Gresham Bespoke’s most recent projects have included a 13-metre-long, free-standing cantilever counter top using a steel frame anchored to the floor for the University of Birmingham, a reception desk with built-in cash till drawers for a leisure centre in Wiltshire, and another reception desk for Lloyds Register in London.
With little fanfare the bespoke side of the business has really taken off. There’s a growing appetite for individual design and items that create an instant impression and reinforce the personality of a business or workplace.
Items like reception desks are the most obvious place to do this and it’s the most popular request, but we also create bespoke soft seating that makes the most of existing space.
With relevant skills becoming increasingly rare, our Bespoke department is employing local people and training them internally through an apprenticeship and grading scheme.
We’re working with new clients every month but what we’re finding is that existing clients are coming back to us for more items too, we believe that’s because our products are engineered to a high standard as well as the service and aftercare we can provide.
