News: Staverton's desk job at Shoosmiths


Staverton, a manufacturer of contemporary office furniture, has delivered 250 desks for a high profile office project in Birmingham.

Previously known as Logic Office Group, the firm's manufacturing base is at a 35,000 sq ft factory in Hellaby in Rotherham. and more than 250 Staverton LT desks have been installed at legal firm, Shoosmiths' new offices.

Shoosmiths provides lawyers to leading corporate names, property developers and some of the UK's largest banks. The firm recently moved into a new 40,000 sq ft open plan office at 2 Colmore Square, Birmingham's largest floor plate, to better accommodate its business and prepare for future growth.

Providing accommodation for more than 180 legal advisors and support staff, the firm chose to use interior design and office furniture to tell the story of its brand.

Staverton workstations were chosen following a vigorous piloting procedure against a global manufacturer, which saw furniture installed in Shoosmiths former Birmingham office for evaluation by the team. Staverton desks were found to offer greater flexibility, detail and personalisation.

Beckie Fenner-Evans who recently joined the new graduate programme at Staverton, said: "As a UK manufacturer of office furniture, we have always designed to meet clients' specific needs. If our clients want desktops in a particular colour, legs with a certain finish, a new degree of functionality such as integrated data and power or a new shape to maximise space – that's what we will do.

"We changed the finish of the desk leg to white so that the 250 desks would complement the clean design aesthetic of the open plan office and let other aspects of the interior, such as the meeting room manifestations, tell the Shoosmiths brand story.

"Above and beyond our supply of desks, the innovative office furniture used throughout this project gives them an additional point of difference in a competitive market.

"Shoosmiths' Birmingham office is perhaps not what you'd expect of a law firm. There is no doubt that office furniture has helped to tell their story."

The project follows on from a £1.2m contract with The Co-operative involving the manufacture of 2,800 workstations for the group's new 400,000 sq ft head office in Manchester.
