“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.”
It is always a pleasure to work with Bureau, who manage to source beautiful, sustainable furniture, in-keeping with our brand and the features of the building and location. At 103 Colmore Row and eighteen, we particularly appreciated the dedication to sourcing high quality and distinct pieces reflective of the workspace and club space products.””
“The challenge given to Bureau was to source local, keep sustainability at the fore and celebrate our brand. They delivered on all those aspects with form and function. We are delighted with the result.”
“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”
Having overseen previous office relocations, I was under no illusions as to the difficulties involved. Bureau’s office move team provided a first-class service taking care of every aspect of the relocation. Their detailed planning and flexibility meant that the removal was completed with minimum fuss. We would certainly use them again.”
“It was a great experience working with Alex and the team from Bureau again. This project was quite complex with many different spaces all needing different furniture solutions. Bureau understood the brief and delivered. We are delighted with the spaces that they have helped create.”
“As our Clockwise space has evolved and adapted to meet the needs of our clients, so too has the furniture in the space. Creating beautiful breakout zone, meeting areas and designated hot desking, our furniture has stood the test of time. Bureau were sympathetic to the history and character of the building in their selection of the furniture, whilst also meeting the Clockwise criteria. The team have been helpful and friendly throughout the process and continue to do so as part of their aftercare.”
“Supporting us to achieve a great result for our client, Bureau provided excellent advice on the best possible solutions. Recommending furniture and finishes that would be most attractive to prospective tenants, they helped us achieve a look and feel that maximises the potential of the space.”
“It is always fantastic to work with Bureau, who manage to source beautiful, sustainable furniture, in-keeping with our brand and the features of the building. At Foundry, we particularly appreciated the dedication to sourcing refurbished and classic pre-loved furniture — all of which positively contributed towards our application for the coveted SKA gold rating for sustainable design.”
“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”
“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”
“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.”
“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.”
“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”
“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 Bureau team did a fantastic job from the very first meeting and visits to showrooms all the way through to the furniture installation — they were on hand to assist and advise. The team’s knowledge and expertise was invaluable. The new office space delivers everything we had hoped to achieve in the new environment, flexible meeting spaces, a permanent and hot desk hybrid environment and most importantly creating a more collaborative space for all teams across the business to work much closer together.”
“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.”
“Jamie and Cameron at Bureau are absolute design geeks. There are so many products and new brands available that it is impossible for us designers to keep up. Bureau understood our brief and helped to source furniture which suited the aesthetic, purpose and budget, met the environmental agenda and which the client loves.”
The Bureau team did a brilliant job to keep us up to speed with any availability changes and highlighted potential issues in advance, suggesting alternatives that would meet the client’s deadline.””
