FurnituRECYCLE complete management service

Re-use and recycling for office and site furniture

TCi provides a workspace furniture design, delivery and installation service, often within complex temporary environments such as construction site accommodation.

What’s the problem with site furniture?

Frequently, the issue of disposal poses a serious logistical and environmental challenge, prompting TCi to develop an industry-specific asset management programme.

What’s the solution?

By removing, refurbishing and storing your used furniture for redeployment at your next project site, Furniturecycle delivers economic and environmental savings, reducing waste-to-landfill and embodied carbon

The programme has developed alongside ECO360® carbon-zero, fully recyclable desk as a two-pronged approach to sustainability in order to offer clients the option of either disposable or reusable furniture.

By adopting this service, industry leaders are achieving zero waste-to-landfill, carbon reductions AND cost savings on site accommodation furniture!

How it works:

  1. Furniture is supplied and installed at site.
  2. At the end of the project, furniture is removed and returned to a refurbishment and storage facility.
  3. Used products are graded before storage
  4. An online portal enables the client to access real-time stock information which can be called-off for installation at the next site setup.

With a unique understanding of construction industry requirements, a design team is on hand to provide expert space planning to maximising capacity and layout. Furniture assets are then called off, delivered and installed by qualified professionals.

FurnitureCycle furniture reuse programme – questions answered:

Who does the furniture belong to?

At all times, the assets remain the property of your company and can be accounted as such. Simple portal access enables you to have complete visibility of everything we look after for you, whether it’s on your site, in our warehouse or in transit.

We have a lot of furniture already. Is this just for furniture purchased directly from TCi?

The service is for all furniture, whether you bought it from us or not. It wouldn’t be good environmental or financial practice if we made you get rid of all your furniture first! Each item enters our system when we collect it for the first time.

What if there’s not enough furniture in storage for my new site?

Your account manager will be able to provide a quote for the additional items which can then be added to the site assets.

Am I really saving carbon?

Yes! For every new item of furniture produced, there’s a carbon cost. If you reuse that product instead of buying a new one, then you are effectively saving another from needing to be made.

How much carbon would I be saving?

Carbon savings vary across projects and depend on the numbers of items used, but a typical, small site accommodation for 250 personnel could reflect upwards of a 25 tonnes!

How is the carbon saving on furniture calculated?

TCi has been busy gathering data and scouring research papers to come up with some basic figures for the embodied CO2 equivalent on our standard furniture ranges. It’s a tricky science with many variable factors, so a degree of averaging has been established, always erring on the conservative side. Using these values, the carbon cost of transport and storage can be subtracted from the overall saving, providing a good snapshot of the carbon saved each time an item of furniture makes it to its new home.

Zero waste? What happens when the products truly reach their end of life?

The fact remains that although they could often last much longer than the projects they’re bought for, furniture products don’t last forever. We’ll take unusable/broken items out of circulation and find the best way to reuse and recycle the parts using zero-to-landfill waste collection as the final resort.

How long will you keep my furniture for?

Ultimately, that’s up to you, but we’ll encourage you to move it on to the next site quickly to keep storage costs to a minimum.

How much money can I save?

This depends on the quantity of furniture, distance between sites and the length of time it needs to be stored between uses, but examples based on a 135 mile transport radius and 12 week storage show approximately 70% cost reduction against a similar installation from new.
