Specialist office designs call for specialist furniture solutions and the multi-environment fit-out for The B:HIVE at Smales Farm was no exception.Vidak, a solutions-focussed, New Zealand systems furniture company, was a key partner for the versatile office-leasing development.
Solutions director Gareth Brown says early engagement is critical on projects of this nature, and Vidak has a track record to prove this.
“Our relationship with Smales Farm started back in 2014 when David Smale contacted us about a pilot site they were putting together to test the co-working concept they were embarking on.
“We approached the project collaboratively by listening to how The B:HIVE project team and BVN and Jasmax needed the space to perform and look.
”Whatever was provided had to be as versatile and flexible as the ground-breaking office-leasing arrangements offered by The B:HIVE. So when it came to the private meeting and workspaces space required, Vidak had just the solution with the Urban Pod system from their partner Boss Design (UK).“
Urban Pods are fully enclosed, 37dB acoustically rated meeting and work spaces, designed as nonpermanent structures. They can be repositioned around the offices at short notice and don’t require the same consents as traditional built rooms.
”Urban Pods are offered in four sizes – from a single, quiet pod up to a 6-to-8 seat meeting room. They come with lighting, airflow, power and data points, as well as a fire safety mechanism to work with building safety services. Add-on options include user-controlled mood lighting, glass boards, exterior cladding, custom fabric and custom powdercoating.
