Wigan Council

The Council took the strategic decision to undertake a comprehensive refurbishment of the existing Town Hall building after a feasibility study exploring the number of buildings they were currently occupying and by  bringing staff from a number of buildings under one roof proved savings could be made and service levels to the public improved. Plus3 architects were engaged to undertake a project to create open plan working floors and a number of collaborative work zones.

The Solution
Jenkinsons Office Interiors were appointed following a tender process to generate an overall solution that focused on the key requirements including aesthetics, functionality, sustainability and overall value for money. Over 700 shared desk bench positions were provided for around 1000 staff using Freeway benching and Clipper task chairs. Over 1000 locker positions were provided giving individual staff members secure storage space, breakout areas created and meeting rooms for 6 people up to 30 people on each floor.

The Result
After successfully completing the installation within the programme over 1000 staff now use the building utilising the space. The goals set were achieved and costs reduced.

The challenge was to achieve this in a building that had ‘listed’ status.

Comments
“Jenkinsons provided a complete package of help and advice during our recent Town Hall refurbishment program. Their professional project management team were able to help us throughout this process with product advice, space utilisation and planning, client liason and installation. We must say that Jenkinsons spent time to understand the council’s requirement and worked closely with the authority in ensuring the successful delivery of the scheme. None of our requests or changes were ever too much however challenging they may have been. Based on our experience, Jenkinsons provide a highly experienced, dedicated and professional team delivering total furniture solutions.”
