Blackpool Council

Blackpool Council were undertaking the largest redevelopment and refurbishment project in the town for many years. This project was to move 700 staff from various locations into one new purpose built building. In doing so they wanted to adapt new working practices and update there current furniture stock. They wanted a supplier who could not only supply furniture but work with them to provide “new work methods”, but also undertake workflow and occupation research. They chose Jenkinsons to do this.

The Solution
Jenkinsons were appointed after a tender process to provide all the furniture for the new build initially and the council for 3 years there after. Included in the solution Jenkinsons were to provide all designs, planning, staff consultations and furniture recommendations. A individual project team was created and worked in partnership with Blackpool staff for 18 months to achieve the project solution.

The Result
The project was a complete success, with all departments very happy with their new offices and ways of working. The Council has achieved a 10 staff to 7 desk ratio; which at the outset seemed impossible. The success of the project has resulted in the new furniture and solutions being now adopted throughout the council.

Comments
“Jenkinsons worked alongside Blackpool Council in delivering the largest redevelopment and regeneration project that the town has had for many years. We employed jenkinsons as the main furniture supplier for the interior fit out of the five story new council office. Moving over 700 staff into one location and changing their work styles radically. Jenkinsons provided an invaluable service to us not only as the furniture supplier , they provided excellent customer service and took the time to get to know our staff how they work and provide space layouts and furniture to match the work styles. Everything was tailored to what we required as a council. The project was on time and on budget. The transition was smooth and seamless. The whole package exceed our expectations, they have been a pleasure to work with and undoubtedly would recommend them.”
