Pearson Anderson invited us to their new offices at Equinox House, Burleys Way in the centre of Leicester back in May 2014. Pearson Anderson had recently taken over the ground floor offices which as we stood in there, was an empty shell. They were relocating from their City Centre location on Rutland Street due to expansion and they needed to fit 50+ workstations plus individual offices, training rooms, boardroom and storage space within their new four walls.

Pearson Anderson is a Premier provider for Local and National solutions offering a range of recruitment services from Temporary to Permanent. Operating Nationwide they provide solutions from Executive search, Pure search and Database recruitment services. They have focused on establishing and maintaining a reputation for delivering a top quality service through teams of highly trained professional consultants.

``This was a fantastic experience for everyone at Pearson, LOF were brilliant and delivered everything on time and to specification``

Leicester Office Furnishers secured the contract with Pearson Anderson which was a full refurbishment and interior design scheme. Partitioning, electrics, decoration, kitchen, signage, furniture and planting were all part of the project. Full height glazed partitioning was used for the directors offices with half height glazed partitioning used for the remaining rooms.

Pearson Anderson were bringing some of their existing furniture across to their new offices so the new furniture had to fit in with this as much as possible. They had a combination of Sven Christiansen’s Ambus corner desks as well as a section of bench desking which was used for their sales team. Desk mounted dividing screens were fitted to both their new and existing desks in a purple fabric to highlight their corporate colours.

We created a new reception area by dividing the space off slightly with a solid partition that sat behind a new curved X-Range reception counter. The reception desk was finished in white in order to draw new visitors eyes up to the new Pearson Anderson signage behind. Sven’s Clarity seating was used for visitors to sit on in the reception area with matching coffee tables in Camira’s Hemp fabric range. The fabric chosen is actually wool and hemp blended together to create a fabric with unique performance, appearance and environmental properties.

Sven Christiansen’s Clarity seating range was also used in the Directors office which created a more executive look with panel ended X-Range desks and storage in a natural walnut finish. Seating in this office included Boss designs Lily operator and visitors chairs in a beige faux leather upholstery which looked really smart against the darker wood.

We created and furnished their new kitchen/staffroom area with X-Range stackable plastic chairs with matching stools and white, trumpet base tables which all sat on their newly laid vinyl flooring. In the open office, booths were created for their registrations department using floor standing upholstered screens. Trapezoidal shaped fliptop tables (also from Sven Christiansen) were used to create a training room and auditorium.

Pearson Anderson’s offices have had a complete transformation from when we first visited site. They wanted to create an office space that looks as smart as those based in London and we think that has certainly been achieved!
