Thistle had previously completed a number of fit out projects for the client and were the first port of call when it came to maximising the storage capacity in one of its main offices.
Thistle’s interior fit out team met with the client to survey the area and discuss the materials being stored before proposing the existing 4 drawer filing cabinets were replaced with integrated storage walls.
Thistle used its experience in interior fit outs to use the storage walls to effectively create a partition by positioning them in the centre of the office, which not only improved the office space but also enhanced the acoustics.
The bespoke storage wall was specifically designed to accommodate their requirements including files, archive boxes, drop files and general office supplies. They even incorporated electrical works to allow printers to be stored out of sight.
Thistle Systems’ Managing Director, Mike Cairns, explained: “Storage walls are replacing the traditional filing cabinet as the essential part of any modern office. As well as offering unrivalled storage capacity within a very small footprint, they can be customised to incorporate virtually any aspect of a modern office from AV technology to presentation cases.”
He continued, “And as storage walls can be designed as floor to ceiling fixtures, they can also be used to create highly effective partitions with storage to one or both sides. This presents major opportunities for clients looking to create additional storage within the minimum floor space.”
