Barclays Mercantile

Disaster Recovery

Churchill Plaza. The building was fire damaged. 2 floors smoke damaged, 3 floors fire damaged. 7 lower floors water damaged. Rather than remove all furniture from lower 7 floors we jacked all the furniture up to allow drying out and for comms and flooring people to replace the floor and comms equipment, saving money and time to reopen floors.

The floors above - all damaged furniture was removed and disposed of. Upper floors were refurbished and Larchbond installed new furniture. On smoke damaged floors the furniture was removed and refurbished where possible, in other cases the furniture was replaced.

M.W.B.

Work Station Efficiency

With the arrival of flat screen computer monitors, MWB saw that the older style L-Shaped desk was no longer the most efficient way of furnishing offices. New flat screens could be arm mounted and so Larchbond undertook a nationwide program taking away all the L-Shaped desks, and removing redundant L- Sections and then re-machining all existing desktops to a smaller footprint. This enabled MWB to vastly increase the occupancy of their serviced office suites.

Ongoing work includes storage and supply from stock of furniture and desk components including desk legs, drawers and work surfaces as examples, and also daily and weekly crate delivery.
