Verco Office Furniture

Verco executive furniture to Morrisons' HQ

Executive suites, board and meeting rooms feature elements from Verco's Corniche furniture range within a major relocation of 1400 personnel from three regional facilities to brand new, purpose-built headquarters in Bradford for UK supermarket company Morrisons.

The project by Salford-based TSK Group satisfies the brief to "create a workplace that would help to establish a more positive, productive and collaborative working culture".

"The TSK Group helped us to unlock the potential of the interior environment, ensuring the project was not only an investment in property but also in our workforce and organisation as a whole," says Morrisons property director, Roger Owen.

Verco furniture - Morrisons

Working with the project architect, TSK evolved a light and open workspace with a broad spectrum of work settings with the minimum of physical boundaries and ample breakout areas to stimulate interaction between staff working communally for the first time.

TSK Group provided a full interior design and construction service to Morrisons. It not only procured all furniture to site, but also established and implemented a furniture recycling strategy and, where appropriate, utilised furniture from sites being vacated.

In addition, TSK sourced and installed the latest audio-visual conferencing technology to meeting rooms, which, together with management suites and boardroom, are complemented by the use of Corniche board and meeting tables.

Morrisons were attracted to elegance and quality inherent in Corniche, a long-established and revised design brand within the Verco programme, with complementary desking and storage designs also available.

TSK Group specified conference tables in real oak veneer for six office suites and four meeting rooms in the management floors at Morrisons' headquarters.

Corniche comes in a choice of three veneers (Oak, Cherry and Maple) with a bespoke staining service also available.

A choice of 1220 diameter circular, and 2.5m, 3.5m and 4m 'D' End shaped conference tables can be accommodated within any meeting environment, complemented by an offer of circular, square and rectangular coffee tables.

Table tops and panel legs are 40mm thick with solid wood lippings all round and with Bull nose profiles on all edges.

TSK Group director Andy Burke sees a good fit between Corniche and the planning brief for Morrisons.

"The building benefits from being both a physical manifestation of the brand ideals of the company whilst facilitating everyday activities and supporting more efficient and productive ways of working," he says.
