Marlowe Fire & Security Group

Flooring & Furniture Supply & Fit

Marlowe Fire & Security, deliver comprehensive fire life safety & security solutions, were looking for a company to supply and install their office furniture and flooring throughout the building. Having outgrown their existing office space which spanned across two floors, Marlowe were looking for a space which would promote a borderless approach, promoting staff to come together maximizing productivity and wellbeing.

Initially, Cobus were awarded the flooring contract, supplying and installing new floors throughout the ground and first floor. We worked closely alongside Marlowe and their designer to ensure the correct product was specified, in-budget. Desso AirMaster was specified with its unique sustainable qualities, lending itself to the project: it captures harmful, fine dust more effectively than any other flooring solution playing a fundamental role in designing a healthy workplace.

Throughout the main office, The Marlowe company logo was incorporated into the design, defining walkways throughout the office and in open plan areas. Each carpet tile was lazer cut to the bespoke shape and installed seamlessly within the carpet. In addition, our in-house fitters also installed safety flooring to their toilets and shower rooms, as well as an Altro sheet vinyl to their breakout and innovation suite.

It was a great success to achieve the finish result amidst the COVID-19 pandemic, where Cobus overcame many supply chain issues. The account manager worked very closely alongside the client to achieve the finished result - a fantastic space which has received positive feedback from the client.

"As part of Marlowe Fire & Security Group’s head office fit-out, we awarded Cobus with two significant parts of the fit-out contract. Cobus initially undertook the flooring contact, to supply and fit a combination of carpet tile and vinyl flooring solutions. By assisting with product selection, Cobus worked with us to transform a modern graphic design scheme into reality. The furniture contract followed, fending off significant competition, Cobus delivered a bespoke furniture solution which others could not match for style or price. Against the backdrop of early COVID lockdown, Cobus did a fantastic job to keep things progressing despite industry-wide supply chain challenges. The whole Cobus team were an absolute pleasure to work with and I can not recommend them highly enough. They ticked all the boxes for us. You will not be disappointed."
