Green Policy

Here at Space Planning UK our aim is to make your space work for you. Rather than trying to sell you as much furniture as possible, if we can re-use your existing furniture, which will save you both time and money, then we will. These days unfortunately there is very little value to second hand office furniture, which means that often companies will scrap existing furniture, but this often isn’t necessary.

Through using our space planning service we can show you how to utilise your existing furniture in the most space effective way, thus removing the need to throw away your existing furniture. This not only saves you cash, but also saves materials used for production of new furniture, the energy required to manufacture it, and the pollution caused by transporting it. Even if your existing furniture isn’t in perfect condition there are still options open to you, such as replacing worktops, or re-using corner desks, but with under desk rather than desk high pedestal drawer units. This can often free up additional space within your office without the need to discard existing furniture.

Once we have surveyed your existing layout we work with a CAD system and produce all our plans electronically; these are then emailed to you in your preferred format. Even our invoices are emailed to ensure minimum paper consumption and environmental impact. However should you want to buy new furniture we can recommend companies to you and even recommend companies that will take away your old furniture so that it is re-used or recycled rather than going to waste.

We are able to plan your offices with maximum efficiency to ensure that you are able to get the most from your space, thereby reducing the requirement for office space, which in turn not only reduces your costs, but also your energy usage.

If you’d like to know more about how Space Planning UK can help make your office more efficient and improve your carbon footprint give us a call; our clients even include the Carbon Trust and we’d be happy to help you make your office a greener place to work.
