“InteriorsTeam were fantastic and worked around us, undertaking the installations department by department, often at weekends to minimise disruption. Their team was in each weekend at one point reconfiguring our desks and their electrical components.

It was important to us that InteriorsTeam were able to propose a solution to accommodate any urgent requirements we had in line with our rapid growth. The team worked closely with us and now hold entry level desks in their component parts at their distribution centres near to our sites for call off when required. Their stock-holding solution means they’re exceptionally responsive and can meet our last minute demands as well as matching the price, service and quality expectations of the business. The work undertaken so far is of high value; worth approximately £1million over two years.  InteriorsTeam carried off these large-scale projects impeccably. We have a separate arrangement for CAD through a firm of architects and InteriorsTeam work very well with them collaboratively. They are great team players.

The fitting and installation team are a credit to InteriorsTeam. Nothing is ever too much trouble and they work around us. I’d certainly recommend them to anybody undertaking a similar project.”

– Facilities Team Manager, Baillie Gifford

The Challenge

Baillie Gifford enlisted the help of InteriorsTeam to supply furniture that was in keeping with their corporate image: one of professionalism, of quality and of prestige. Their existing desking was quite traditional in appearance, with wooden pedestal desks which were in need of a modern twist. A company growing exponentially, it was important that InteriorsTeam could meet the growing demands of Baillie Gifford as they continue to evolve, providing ad hoc items when required.

With two offices in Edinburgh and a further office in London, our task was clear and specific to meet the demands of their stock market activity, often requiring three screens per desk. InteriorsTeam were required to provide fully loaded desks with built-in CPU holders housed underneath with two tool rail mounted monitor arms which could support the weight of their large screens.
