We help make your workspace great

Creating the perfect work, rest or play environment is crucial for stakeholder engagement and productivity. It’s time for your workplace to inspire your team and to build an environment where your people can thrive.

We advise and consult

Workplace furniture should adapt to people and not vice-versa. As specialists in work and learning space design (with over 45 years of industry experience), we can knowledgeably advise on the best solutions for your interior and furniture challenges. 

There are simply so many issues to be addressed when planning your move or refurbishment, from legal requirements and standards, through to space management, workflow, how to create an environment which fosters engagement and collaboration, well-being, biophilia, noise and acoustic consideration, corporate branding etc – we can help.

We ensure your workplaces encourage more active working habits, deliver interesting, fun spaces to work and improves team performance whilst at the same time full complying with standards, specifications, DSE & H&S issues.

We supply world class furniture

JPA are an independent family owned company who bring choice from the entire market-place to you and you projects. We select and tailor the best and most appropriate furniture products to each project, tailoring to your specific brief and individual project requirements. 

With world-class suppliers and a world-class furniture portfolio we bring furniture of the highest standards and specification to our work with you. We also offer refurbishment, maintenance and servicing to keep your furniture in tip top condition for longer.

We deliver award winning sustainability

JPA take pride in looking after the environment as well as our clients, so sustainability is a key to our project process. We provide an award-winning sustainable project approach delivering long-term value over total cost of life – financially, environmentally and socially.

We work with manufacturers to ensure that all our products have high proportion of recycled materials, are made so that parts can easily be replaced and eligible for SKa, BREEAM or LEED green building credits (although we need to know this is required in advance).

We maintain, reuse and recycle your furniture

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.

We move and re-locate your teams

Our own JPA installation team and vehicle fleet can also be utilised for workspace moves, storage (as we also have our own warehousing) and relocations.

Our project managers make it easy for you to organise reconfiguration planning, auditing, asset management, storage and crate hire with experienced, qualified labour and transport to help you 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 vehicle and fitting teams

Because we have our own employed fitting teams, delivery vehicles and warehousing we can offer our clients full control over the entire order process, from initial specification through to delivery, installation and post occupation support - it’s all part of the JPA service

We have the flexibility to dovetail with changing building or refurbishment schedules, store goods for call off when there are unexpected delays or get to site fast for emergency all outs – no more waiting 2 weeks for a site visit. 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 hassle free solutions for all your furniture 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.

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!
