Kinnarps is Europe’s leading workplace furniture supplier, offering a comprehensive end-to-end service to clients in the public and private sectors. With a proven track record operating within the safeguards of approved government agreements, we work with customers to help them to do more with less, to innovate and to maximise ROI.
In the context of the One Public Estate programme and a wider requirement for local government managers to do more with less, making the best use of your estate is crucial. Our expertise in delivering agile workplaces – from initial investigation to final fit-out – has already saved local councils across the UK millions of pounds and thousands of square feet of floor space.
Implementing agile working practices in Blue Light Services can generate sizeable cost and space savings and significantly improve productivity, as we have shown through our work with both Kent and Hampshire police and fire services. Facilitating improved employee collaboration through effective workplace design is at the heart of what we do.
Consolidation is the watch-word for modern government, as initiatives like Universal Credit, Building Our Future and TW3 encourage the creation of flexible, agile workplaces which encourage collaboration and cross-functionality. Kinnarps ‘Next Office’ tool kit has helped some of the UK’s largest public and private sector organisations to optimise their working environments.
Expenditure in the charity sector is closely scrutinised with every pound spent accounted for. In this context, office refurbishment can be perceived as an unnecessary extravagance. However, our experience working with some of the largest charities in the UK shows that the efficiency savings made through effective workplace planning easily justify the cost of fit-out.
HCC’s Workstyle Programme, developed in collaboration with Kinnarps, delivers £2m efficiency savings annually, including a 28% reduction in running costs and a 25% increase in space utilisation.Read more
