Office Refurb for Strand Hardware

Strand Hardware has given its company headquarters a radical make over – improving its energy efficiency, work space and creating a welcoming new hi-tech reception.

It has used products from many of its suppliers and customers for the project including new windows, fire doors, electricals, plumbing, furniture, decoration, carpeting and signage, along with some of its own ironmongery products.

The refurb in the second change project to take place at Strand Hardware in recent months and follows a review and upgrade of its warehousing processes undertaken with WMG (Warwick Manufacturing Group).

It has resulted in a more modern, open plan work space for its expanding team – encouraging greater team synergy and literally breaking down walls to silo working which had been enforced by the old layout.

Strand has occupied the premises on the Premier Business Park, in Walsall, since the company was founded more than 30 years ago and a little modernisation has been beneficial.

Managing Director Steve Marshall said:
“Although Strand’s offices were perfectly functional, they were looking a little dated and our work with WMG gave us the impetus to extend our programme of improvements. 
“Not only will it enhance working conditions for the Strand Hardware team but also convey a better image of who we are and what we are about to visiting business associates.

“Efficiency has underpinned all our recent changes. This includes energy efficiency and eco-saving measures such as the introduction of natural ventilation, insulation and energy-saving devices”.

Shared facilities including board room, kitchen and bathrooms have been included in the make-over and equipment upgraded. Staff have also benefitted from ergonomically designed furniture and layout.
Its reception has been reconfigured to make it lighter and more airy. 

It also features digital displays to welcome visitors and showcase Strand’s extensive product range.

A key driver in the process has been digitisation – reducing paper-based processes and transferring its traditional filing system to a cloud based environment.

The company is planning an open day for company contacts and has invited Mayor of Walsall to oversee a rededication ceremony.
