Multiplex embraces sustainability by using recycled ECO360 cardboard desks at 100 Bishopsgate

TCi furniture WORKS engaged with Multiplex Construction Europe Ltd to supply and install site setup furniture at this prominent development in the City of London.

Multiplex have a strong commitment to sustainability, underpinned by their environmental management policies to keep a closed-loop approach to material procurement and waste management and so naturally sought an environmentally friendly alternative to the usual solid wood desks we see in offices.

  • Project: 100 Bishopsgate
  • Location: City of London
  • Delivered: January 2018

The office furniture installation has included more than 150 workstations, operators’ chairs and meeting tables, saving significantly on the use of natural materials.

“We’ve had some great responses and other sites have already contacted ours after seeing our intranet article saying how good they look and that they want to roll them out…”

In addition, the newly appointed project office features 79 ECO360 100% recyclable, sustainable cardboard desks. The environmentally friendly workstations allow for easy disposal and recycling of major office furniture components. ECO360 is manufactured from majority recycled FSC® board and comprises a recyclable, transparent acrylic work surface and premium ABS cable port. Furthermore, delivery of the desks has been carbon-offset via a UK tree-planting scheme.

100 Bishopsgate is a 2-acre site in London’s historic financial district, a short walk from Liverpool Street station. The striking design incorporates a forty story tower and seven storey podium which will feature a green roof terrace. The project will provide 860,000sqft of office space and joins 30 St Mary Axe as a feature on the London skyline.

ECOdesk360 is a 100% sustainable workstation solution. Made from 100% recyclable cardboard and finished with a hard-wearing, recyclable acrylic top, ECO360 represents a truly sustainable solution for the workplace of the future.
