Amos Beech have supplied us with office furniture and assisted with office moves and fit-out requirements in our previous premises for over 10 years. When our lease expired on the premises, we engaged with them and others on a competitive basis to select a supplier who could look after the entire process of an office design, build and move that also included an R&D Design lab requirement too.

Moving offices

Amos Beech consistently delivered in terms of gaining an understanding of the way we work and how to deliver a built environment that accurately reflected our needs. By engaging with our various heads of departments and the senior management team they were able to create both excitement and confidence that their vision for us was what we wanted and needed.

The competitive process ran its course and Amos Beech were duly appointed.  Due to a protracted procurement process, the build program was truncated as our exit from our existing premises was not going to change.  It is fair to say that the team at Amos Beech rose to the challenge and delivered on their promises. 

Office design and fit-out

Amos Beech provided both the interior fit-out and all furniture items and handled a complex move of our testing/lab equipment as well as all our office IT and personal effects from the old offices to the new.

We are now extremely proud owners of a wonderful facility that includes so many different types of space which staff are both using and giving highly positive feedback on.  The labs, dark rooms and specialist equipment rooms more than meet our requirements and their design is such that as our needs change we will be able to make adjustments to them as necessary.

Visitors to the new office are more than impressed as we are now able to visibly demonstrate our global standing in the microelectronics industry to our customers and helping to attract top talent to join our team.

A close working relationship with high levels of trust is crucial to the success of a project like this and we have no hesitation in recommending the team at Amos Beech to potential clients for their integrity, commitment and professional abilities.

Amos Beech were initially approached by Teleperformance in August 2013 to carry out occupancy studies for a potential new call centre in the centre of Glasgow. They carried out a full site survey and prepared plans showing us how we could accommodate up to 600 staff over 3 floors of office space. This also included discussions with building control around issues such as occupancy levels, fire escape routes, air conditioning upgrades data and electrical design and on site emergency generator provision.

The project was given sign off in April 2015 and Amos Beech were given the role of Main Contractor to deliver the entire works package and furniture so that we could take occupancy in August/September 2015.

Working to a very tight timeline, Roy James headed up the project team and provided fortnightly site update meetings both on site and via teleconference. The Amos Beech team provided a full time Site Manager who inducted all contractors and maintained a 100% heath and safety record. Amos Beech were also responsible for planning, liaising and working with our M&E contractors to ensure the project plan ran smoothly and on time.

The building we occupy has other tenants and at all times Amos Beech were exemplary in their respect for both the building and our neighbours.

The project was handed over to us on the date requested and on budget. Whilst there was some snagging, this was dealt with promptly by Roy and his team and we have now been in our new call centre for 12 months and would be very happy to recommend Amos Beech tom other companies looking for similar services.

Just a note to say…

The HB Task Chair, which you have delivered and configured to my height, weight and posture has made an immediate difference in a number of ways. The arm rest heights are just right. The dynamic tilt movement adapts to my sitting position, which makes both my legs and my lower back feel much more comfortable.

In the previous standard office chair, I could not sit for long (1 hour maximum) before feeling very restless and uncomfortable. Whereas now, I can sit without getting distracted and needing to constantly shift around. What a difference to my posture, my lower back pain and my concentration level!

I had been suffering from back-related pains for the best part of two months. I have now been using a BMA chair for a month and I am delighted to say that these disappeared almost immediately and have not recurred.

Thank you for your assistance and the service your company provided, which was excellent.
