’ve also learnt how vital the office is for our own wellbeing and vital need for human interaction. 

Our three stage approach is how we can help get back to the new normal.  For fold-able and Recycled fabric brochures please scroll down.

Anti-microbial Fabrics and Vinyls

Coronavirus has caused global turmoil and placed new emphasis on issues of hygiene and sanitation. 

While it’s impossible to apply social distancing to the furniture we sit on, what we can do is make our upholstery as safe and as easy to clean as possible when it comes to infection control.

Safety Mats & Floor Messaging

Social distancing floor mats from JPA are the perfect way to reinforce social distancing regulations reminding staff, clients and customers of the distancing guidelines. A great vidual reminder of the rules in place to help maintain a safe distance, for the wellbeing of all parties.

Unlike stickers, floor mats can be simply and quickly moved and relaid without leaving a sticky residue.

Social Distancing Carpet Tiles

The workplace needs re-thinking and this creates profound new design challenges. Floor covering can provide the perfect medium for informative communications that can direct traffic flow and indicate the positioning of individuals and furniture pieces. 

Signage embedded into the floor is impossible to overlook and simple to follow.   The ‘Social Factor’ range from JPA is a collection of informational carpet tile graphics that can easily be embedded into any carpet tile layout.

Frequently asked questions

Do you deliver and install my furniture?

JPA deliver and fully install all furniture supplied, with our very own teams of fitters in easily recognisable red liveried vehicles. Our fitters are fully trained (and DBS checked for peace of mind) and will deliver and assemble your new furniture as part of the job, leaving it ready for you to use straight away. We’ll show you how it works just in case and then also remove any packaging materials for recycling, with nothing going to landfill.

Can you help me with planning my space?

Our design team can help you plan and furnish all types and sizes of workspace including fixed desks, hot desks, breakout and collaborative spaces, chill and café spaces, meeting and mixing spaces. We help you make the most of your space, dealing with all legislative and regulatory issues so you don’t have to, whilst creating effective, engaging areas for your teams to work, rest and play.

What if I need help after my furniture has been delivered?

Because we only sell products from robust, tried and tested manufacturers, we underwrite all factory warranties free of charge. We’re happy to work with your cleaning and maintenance teams to show them how to get the best from your furniture, and also to give product training and refresher training as needed. If hot desking means that someone else keeps adjusting your chair, you need to know how to re-set it to make it work for you and get comfy. We’re here to before, during and after furniture installation.

What do I do with my old furniture?

The good news is that JPA have an award-winning furniture collection, re-use and recycling programme already in place. We can discuss options for removal of your old furniture when planning your new furniture, but can also collect your unwanted furniture as a stand alone service. Either way, we guarantee that none of your unwanted furniture goes to landfill. Simply get in touch for more details.

How can my office be more sustainable?

Better sustainability can be achieved by all organisations of all sizes. Firstly we can help by keeping the furniture you already have in use for longer, by repairing, refreshing and reupholstering it – we call this PROJECT DODO, preventing your old furniture from becoming extinct! Not only does this prevent furniture landfill, but it’s also a cheaper option than buying new and using more resources. We can also reconfigure your furniture, re-arranging it into different set-ups to suit changing workflow and business requirements

How do I know where my furniture comes from?

All the furniture we supply is from ethical and sustainable sources -the board we use is FSC certified from managed and renewable sources and all standard fabrics carry the EcoLabel. Our supply chain is checked against stringent criteria to also make sure that product manufacturers are actively promoting social welfare both internally and down their own supply chains. You can rely on JPA for quality, sustainability and long-term value.


JPA’s Project Dodo is our own award-winning furniture maximisation programme! We work with you to help your furniture last longer before you buy new, through repairs, refresh, reupholstery, reconfiguration or off-site relocation – there’s no excuse for single use! If you really can’t use it, we’ll simply collect it and try and rehome it in the community or recycle it for materials recovery. Either way, we make it easy for your organisation to reduce furniture waste and eliminate furniture landfill.

Do I have to dispose of the packaging?

No, the good news is that after unwrapping and assembling your furniture ready for use, we collect all the packaging and take it back to our warehouse for re-use or recycling.

A collection of happy clients

"We really appreciated JPA's involvement in Sustainable St Albans Week; it was brilliant to have a local business so involved, and show that sustainability can absolutely be combined with running a profitable business….As a local, family-owned firm, they are always thinking of ways to live their values through their work, and offer great customer service."

Sustainable St Albans Week

We have worked with Fiona, James and the team across various schemes, however one of the most exciting is the re-manufacture of end of what would normally be termed ‘end of life’ furniture. By providing such a forward thinking service, JPA are able to demonstrate reduced costs to the companies they are working with as well as genuinely supporting the green agenda by significantly reducing waste through their innovative approach to recycling and reuse ensure zero landfill impact. The Green Triangle are delighted to be involved in supporting JPA in pushing this scheme out to businesses and organisations across Hertfordshire and beyond and highly commend JPA for their approach to sustainability, carbon reduction and their push to become as environmentally friendly as possible!

The Green Triangle

I have worked with JPA Furniture on the IOE Level 4 & 5 Project and found them to be helpful, supportive and proactive. The project was initiated upon the Merger of IOE and UCL and was a politically sensitive project. JPA provided great service and helped harmonise the relationship between IOE and UCL estates by providing rapid response and excellent service. The project manager James and his team had a ‘can do’ attitude and nothing was too much trouble.
Great job!


Fiona was brilliant - we were looking to buy a few chairs to put on stage for our conference and she loaned us a couple of chairs and they were perfect - she deserves a big bonus!
