20sixltd have worked on a variety of projects with the Blind Veterans UK at their Ovingdean establishment. One project nearing completion was to adapt an annex to make it a more user-friendly space.
The design was to provide a more collaborative space for the users, and 20six were asked to provide furniture designed specifically for sight-impaired and disabled people.
We were commissioned to work on the entire fit out from start to completion, that included stripping the existing space bare, demolition and removal works, which we carried out in phases causing minimal disruption to the staff or residents, and managing to avoid any downtime. Working over several months, we worked during weekends and out of hours.
Having made the annex more open plan, we supplied more rectangular desks which are able to be fitted together, as well as new carpets, chairs, monitor arms, pedestals, and branded upholstered desk screens.
We enjoy our time working with this charity and are looking forward to helping them with any future design plans.
