Coopervision are the worlds second largest manufacturer of contact lens and their UK Research and Development Pilot Facility is based in Chandlers Ford, Hampshire.

Due to a company acquisition and expansion of production further office workstations and meeting space was required as staff levels increased beyond what had been forecasted. Extra space was needed in a hurry and with no additional floor space being available the projects team at Coopervision once again called in Spaceway who they have worked with a many other projects.

A detailed brief was given including the additional amount of heads required. Spaceway then came up with a radical space saving plan and proposal that would include a complete re think on how Coopervision would work in the future.

The plan included reducing desk sizes using their unique suspended bench desk system, fitting suspended monitor arms to clear desk space and providing more effective storage.

Spaceway coordinated the whole of the works under the guidance of their experienced and fully trained project management team who took care of site logistics and Health and safety bon site so the project was delivered on time and smoothly with as little disruption as possible.

Weekend and evenings were often worked so the client could carry on their own day to day business requirements.

Spaceway also carried out a full office refurbishment which included :

  • Frameless Glass Partitioning
  • Full Height Oak Doors
  • Full Redecoration
  • LED Lighting
  • Oak Storage
  • Wall Bench Desking
  • Steel Storage Solutions
  • Air conditioning
  • Floor coverings
  • Audio Visual

Once the project was completed Spaceway provided full as built AutoCAD drawings and operation manuals as well as obtaining full building control approval on behalf of their client.
