The Lighting Industry Association is Europe’s largest Trade Association for lighting equipment professionals. This includes lighting manufacturers, suppliers, retailers, wholesalers, designers and all professionals active in the UK lighting market. In 2014/2015 TLIA updated their Centre Head Office in Telford, Shropshire, to create a more inviting environment for their staff to work in.
We at Cotswold Business Interiors, worked closely with the TLIA team to provide a full fit out solution to their existing office. We started off by transforming their main entrance staircase and landing area to create a far more ‘welcoming’ approach to not only their clients and students, but to all the staff as well. First of all a fully glazed meeting room replaced offices on the first floor with new ceilings and lighting, along with new soft seating and meeting room furniture by Allermuir and Senator. Cotswold Business Interiors then closely followed this project through with a superb glass balustrade on the staircase, manufactured and installed by Delta Balustrades, in turn replacing the plan existing banister and hand rails. This therefore completely lifted the whole look of the main reception area. The original administration offices were stripped back to give a completely ‘blank canvas’ making provision for maximum creativity, which led through to a stunning and highly productive working office environment. Again ceilings, lighting, full height glazed partitioning and fully updated air conditioning was specified & installed by the Cotswold Business Interiors team. We then fully furnished the office interior with the install of Senator desking, seating and storage to this modern and technologically advanced admin academy centre, which is home to staff dealing with all their client calls, appointments and sales.
Cotswold Business Interiors provided The Lighting Industry Association a range of advisory services including specifying interior finishes, product illustration renders and floor plans with the design and installation of graphics & signage on the glass walls. In February 2016, TLIA completed a huge dedicated laboratory & office building extension to their existing premises, to provide state of the art technology – and an environmentally friendly working habitation to help them in their growth and increasing dedication to their staff and clients alike. Cotswold Business Interiors worked very closely with them to provide with a creative design, supply and installation of office furniture to suit the newly built environment. Seating and meeting room furniture was sourced from Senator along with Mercol providing desking and storage to individually suit their work space needs.
