Case Study

A call centre renovation was among the first projects we completed for a global electric company. Schneider Electric awarded us with the contract to refurbish and fit out the UK call centre at their head office in Telford.

The call centre is home to 100 helpdesk staff and we were tasked with completing the work with minimum disruption to the busy office. Our crew worked out of hours over 8 weekends  as well ad week nights to complete the renovations as the call centre was in action five days a week. The project took six weeks to complete.

Among the work carried out was the installation of two new management offices, a large meeting room and a breakout area for staff including a fully fitted kitchenette and seating area. We also installed a new suspended ceiling and lighting throughout and provided new furniture including desks, chairs and storage as well as coordinating new air conditioning, electrics. Throughout the project we also installed new carpets and vinyl flooring. WorkBox also supplied the environmental disposal of the old furniture, which was recycled.

WorkBox director, Stuart Thacker, said: “We are very honoured to have developed a close working relationship with such a prestigious company and pleased to provide our ongoing services to Schneider Electric. This was a large, and at times tricky, project which we managed to complete with minimum disruption to the staff working in the call centre.”

Schneider Electric SE is a French multinational corporation that specialises in electricity distribution, automation management and produces energy management installation components.
