Based in Leicester, C3 Construction Ltd has grown to become one of the leading Groundwork and Civil Engineering Contractors in the Midlands. Building a solid reputation within the industry, C3 Construction provides groundworks and infrastructure for National House Builders and Commercial Clients. Due to expansion, C3 were moving to a new site at Meridian Business Park.

C3 were very much conscious of the overall image their new offices were to portray and after careful consideration of various office furniture ranges, they opted for Sven Christiansen’s X-Range. They used X-Range bench desking for the majority of the fit-out using banks of 4 and 6 desks and some individual workstations – still in the same bench style. They opted for a combination of white tops with slate rectangular leg frames to give a crisp, clean finish but with a sturdy ‘construction-like’ edge. The bench desks had fixed tops and a central back scallop for cable management. Some of the banks had Perspex desk mounted screens in a polar white finish. Individual offices were also fitted out in Sven Christiansen’s X-Range, generally comprising corner desks and complementary double door storage in various heights and widths.

``Working with the LOF team was a pleasure from start to finish, I would highly recommend them to anyone looking for new office furniture and/or office partitioning``

Joel Denham, Director, C3 Construction Ltd

The chairs selected were Ocee Design’s mesh back Goal chairs in Camira Craggan fabric. The mesh back version of the Goal chair has only been introduced into the “Goal family” within the last year and it has proven to be extremely popular. We arranged some sample chairs for C3 to try. The Goal mesh back chairs are very reasonably priced and C3 found them to be the most comfortable and fit for purpose compared to more expensive models – and we have to say we agreed with them! Ocee Design Goal chairs are guaranteed for five years and C3 had them upholstered in Camira Craggan wool fabric, which has a chunky weave and a highlighting shade (orange in this case).

To finish off the office furniture fit-out, C3 Construction had a striking boardroom with full height glazed partitioning to one wall (also installed by us). They were after something clean looking and to seat 10 people. A rectangular Ambus boardroom table was selected on a box base in a white finish to complement the rest of the office furniture.

Now complete, C3 Constructions offices really have the ‘wow’ factor, with carefully selected wall coverings finishing the overall look, the offices are simple and crisp yet practical and functional.
