CLIENT: Student Awards Agency for Scotland LOCATION: Edinburgh SIZE: Relocation for 300 staff PROJECT VALUE: £300,000.00 (Approx.) LENGTH OF PROJECT: Three phases over one month COMPLETION DATE: December 2014 PROJECT LEADS: Jemma Ryan WE SUPPLIED: Pico desking with pedestals and plexiglass screens. Storage included Freestor lockers and tambours, as well as racking. V-style flip-top tables were also supplied, as was an executive range of furniture for managers. A range of breakout, meeting and task seating were supplied with coffee tables.





Flexiform tendered for the relocation and installation of furniture for 300 SAAS staff. The staff needed relocating from Gyleview House, South Gyle, Edinburgh to Saughton House, Broomhouse Road, Edinburgh, over the course of over three weekends. SAAS required furniture for open plan office areas, meeting rooms, mail rooms, receptions, manager offices, executive offices, and breakout spaces. To win the project, Flexiform went through various processes, including presentations and showroom, visits to discuss and illustrate our service offering. Upon winning the project, Flexiform were given the colour tones of the carpet, so we could then match this with the colour scheme for the selected furniture. We then produced this for all products throughout the building. This led to various bespoke products been manufactured for SAAS.


Flexiform installed a range of furniture including Pico back-to-back desks in clusters of four, six and eight. The furniture Flexiform manufactured and installed adapted to the different departments, for example, within high noise areas screens were provided to section off each area and act as an acoustic barrier. Different departments had varying storage solutions at the end of the back-to-back desks to suit their needs, but the contemporary bright design and feel was maintained throughout. Flexiform’s bespoke items for Student Awards Agency For Scotland included lockers and mail room storage. This involved altering existing products to suit SAAS’ needs, including nonstandard paint runs and specially-fitted racking. We pride ourselves on the ability to create bespoke furniture to fulfill each client’s different needs.
