In the Press – Premier Construction August 2021

By | Uncategorized | No Comments

Established in 2007 Showcase Interiors is an award-winning independent furniture dealer, providing consultancy, procurement and installation services to all market sectors and businesses of various shapes and sizes.  As an independent furniture dealer, we have no contractual ties to any one manufacture which means we can work in the best interest of the design team and our clients.  We provide impartial and unbiased advice recommending products from a wide range of suppliers based on our client’s business objectives and their criteria for function, design and budget.

We work closely with a wide range of global brands from different sectors and regions across the private sector, automotive sector, public sector and within higher education. Recently we have delivered some outstanding projects for a Global Law Firm, an International Asset Management Company and a Global Finance service business.

At Showcase we pride ourselves in our differentiating performance factors, our people and our project delivery process. A significant number of global organisations and professional teams have retained or referred Showcase to work on further major projects.

Showcase is the U.K market leader in providing procurement services in the U.K.  We have an unbeatable track record of delivering complex procurement projects to global organisations, on time and within budget, up to the value of £25m. We see our retained and referral rates as testament to the quality of our people, the robustness of our process and that we deliver on our promise to deliver projects on time, snag free and within budget.

Our people are unique to Showcase and our team is made up of knowledgeable and experienced team members that fully understand their responsibilities and take full ownership for our scope of works.

At Showcase we see our role: to advise, to provide independent and objective advice and to facilitate a decision making process that is backed up with solid and reliable information that allows the client to make informed decisions. Every project is delivered using the same robust four stage delivery process that is designed to manage risk out of the project.

Over the past 30 years we have built excellent relationships with leading manufacturers and suppliers throughout Europe. It is this combination of purchasing power and our knowledge of the furniture market that provides our clients with the right furniture solutions for the best available cost.

Showcase was recently taken on board to work with Ninety One to provide consultative services on furniture selection, procurement, delivery and installation. We provided the client with a portfolio of product options that met the brief, budget and program, as well as arranged showroom visits and furniture pilots for the client to evaluate the product options in person. Showcase ran a two stage procurement process and provided a full management and supervision team to oversee delivery, interfaces with direct trades and installation to a successful “Go-Live” date.

For the project Showcase worked alongside the existing project team to provide a full service across the following phases:

  • Briefing / Selection.
  • Procurement (Two stages).
  • Storage services due to COVID19 delays.
  • Delivery and Installation.
  • Post-Project Activities.

The project itself was a very unique experience; working on a brand new building with a company that wanted to take inspiration from its South African roots and endorse this into its design was dramatically inspiring.

Working on a fantastic project with such a good feeling amongst a mix of consultants and the client team made it an absolute pleasure. At Showcase we feel privileged to have been included in such a harmonious team and give special thanks to Jane Goodbody and Tahera Hammond.

Planning A Safe Return To Work For Your Staff

By | Uncategorized | No Comments

Like many employers I’m sure you are thinking about how to plan for your businesses return to work, how this might look, and how best to manage this.

A number of employees will want to continue working from home, others will seek the freedom and flexibility to work wherever and opt for hybrid working, and there will be those that are just desperate to get back to the office.

Keeping your staff safe – As an employer you have the same health and safety responsibilities for employees working from home as for any other employees. If you have staff working at home, you must still manage the risks to their health from display screen, task chairs and other equipment (DSE).

At Showcase Interiors we’re supporting businesses who are embracing flexible working and providing those working from home not only with the tools to do the job but also the right furniture ensuring they are DSE compliant, protecting the wellbeing of their staff.

Showcase Interiors have been working with some of its key clients and have developed a new home-working portal where staff can order office furniture in a timely and GDPR compliant way. Whether it’s a task chair, a sit & stand desk, or a piece of ergonomic furniture or equipment.

Furniture can be delivered straight to your employees home enabling them to work comfortably and safely, taking away the hassle of distribution making it simple and stress free for the client.

Showcase has supplied over 7,000 task chairs for one of its clients alone, home-working portals are a great tool and a business necessity for the future.

If your business needs help finding the right solutions to make your work place safer contact the team today sales@showcase-interiors.co.uk

Showcase End of Year Conference 2019

On Friday the 6th December Showcase held their End of Year Company Conference at the stunning manor house Latimer Estate in Chesham.

With the business growing from strength to strength, and over 20 new starters joining this year the senior management team shared the years successes & learning’s, as well as the businesses objectives and strategies for 2020.

With not a dull slide in sight, it was a fun, informative and interactive day for all.

This year Showcase was torn between 3 deserving charities so decided to challenge the team to support them all.

The team took part in an F1 challenge where they had to design, build and then race their own F1 car.  Formula 1 is about more than just the cars though; the Showcase teams needed to also design a brand for their team. Team hats, overalls and the car had to be branded with their logo, sponsors and chosen charity, finally pitch to the wider team giving their rationale.

Best car design, best team players, best uniform, best values demonstrated and fastest team all held cash prices for 1st, 2nd and 3rd position.  The winning team for each got to choose which charity they wanted to support. The first being Crisis and the second being funding for a nurse for Little Haven Hospice.

In total the teams raised £1,650 for Crisis and £2,850 for Little Haven Hospice as well as packed 100 rucksacks for FOELH ‘Friends of Essex & London Homeless’

Showcase Directors Emma & Nigel Boreham were not surprised to see the whole business pull together and work as a team, and of course have fun every step of the way, values they are proud to see in each and every one of their employees.

On the 7th December Showcase held their Annual company conference at the Mondrian Hotel in Southwark London.

Now with 58 employees the senior management team shared the years successes & leanings, as well as the businesses objectives for 2019.

With not a dull slide in sight, it was a fun, and interactive day for all.

In the afternoon in true Showcase fashion everyone took part in a heartfelt charity team build.

In teams our creative bunch had to design and make a festive sack, filling it with age & gender specific Christmas gifts following a list of criteria & challenges along the way!

Each team was whisked off to the oldest and largest toy shop in the world ‘Hamleys’ where they returned with 100’s of wonderful gifts guaranteed to make any child smile.

All the beautiful sacks were filled with presents, each for an under privileged child who otherwise wouldn’t receive a gift this Christmas.

Showcase worked closely with its local charities, and The Salvation Army in Chelmsford to help make Christmas wishes come true.

Showcase Directors Emma & Nigel Boreham were incredibly proud to see their team work so hard to achieve this, another great day.
