Throughout Autumn the CAMA Workspace team have been busy supporting our customers with workspace redesign. We’ve been helping our clients clear office space to enable workers to safely return.
A recent Wired article, ‘How companies should be redesigning offices for a post-pandemic world’, illustrates how the post-Covid office will be the opposite of open and free-flowing. It will offer isolation … and, in a sharp reversal of prevailing trends, assigned spaces to each employee. The author, Nick Compton, wrote:
“Many companies’ first response to social distancing requirements was to order Plexiglas screens and hand sanitiser … This, though, is clearly not a particularly sustainable or design-conscious way of tackling the problem”
Many of our clients are forward-thinkers, who have been spending time on workspace redesign in their offices, particularly communal areas, to ensure their teams have a sustainably safe working environment. Our services are now needed more than ever.
How can CAMA software help with workspace redesign logistics and storage?
The CAMA Workspace team are currently working with a prestigious tech company to assist with their office redesign. The CAMA team has collected and stored the furniture from their four different sites across London.
All our client’s breakout furniture, and the majority of their operator chairs, were collected for storage and possible reuse. This was to allow floors and offices to be reopened for limited numbers of staff to return to the workplace.
During the removal, one of the offices still contained a high number of personal items and files on people’s desks. We dealt with this sensitively but also securely – to ensure the office could reopen quickly, but individual’s possessions were not mislaid.
The CAMA workspace team packed everything securely and safely. The team made sure each item was photographed and logged into our online asset management software. This has enabled our client to recall individual boxes back, when staff members request their items.
Richard Wootton, Project Manager at CAMA Workspace explains: “The beauty of this integrated service is that all items can be organised remotely through our cloud based asset management software, from collection to delivery and when items are no longer needed, through to our dedicated sustainability service.
The CAMA team are keen for items not to remain in storage indefinitely – we discuss exit strategy and plans with clients when items come to us. What can be reused, shared or donated to the community? It’s important that when companies are redesigning their workspace they have in mind where they would like unwanted furniture to end up”
We have put together a video to show how our asset management software can help with your removal, reuse and recycling needs. Take a look:
