No Soft Approach From Komfort For New Softcat HQ
Komfort’s partitioning offering has been used to create a unique office environment for an expanding IT service supplier.
SoftCat, based in Marlow, offer a range of IT service solutions to a host of different sectors. Having purchased new HQ premises they wanted to refurbish it to a high standard that reflected their brand values and internal goals. Spread over three floors the 26,600 sq ft of space required several bespoke elements involving glass partitioning and manifestation.
Advanced Interior Solutions were brought in for the fit out work, and they proceeded to specify Komfort’s products knowing they could deliver both tailored solutions and quality of products. The largest element to the project was the creation of a meeting space with a faceted curved wall. This was constructed using Komfire solid elements to create a 600mm thick wall with a large opening and curved ends. Within the opening a faceted single glazed partition was installed with curved abutments.
In addition to the Komfire 75 and 100 glass partitions used for several private meeting spaces, Komfort also supplied Walnut veneered and white laminate faced doors and Polar single glazing with glass doors, a sliding glass door was also installed which marked the entrance to an informal meeting space. The considered and clever use of partitioning across the different levels helped SoftCat to achieve the important ‘wow’ factor for both staff and visitors.
Tim Horrocks, Key Account Manager at Komfort said: “The nature of SoftCat’s business required the creation of an office space that really stood out, by using Komfort’s partitioning to produce complex bespoke elements such as the curved wall, the company has been able to deliver a space that promotes better working amongst staff and really represents their growing business.”
