New brochure for CHWorkspace

CHWorkspace is  very pleased to announce that our new brochure, the 2012 edition, has just come off the press and we are distributing copies to our valued customers.

If for some reason we have missed you, then please get in touch and we will post you a copy by return.

The 2012 brochure is mainly a consolidation of the existing ranges, although it has to be said that there are at least 10 new ranges of office furniture which have been added to our portfolio.

In addition we have increased our number of stocked ranges of meeting and training tables, along with some very interesting boardroom tables.

We intend to publish these changes and the new additions in greater detail in due course but overall we are very pleased with the design, feel and usability of the new catalogue.

One of the main changes which you will immediately notice is that the prices and technical description of each product is now incorporated into the main brochure. This is how it used to be, but we changed a few years ago and had a separate technical data and price list.   Most of our customers have commented that this was not an improvement so we have gone back to what suits our customers best.

All of the other benefits which we have always offered are still there though. Competitive pricing, free space planning, fast delivery, comprehensive range of products to suit all offices and businesses.

Despite the continuing recession and general decline in business, we are still looking after our existing customers and indeed attracting quite a number of new customers.

We feel that our new brochure reflects the current market, in that in general the product range is geared to more everyday office furniture requirements, rather than exclusive boardrooms or executive office suites.

Having said that, most of the products which were in our old brochure are still available from stock, if you were looking for something a little bit special then you can still use the old brochure or if you do not have one, let us know and we can send you one.  We also have the brochure available in PDF version and are working on an on line “flip page” version which you can view on your PC, or even your PDA or smartphone, if you are that inclined.

So thanks to all our existing customers for the continued support and we hope to offer you the same high quality profession service we have always offered.

And we look forward to offering our new customers the same service

Pure office furniture

Pure is  new range of office desks which we now hold in stock for immediate dispatch.

It compliments our other ranges of office desks by being elegant, simple and stylish.

The tapered leg frames, which are available in a cool white finish as well as the standard aluminium finish, add style to any office , at a price which is comparable to many budget office desking ranges.

The Pure office furniture range is available with a variety of top finishes, from  a dark cinnamon walnut to snow white, to match the desk frames.

There is even a height adjustable frame option in the Pure range, which caters for tall staff.

In addition to the rectangular and radial desks offered in this range, there are also meeting ends, meeting tables, and even a barrel shaped boardroom table.  Our standard range of desk high and under desk mobile pedestals also compliments this range, especially as we now have white finished mobile pedestals as a standard stocked furniture product.

The Pure office desk frame is certainly a break from the traditional look of office desks, and would not look out of place in a designer home or office, especially when finished in white.
As our photographs show, Pure is aptly named, as the desk exudes pure style as well as pure function. Clean lines, no clutter, and a beautifully designed leg base, adds a level of quality and sophistication not often found at this pricing level.

With over 15 shapes and sizes of desk, Pure can solve your small office or study needs, especially when you consider the thousands off complimentary products which are available in our main office  furniture brochure.

As with all of our desking ranges  the whole of the Pure range is available on our Cad system in 2 and 3D format, enabling us to produce stunning 3 D renditions of your new workspace using the Pure Office Furniture range.

So please call us today, and you new Pure furniture could be with you by the weekend

Express Office Line launched

In addition to our main office furniture brochure which details over 30,000 products, all of which are available for delivery and installation within five days we now have a range of products which are held in local stock ready for immediate dispatch.

This range of office furniture includes  panel and I frame desking, desk height and under desk mobile pedestals,  all available in a wide range of desk top finishes  and styles.

The main two ranges are called WALTON and GANTON  and offer a very comprehensive range of desk sizes and shapes.

Both ranges also offer a variety of desk top finishes and well as some optional frame finishes where relevant

The Ganton range is a panel ended system which looks like a  traditional style of office desk, whereas the Walton range is a more contemporary style with I frame of corner legs frames.

Ganton and Walton desks available tomorrow

Although a large amount of our office furniture is available in 5 to 7 days we are still often asked for next day solutions from desperate customers who have left things to the last minute

So, since the beginning of June we have implemented an immediate shipment programme  called our “Express Office Line” and have produced a mini brochure to back it up.

The products in the brochure are held in stock in the Midlands, which means that we can literally deliver and install the office  furniture the next day, if required.

The two main desking ranges, Ganton and Walton, are both available in beech, white, oak, birch, walnut and olive finishes, in a variety of shapes and sizes from the standard rectangular desk to radial,  and even bow fronted executive desks.

Office furniture innovations

Its not often that something comes along in  our  industry that is truly unique and exciting but we think that we have found it.

In reality it is more “office furniture meets technology” than just a different take on an office desk, but nevertheless it is truly groundbreaking and if priced correctly, could be the next big thing to hit offices all over the world.

The Company which came up with it is FG Technology in Northampton, who are a business partner of ours. They have been working  for years on improving  our workspace and have come up with various innovative products and designs in the past.

So what have they come up with this time?

Well,  the picture on the right gives you a clue. By using a remote control unit the CPU at each workstation can be moved to a central location up to 20 metres away.  So all you need at your desk is a small receiver/transmitter unit, which also houses the disk drive, usb points and other connections.

White office desks – the new finish.

Over the last 12 months we have seen an explosion in customers wanting to have their office desk tops finished in white, and also expressing a preference to have white desk frames as well.

Luckily most office furniture manufacturers have risen to the challenge of this new finish and have added white to their standard options list.

 We stock a number of ranges of office furniture which are available in a white finish, from stock, with a white desk frame option available at no additional cost.

These requests for white desks and accessories seems to have originated  in the domestic furniture and kitchen market, where white has become exceedingly and increasingly  popular.
More and more architects and house builders have been incorporating white finishes into their new designs and consumers have wanted to continue their  theme through their home furniture and then through to their office desks and storage units.

CHW sponsors Danny Buchan for 2011

Once again CHW( office furniture) is proud to be one of  Danny Buchans private sponsors for 2011.
Some of you may know that last year we also sponsored Danny who was riding in the British Superstock 600 class – a support class to the British Superbikes championship.

In 2010, Danny Buchan, as a rookie in this class, finished the season with an overall 3rd place, which, to be honest, could have been a first, had it not been for a cruel and unfortunate  engine misfire in the last race or the season at Oulton Park.

Still, a third place in the championship in a rookie year is a major achievement and has given  him the opportunity to ride in the Superstock 1000 class for 2011.

This year ( as last year) he will be riding for the MSS Colchester Kawasaki team, on the latest incarnation of the ZX10, which by all accounts is a state of the art machine, bristling with the most up to date cutting edge technology.

Are office desks getting smaller

We have noticed over the last few years that we have been using much smaller office desks in our CAD designs than we used to.

We think that the main reason is that more is expected from the average workspace. It has to work harder for its cost so  more workstations are specified in the brief.

Also more has to be crammed into the working area.  15 years ago break-out areas had not been heard off, and if staff wanted  to relax they used the canteen area if there was one, or just went down the road to a café or pub.

The second reason is really to do with technology and how this has changed the way we work. Nowadays most of our work can be done on a computer in front of a screen or even a laptop.
