“Bureau helped us every step of the way, they are inspiring and customer-focused, and their on-site set-up team were brilliant — approachable and resourceful.”
“We are pleased with the results that Bureau were able to produce for our plug and play office suite. They performed as expected and delivered a quality product. Their focus on the customer was second to none”
“This is the third time we have worked with Bureau to deliver an x+why building – it made absolute sense to get them involved again. Bureau always understands the brief we set and are efficient in offering up options that work with the aesthetic, budget and lead times. They have been great at sourcing items that meet the project’s sustainability requirements. It is always a smooth process, from selection through to delivery and installation on site, with any issues dealt with effectively and professionally”
“Bureau know how to get maximum benefit from the budget and elevate the interior design with a skilfully curated range of furniture. Having worked with Clockwise previously on our Glasgow co-working space, they understood our requirements for brand consistency whilst also considering new products that enhance the River House space.”
“From our first meeting Bureau was able to recommend the best type of furniture meeting both of our needs. To match the style of our office and to create vibrant/​cool spaces for our superstar team. We can truly say that this has been achieved! Their friendliness, efficiency, design expertise and approachability made things move fast and at ease and took all the stress away of moving office. Thank you!”
“Bureau delivered brilliantly on every aspect of this project, from sourcing the right furniture pieces, helping create bespoke items and project managing the installation. Alex’s extensive product knowledge and positive attitude makes working with Bureau easy.”
“Key to the success of the spaces at 100 Bishopsgate was selecting furniture pieces that would strike a balance of feeling suitable for a professional office environment, whilst also feeling relaxed and domestic. Squire & Partners’ collaboration with Bureau on product selection, as well as fabrics and finishes played a significant role in achieving this.”
“Bureau translated our brief brilliantly, and worked well in partnership with our architect. They also worked to an incredibly tight program, and were a delight to deal with”
“We’re very happy with how the space has come together. The Bureau team have been brilliant in accommodating us throughout the project and have continued to be on hand since we’ve moved in.”
“Supporting our vision for long term growth, Bureau worked closely with the designer and client team to create a multi-purpose space that provides an excellent and flexible learning environment for our students. Installation was carefully managed to avoid disruption and, crucially, to meet our deadline.”
“We thoroughly enjoyed working with Jamie and the Bureau team. They understood our brand and direction from day one and delivered the project successfully keeping to our tight deadline. We’re already planning our next project with them!”
“Bureau successfully provided a honed, eclectic selection of products which complemented the design and supported the requirement for flexibility and sustainability. It’s always a pleasure to work with Alex and the team.”
“Keeping to a tight schedule and within the agreed budget is key to the successful delivery of a project. The expertise and professionalism of Alex and the Bureau team gave us confidence from the very start and they were a pleasure to work with throughout”
“We are delighted with the transformation from an empty shell to a sophisticated and contemporary office space. The interior design reflects many of the components conducive to an uplifting and productive working environment, and this has been achieved through Bureau’s consultative approach.”
“Across the UK we are witnessing the growth of landlord delivered fully fitted” space as office occupiers seek more flexibility and convenience. It has been a pleasure to work with Bureau and the Palm Capital team on this project. The Opus Suite is one of the first fully fitted and high-quality offer in the Edinburgh office market and I look forward to building upon its success at Orchard Brae House”
“From project inception through to completion Bureau were totally engaged in the process and delivered a fantastic job. Help, advice and communication were exemplary, even after lockdown we got the scheme completed…well done Bureau and thank you.”
“Jamie and the team at Bureau were great and easy to work with on this project. They were helpful in providing different furniture options, they understood the aesthetic we were creating and always responded quickly to our queries. They delivered the project on time and have been helpful post installation to iron out any issues”
“The proposal that came back from Bureau was brilliant, because the options provided, delivered on budget management and allowed us to quickly narrow down the direction we wanted to go in.”
“It was a pleasure to work with Jamie and the team on this project. Bureau were a proactive and creative part of the design team”
“N8 Design and Bureau have exceeded our expectations in creating a flexible, practical and sustainable workplace. The team were delighted to move in to the new space and made themselves at home almost immediately.”
“Keeping to the schedule and budget, Bureau delivered carefully curated furniture solutions for our fantastic new Edinburgh office space. We were delighted with the product selection and the high standard of service provided.”
“Once again it was a pleasure to work with Bureau. They were able to furnish The Fulwood to meet our brief that it be in keeping with the x+why brand, whilst also appealing to a slightly more corporate clientele. We love that they are able to source beautiful pieces that still meet our sustainable credentials”
“With such a tight programme to work to, it was vital that Bureau not only sourced furniture pieces which met our lead times, but also that stylistically these pieces worked with our contemporary warehouse concept. As ever, Jamie and the team were able to meet our brief to deliver a product that is unique to its location and completely in keeping with the building.”
