Demonstrating Good Practice

We love wood, it’s a beautiful material. But when we use trees to make furniture we must all ensure that the materials come from a reputable source, so that environmental impact of our usage is properly sustainable. Furniture Contracts are able to provide full certification, having been awarded full FSC® (CoC) status.

What is FSC® chain of custody certification?

FSC chain of custody (CoC) allows credible tracking of FSC material from the forest, through all successive stages of the production process, to committed retailers and consumers. CoC certification is for operations that manufacture, process or trade in timber or non-timber forest products.

CoC certification requires operations to identify the origin of raw materials used in FSC certified products and to keep FSC certified products separate from other products throughout the production process. Only operations with FSC CoC certificate are allowed to label products with the FSC trademarks.

The FSC label provides the link between responsible production and consumption that enables the consumer to make socially and environmentally responsible purchasing decisions.

New Customer Service Centre, London Borough of Hackney

We are currently working on the manufacture of specialist joinery including over 450 door sets for the new Customer Service Centre for the London Borough of Hackney Council Offices. When complete the new building behind the Town Hall will provide a one-stop resource for residents and offices for Council staff.

Designed by award winning Hopkins Partners, the new Customer Services Centre will complement the much-loved 1930s art deco Town Hall and will be the centre-piece of Hackney's central civic campus.

"The investment in the new building will soon reap rewards in the savings we’ll make from consolidating our buildings and resources. It makes financial sense in enabling the Council to operate more efficiently and effectively. Overall, the Council’s strong financial position means we can make this re-investment in services from our capital programme. It won’t add a penny to council tax. And in the longer run better services will give our council tax payers better value for money."

We are on program to complete this project in October 2009. For more information about the new Customer Service Centre see here.

Momentum Pictures, Rosebury Av EC1R

This unusual and highly individual design for a meeting pod was completed as part of a package of bespoke joinery and furniture for marketing services agency, Momentum Pictures. It’s made from curved MDF and covered in vibrant red linoleum, and is one of a number of work space features which helps stimulate creative thought.

Furniture Contracts undertook this eight week project for BW Interiors in January 2009 as part of a new build interior fit-out, which also included a suite of impressive glazed oak meeting room doors, which create a dramatic entrance and exit point.

Curves feature prominently in this interior, and the bar servery unit has a sweeping bulkhead made from MDF with concealed uplighters. The bar is clad with brushed stainless steel, and all the backbar fittings are concealed within back painted glass.
