We advise and consult

We love every minute spent in the planning stages as the consequences of getting it right affect a wide range of business outcomes needed for success. Creating a variety of comfortable task-based workspaces will enable teams to perform for longer, enjoy the experience and be productive – also contributing to Wellbeing.

Brilliant workplace interiors aid retention, engagement and attraction of talent across generations, ensuring the knowledge, capability and skill sets to support business growth, essential for all organisations.

We project manage

JPA are a single source provider, uniquely handling all elements of the refurbishment process in-house. Dedicated Prince 2 qualified project managers liaise with stakeholders, managing every stage through internal purchasing, service, delivery and installation 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 order process, with one single point of contact from initiation to completion. We then support clients’ post-occupation to ensure long-term value from investment, with maintenance, reconfiguration and re-working services to ensure low operational costs – and carbon.

We design spaces

Our teams create 2D & 3D cad plans and panoramic virtual walk-throughs, enabling clients to visualise how their new spaces will look, providing peace of mind and building confidence for the change process.

Visual feedback is useful 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 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. We make it easy to procure and consume responsibly, actively lowering the project’s carbon footprint and negative impact.

We do this through a trusted and robust supply chain and products with proven credential such as Ecolabels, certified timber, low VOCs and EPDs. In addition, we try to source locally w here possible, bringing together local workshops and manufacturing partners who reflect our own values and those of our clients.

We reduce 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.

We do this through specifying quality furniture with length warranties, by re-working existing items back into new schemes, by providing embedded site-based maintenance programmes, community re-homing schemes and furniture recycling. These reduce furniture carbon, furniture waste and eliminate furniture landfill.

JPA’s installation works are also carbon neutral.

We maximise furniture resources

JPA’s Project Dodo is an award-winning furniture maximisation programme ensuring nothing goes to landfill.

We work with clients to reduce furniture waste through pre-project site audits in the planning stages to assess whether any items can be re-worked back into the projects as is, or whether they require restorative work to get back into suitable condition for re-use.

This often yields surprising results with reduced project costs, carbon savings and lower waste costs. Any truly redundant items are collected by JPA for community rehoming or at worst materials recovery – nothing is wasted

We move & re-locate

Our own JPA installation teams are used for workspace moves, storage and relocations. Fully trained and highly skilled, our fitters are experienced in dismantling and reconfiguring for re-use and potential reconfiguration elsewhere in revised schemes.

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

JPA fitters are uniformed and easily recognisable, 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 resources are placed in easy reach. This enables a faster, more flexible service whilst also lowering 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

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.

The good news is that JPA have an award-winning furniture collection, re-use and recycling programme already in place.

I need a chair for my home, can you supply it?

We have a homeworking chair and furniture programme in place with 5 day delivery – please ask 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?

The furniture we supply is from ethical and sustainable sources – with materials from managed and renewable sources. 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.

Can you help me re-locate my office space?

We can dismantle, pack and move organisations of all types

Can you repair furniture?

We can certainly come out to have a look to see if we can repair existing furniture, or you can send us an image. We can then advise whether repairs would be cost effective and worth the investment.

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!

Arcadis

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!
