Kings House Business Centre converts former Astra Zeneca training centre to sell out managed office suites and open areas with furnishing solutions from Maddison Business Systems.
When Anthony Moss, managing director of the recently opened Kings House Business Centre in Kings Langley, Hertfordshire, UK, was considering how to furnish the business needs and open areas, uppermost in his mind was the need to create precisely the right sort of environment for the businesses he hoped to attract. Moss wanted the look and feel to be uniquely different to other business centres in the area, and provide a facility that would help his clients create a quality working atmosphere, and impress visitors.
King's House sought Maddisons advice on suitable design and furniture approaches, and after discussions covering creative ideas and product selections from a choice of quality reception, office, and open area solutions, Maddisons received the contract.
Maddisons visited a number of the local serviced office providers to get an idea of the competitive standards. Working with a Kings House appointed designer, John Eldsworthy, Maddisons first brought in their CAD design services to model each of the offices and spaces that required furnishing. The advantage of the CAD services lay in their ability to pre-model and visualise how furnishings, layouts and colours would appear prior to the rooms being fitted out.
Next, Maddisons selected solutions from their range to provide an impressive reception area, trapezoidal table and chairs solutions for training rooms, to allow fast reconfiguration for workshops and seminars.
For focus rooms and individual offices, ergonomic workstations, desks and chairs, within a creative stimulating environment, were selected, and in the breakout areas, good-looking and comfortable leather seating was provided.
Dining facilities were a highlight, designed to a bistro/cafe theme complimenting the unique 72 seat multi media theatre, and a stylish up market concept adopted for the meeting table and chairs in the boardroom. The bistro required wooden flooring, and Maddisons worked with local flooring contractor CRC Flooring of Kings Langley, to complete this part of the project.
Total contract value was over £100,000, and clearly Kings House's clients liked the result, because the premises are usually fully occupied, and were sold out almost from the start!
Commenting on the work undertaken by Maddisons, Anthony Moss stated: The building was acquired in December 2006, having been empty for over four years, it needed a complete refurbishment. However with Maddison Business Systems support all the individual offices, breakout and reception areas were fully designed, furnished and operational, allowing us to move into Kings House at the end of March.
With such a tight schedule including the ordering of a special reception counter MBS and Tony Maddison worked wonders. Their fitters worked around the clock to insure that were open for business on 2nd April 2007.
Tony Maddison, joint MD, Maddisons Business Systems added " it was an interesting project for us, because we had a free rein to offer all of our creative services, our design skills, and top of the range solutions, to come up with a furnishing solution that was attractive, welcoming and practical."
