We project manage

JPA are a single source provider: All elements of your refurbishment or new build project are controlled in house, managed by your dedicated project manager and delivered by our internal purchasing, delivery and install sub-teams. This means we can keep a close eye on your project at every step of the way, delivering on time, to budget and on design. JPA have full control of the complete process, with one single point of contact from initiation to completion.

From pre-project waste audits to post-occupation support, JPA will continue looking after you and your workspaces as they continue to evolve to meet the needs of your organisation.

We design & optimise space

2D & 3D cad plans and panoramic virtual walk-throughs, provide realistic and accurate views of how your new space will look, providing peace of mind and building confidence for change.

CAD plans are useful as they provide visual feedback to help inform and direct change during the design phase, allowing designers, decision makers and stakeholders to visualise, amend and sign off agreed furniture layouts, colour schemes and work zones early in the process before costly decisions have been made. This type of collaborative approach at the design stage and ensures that the finished result meets and exceeds expectations.

We source responsibly

We combine our passion for people with passion for the planet, delivering measurable improvements to our clients’ environmental performance and additional value to each project. Sustainability is embedded across our products and services so you don’t have to think about it – we make it easy to procure and consume responsibly, actively lowering your carbon footprint and impact.

We search out sustainable products with high proportions of recycled content and recyclability - 100% of the products supplied by JPA can be recycled. Timber-based materials are from responsibly managed forests. We select and tailor the best and most sustainable furniture products for each project, sourcing from ethical supply chains with due diligence applied.

We reduce project carbon & waste

Every aspect of our business operation, services and products is woven together to drive down carbon use, waste and inefficiency, whilst increasing value and optimal environmental impact to clients and community. 

JPA offer low carbon furnishing solutions, resource maximisation and aero waste. We are carbon neutral and zero waste - 100% products supplied are recyclable.

We maximise your existing resources

JPA’s Project Dodo is our award-winning furniture maximisation programme. We have replaced the traditional LINEAR approach of sending redundant items to landfill with the CIRCULAR approach of assessing what elements can be re-used, repaired or re-purposed when organisations are upgrading their furniture.

We work with you to reduce furniture waste before you buy new by completing pre-project furniture audits where we assess what if any items are suitable for repair, refresh, reupholstery, reconfiguration or off-site relocation, prior to purchasing new furniture – there’s no excuse for single use.

Any unwanted items are collected by JPA for community rehoming or at worst materials recovery – nothing is wasted.

We move & re-locate you

Our own JPA installation teams can be utilised for workspace moves, storage and relocations. Fully trained and highly skilled our fitters can undertake most types of work from taking down and reconfiguring existing furniture in a different location in the same building, or transporting to a different site and integrating with new furniture into new schemes.

With fitting teams, vehicles and warehousing all under JPA ownership, we offer our clients full control over the entire order process, from initial specification through to delivery, installation and post occupation support. This offers unrivalled levels of flexibility and the ability to adapt to changing schedules as required.

Furniture auditing, asset management, storage and crate hire with experienced, qualified labour and transport are all on hand to help get the job done with minimal downtime and zero stress. Our fitters are also easily recognisable in their JPA uniforms, CSCS qualified and DBS checked for security and your peace of mind.

We use our own logistics

We work locally to our client-base for day-to-day work so our resources are already in easy reach of our clients. This has two benefits; firstly, it enables a faster, more flexible service, and secondly, it lowers our fleet miles and carbon emissions. Locality enables the flexibility to dovetail with changing building or refurbishment schedules, unexpected delays or storage call off requests.

It’s not unusual for JPA to carry top up stock and spare parts at our warehouse for emergency next day call off, whether out of hours or at weekends – we are here to help. Our full resources are at your disposal to ensure rapid response, minimal downtime and easy solutions for all your furniture related challenges.

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.

What is PROJECT DODO?

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!
