Kinnarps has worked with some of the UK’s biggest public and private sector companies, on contracts ranging from small supply projects to the end-to-end management of major redesigns and fit-outs. Over our 70 years we have developed a reputation for sharp thinking, quality products and comprehensive project management. We work with customers to understand their challenges and come up with solutions which fit their budget and timescale, helping improve efficiency and wellbeing in the workplace.
“We couldn’t have possibly achieved what we have without the services of reliable, efficient suppliers like Kinnarps, who understood what we were up against and moved quickly to get the job done on budget and to deadline.”North Somerset Council
Tearfund’s big facilities challenge was to break down barriers between departments. Their big HR challenge was to reassure their staff, some of whom felt uncomfortable with the charity spending money on itself, that the redesign would make the charity more efficient and save money in the long term.
Kinnarps was chosen for our careful and collaborative approach, our ability to work alongside other suppliers, and our commitment to sustainability throughout the fabrication and fit-out process. We worked with Tearfund to develop an office environment with break-out areas and room for collaboration, as well as assisting with acoustics and change management.Read more
An internationally-recognised conservation charity, WWF-UK is a high-profile advocate of sustainable, environmentally-friendly living.
When it decided to relocate to Woking, their new home needed to be an exemplar of a genuinely environmentally responsible workplace; a building that would work in harmony with nature and inspire, engage and educate its employees and visitors. Our sustainability credentials were decisive in winning us the contract, and our office layout expertise enabled them to move from 300 individual desks to 160 benched workstations in an open-plan office which has won widespread acclaim.
It was a visit to the WWF headquarters that alerted Battersea Cats & Dogs Home to the potential benefits of partnering with Kinnarps for their office renovation project.
They were desperate to change the office culture and working environment from old-fashioned ‘make do’ to modern and efficient; to create an environment where different teams could work together effectively and where communication between sites was improved. And they needed to do it in a cost-sensitive way, so as not to give donors and sponsors the wrong impression. Our solution struck the perfect balance – a scheme that was operative but not ostentatious, and which will serve them well for years to come.
