Case Studies

Majestic Wine Warehouses

Majestic Wines appointed Cubewing as their furniture supplier for their recent Head Office relocation. Cubewing were tasked with supplying all furniture for the open office area (seating up to 135 employees), meeting rooms, boardrooms, training rooms, reception and breakout areas. Majestic awarded Cubewing the contract in October 2013 and they worked closely together right through to the relocate in May 2014.

Rachel says “Throughout this time, Cubewing provided a thorough and efficient service and I can honestly say they were my right hand men! We are delighted with the end result. We have a crisp, clean, modern office environment and this is largely thanks to Cubewing’s efforts. I would happily recommend Cubewing to anyone considering a similar project to our own.”
Rachel Homewood – Facilities Manager


Royal Institute of International Affairs

The Institute has dealt with Cubewing for a long time now, especially with larger projects, such as when we refurnish a floor. Cubewing have always had a good understanding of our requirements and have always completed each product on time. I have no hesitation in recommending Cubewing as our main supplier of office furniture in London they deliver in time, on time, every time!
Dawn Margrett – Assistant Director (House & Personnel)


Celador International

Our need for a top design, reception area, incorporating glass desking was a tall order. We are very pleased with the outcome.
Hayley Clark – Procurement Officer


Securicor Guarding

The office furniture that we chose looks superb, meets our very specific IT needs and was installed with the minimum amount of disruption.
Roger Allen – Head of Buying


Magistrates Courts
Call centre staff for North and East Herts Magistrates Courts chose Cubewing Systems Office Furniture as part of a £120,000 refurbishment of the organisations’ customer service centre at Stevenage, including a complete revamp of the reception area with security glazing and pass-through trays. This work was carried out by our in house office design specialists.

“We needed to totally modernise our reception area, to bring it into the 21st Century and to incorporate a Call Centre the staff would be proud to work in” says contracts Manager David Hamilton. Tasked with the management of the centre refurbishment, David ensured that all staff played a key role in defining furniture solutions that met their specific needs, and Cubewing were happy to support him, overcoming technical difficulties caused by previous renovations by specifying and installing floor-to-floor fire resistant partitioning and specifying custom-built reception counters and desking.

Irene Buckley-Waters of the Courts Service says: “Thank you for the attention to detail and the service that your company has given us. The special call-centre and post table are exactly as we needed and all of the furniture was installed quickly and efficiently with minimum fuss. Our staff members are already feeling the benefits of the new layout and everyone is very impressed with the quality of the new furniture.”


Daimler Chrysler
When Daimler Chrysler first contacted Cubewing Systems from surfing the internet their first words were “We have been looking everywhere for good quality, reasonably priced desking, only to be offered ‘stack it high’ bargain basement type furniture, can you help us?” “Yes we certainly can” says Sales Manager Nigel Born.

After initial negotiations, Daimler Chrysler chose Brevis concept workstations, a total of over 120 workstations in all, with conference areas and executive suites from the Fulcrum 38+ range and HÅG task, executive and conference seating throughout.

“We were very impressed, the different areas complement each other well together, and the furniture specified by Cubewing met our requirements precisely” says Hussain Nakhwa, project Manager for Daimler Chrysler.

They chose Light Oak veneer with Mid-Green Nordic wool for the seating and screens, with contrasting murals for the walls. “The colours worked very well together. Light Oak is like a pair of jeans, it never dates and grows on you with time” explains Nigel.


Rockpools
Rockpools, the recruitment specialists, contacted us with some specific requirements, “We have a problem with space. We like the look of Ambus III but it doesn’t come in the size that we need”.

No problem, we discussed the client’s requirements with our Specials Department and, after a site survey and C.A.D. design, we come up with the answer – Standard desking only cut down by 20cm to accommodate all fifty staff and allow space for expansion.

“By doing this straight from the outset, and foreseeing our company’s growth potential, we had plenty of space for more workstations when the need arose” says Sara Buthlay, Head of Facilities.

All in Maple Veneer with Slate steel frames, Maple veneer wood-fronted storage with brushed aluminium handles and Plum Cordial screens. Black leather soft seating from GDB was also supplied to complement the curved, glass-topped reception suite, creating a modern, efficient, stylish look throughout the whole office.


Philippines National Bank
Philippines National Bank (Europe) had to relocate to new premises at very short notice. Crispin Saunders, the Deputy Managing Director contacted us to see if we would be able to help.

Crispin says “Despite the fact that I had had no communication with Cubewing before, from the start I found the service prompt and helpful. It did not seem to matter that our potential order was relatively small. We needed two desks within two weeks. The problem had been viewing any possible furniture, but the availability of a showroom close to the City was extremely convenient. Having visited twice and decided on the desks, the order was placed on the Tuesday and the desks were assembled and operational by midday the following Monday. I am impressed by the quality and finish of the furniture – K-West desks – and the efficient assembly that was done, when it was said it would be done. “Our relationship has only been extremely short, but it has been very satisfying to get efficient, helpful service, with deadlines met and with reasonable prices.”

The furniture chosen was from our popular K-West range in White Oak finish.
