It was great to grow our commercial fit out portfolio at Duncombe School, where we asked to create a new look for its high-traffic reception and administration office. The challenge here was to implement a layout design that accommodated a number of staff in a tight space, and also create a new filing system that streamlined the huge piles of paperwork on work surfaces and improve
productivity as a by product of smart design. Our main focus was on storage and to ensure the very best solutions were proposed, MPL undertook a storage audit - a useful process for any paperwork-heavy workplace. As a result, our team designed floor-to-ceiling bespoke storage units on hidden catches, installed a bespoke pigeon hole unit and configured the internal walls
to accommodate tailor-made items of storage. This commercial fit out also included new office desks, electrics and a new system to tidy up all loose cables. Cosmetically, MPL refreshed the existing timber floor by stripping it back and revarnishing it, and customised the walls with digital prints of pupils.
