We were asked to tender for the new Brentford Community stadium against 3 other competitors. Part of our tender submission was to find a better alternative to one of the already proposed products to show our approach and methodology we take in finding the right products for our clients. We were successful and started working with the project team immediately. Time scales where very tight as we wanted to try and get orders placed before the new year price increases, This meant very strict management of the project ensuring everything was completed as per our programme. Through our negotiations we managed to get the club far higher spec products than initially proposed and we got them additional savings of over 100k on their initial budget. The only major snag on the project was the Covid 19 interruption to the build which meant we had to postpone deliveries for just over 2 months. Again we negotiated with the manufacturers and where able to do this with little or no fuss and no additional storage costs.
“Brentford Football Club’s biggest project was the planning of a new stadium development, to see the build commence in 2018, and then design that had the look and feel required. This required the club to go through a rigorous tender process of which Collaborate Furniture were without doubt the right choice. Collaborate Furniture’s team did everything from assist with the planning, concept development, work within budgets, site visits and deliver on time under the challenge of COVID-19 restrictions. The team from Dwyn, Jurgita, Tony and Steve and their colleagues delivered our project as per our vision with a smile and their attention to detail was second to none. Collaborate Furniture will be consulted with any future projects that the club explore, and we look forward to the team visiting us when the restrictions are lifted.”
