Case Study

An established Aerospace company approached ACE to explore options to increase headcount whilst using only the current available space. They had not so long ago moved premises and had quickly reached capacity in each area, even allowing for additional spaces. Not wanting to repeat the expense and disruption of relocation again they needed a great alternative.

The issue, as they saw it, was that their 60 strong aircraft engineers required large corner desks to accommodate laying out large plans and blueprints. But the maximum saturation they had been able to achieve in the available area was 60 desks.

ACE use the most up to date computer aided design techniques to create accurate, detailed room plans and 3D visualisations. The 2D plans enable optimum floor planning, vital for maximising resources. 3D visualisations allow customers to fully appreciate the end result using multiple product specifications on architect’s scale drawings. As customers can see proposed options, including different fabrics & finishes, they get the full experience and can easily visualise the final result. This prevents costly mistakes on larger projects.

Dave, CAD designer at ACE set up the current floor plan and explored options using it’s floor plan service. Ultimately he hit upon the perfect solution; to replace the 1600mm corner desks with even bigger 1800 bench desks. These were not only much more suitable for accommodating laying out large paper plans but also allowed an increase in desk placements. The 200mm bigger desks enabled the Aerospace company to increase it’s engineer headcount from 154 to 194 whilst giving each engineer more desk space and ensuring they had adequate storage facilities.

Our strength is being able to offer multiple layout options using a variety of products that maximises the potential of any space.” Commented Martin Hockey, Manager - Ergonomics, Furniture & Interiors at ACE. We were delighted to be able offer the perfect solution. We provided our customer with the ability to increase head count by 25% with larger desks and suitable storage for its engineers, it’s a win-win!”
