Furniture & Equipment projects


Are you looking to revamp your office space, or do you have a new school build or refurbishment in the pipeline?

Our Furniture & Equipment (F&E) Projects team are here to support you. At ESPO, we know that planning for a large-scale furniture and equipment project can be a daunting task, that's why we have our very own dedicated F&E Projects team, specialising in new build and refurbishment projects, on hand to help our customers with their requirements. 

Working closely with you, our team can support you to streamline the process and help ensure things run smoothly from start to finish.

Every project is different which is why you can benefit from your own qualified and experienced Project Manager, as well as the expertise of specialist ESPO staff and suppliers as required. Working closely with you, we can help source a wide range of F&E products which strike the balance of quality while meeting your budget requirements

Your assigned Project Manager can support the strict management of many different factors:

Procurement compliance

Budget control

Product selection and ordering

Timings and deadlines

Delivery and installation


What help is available?

F&E projects can be undertaken purely as a procurement and supply function, or we can offer a full project management service. It’s up to you how much support you wish to receive. Depending on your needs we can provide the following:

Expertise on the F&E process as well as guidance on UK procurement law.
Support to agree product choices, specifications, quantities, ordering and room layouts.
Provide samples and technical information and co-ordinate visits to the site by specialists.
Prepare product schedules and product data sheets in line with architect drawings, budgets and lead times.
Review of F&E and co-ordination with architects, M&E (mechanical and electrical) contractors and main contractors if required.
Provide RAMS (risk assessments and method statements).
Provide comprehensive delivery schedules, co-ordinated with progress on site.
Organise and supervise on-site installation, including the removal of waste.
Provide O&M (operating and maintenance) information and on-site product familiarisation.
