Gloucestershire Echo - - YOUR MONEY -


STAFF at the UK’S lead­ing home­de­liv­ery wine mer­chant are pop­ping corks af­ter its main call cen­tre of­fices were of­fi­cially re­opened fol­low­ing a ma­jor re­fur­bish­ment.

Laith­waite’s Wines called in in­te­rior de­sign spe­cial­ist, Cobus, to in­stall a mod­ern work­ing en­vi­ron­ment for 130 members of staff at its Glouces­ter­based of­fices. With the wine mer­chants ex­pected to take on an ad­di­tional 90 new members to cover the Christ­mas pe­riod, Cobus was re­quired to utilise the al­lo­cated workspace to al­low for the ma­jor growth in ca­pac­ity.

The fam­ily-run firm, also based in Glouces­ter, in­stalled up to 200 work stations, along­side ad­di­tional de­sk­ing and board­room ta­bles.

Phil Mcinnes, pictured, project man­ager at Cobus, said: “Us­ing our 40 years’ ex­pe­ri­ence in in­te­rior de­sign, the team were able to tackle the dif­fi­cult chal­lenge of pro­vid­ing ex­tra space for the ex­pected surge in staff by work­ing very closely with Laith­waite’s Wines from the ini­tial de­sign con­sul­ta­tion, right through to the in­stal­la­tion stage and on­go­ing af­ter-care. The end re­sult was a great suc­cess.”

A Laith­waite’s Wines spokesper­son said: “From start to fin­ish, the ser­vice plan­ning and de­liv­ery was ex­cel­lent.”
