We help make your workspace great

Creating the perfect work, rest or play environment is crucial for stakeholder engagement and productivity. It’s time for your workplace to inspire your team and to build an environment where your people can thrive.

We advise and consult

Workplace furniture should adapt to people and not vice-versa. As specialists in work and learning space design (with over 45 years of industry experience), we can knowledgeably advise on the best solutions for your interior and furniture challenges. 

There are simply so many issues to be addressed when planning your move or refurbishment, from legal requirements and standards, through to space management, workflow, how to create an environment which fosters engagement and collaboration, well-being, biophilia, noise and acoustic consideration, corporate branding etc – we can help. 

We ensure your workplaces encourage more active working habits, deliver interesting, fun spaces to work and improves team performance whilst at the same time full complying with standards, specifications, DSE & H&S issues.

We manage your projects

JPA are a single source provider for project work. All elements of your refurbishment or new build project are controlled by our dedicated project management team and delivered by our internal purchasing, delivery and install teams. This means we can keep a close eye on your project at every step of the way, delivering on time, to budget and on design.

Our dedicated project management team guide you through the full process, pre, during and post installation, with our post occupation service teams looking after you and your furniture for as long as your people are there.


We design & plan your spaces

With 45 years + experience in individually tailored office, educational and healthcare projects we have developed an advanced space planning and design service. 

We can help you bring improved workflow, communication, activity, choice and flexibility into your work-space, providing 2D and 3D walkthroughs, along with visuals of your project to give you a realistic and accurate view of how your new space will look.

This enables informed feedback and decisions at the design stage and ensures that the finished result meets and exceeds expectations.

We supply world class furniture

JPA are an independent family owned company who bring choice from the entire market-place to you and you projects. We select and tailor the best and most appropriate furniture products to each project, tailoring to your specific brief and individual project requirements. 

With world-class suppliers and a world-class furniture portfolio we bring furniture of the highest standards and specification to our work with you. We also offer refurbishment, maintenance and servicing to keep your furniture in tip top condition for longer.

We deliver award winning sustainability

JPA take pride in looking after the environment as well as our clients, so sustainability is a key to our project process. We provide an award-winning sustainable project approach delivering long-term value over total cost of life – financially, environmentally and socially.

We work with manufacturers to ensure that all our products have high proportion of recycled materials, are made so that parts can easily be replaced and eligible for SKa, BREEAM or LEED green building credits (although we need to know this is required in advance).     

We maintain, reuse and recycle your furniture

JPA’s Project Dodo is our own award-winning furniture maximisation programme! We work with you to help your furniture last longer before you buy new, through repairs, refresh, reupholstery, reconfiguration or off-site relocation – there’s no excuse for single use! If you really can’t use it, we’ll simply collect it and try and rehome it in the community or recycle it for materials recovery. Either way, we make it easy for your organisation to reduce furniture waste and eliminate furniture landfill.

We move and re-locate your teams

Our own JPA installation team and vehicle fleet can also be utilised for workspace moves, storage (as we also have our own warehousing) and relocations. 

Our project managers make it easy for you to organise reconfiguration planning, auditing, asset management, storage and crate hire with experienced, qualified labour and transport to help you get the job done with minimal downtime and zero stress. Our fitters are also easily recognisable in their JPA uniforms, CSCS qualified and DBS checked for security and your peace of mind.

We use our own vehicle and fitting teams

Because we have our own employed fitting teams, delivery vehicles and warehousing we can offer our clients full control over the entire order process, from initial specification through to delivery, installation and post occupation support - it’s all part of the JPA service.

We have the flexibility to dovetail with changing building or refurbishment schedules, store goods for call off when there are unexpected delays or get to site fast for emergency all outs – no more waiting 2 weeks for a site visit. It’s not unusual for JPA to carry top up stock and spare parts at our warehouse for emergency next day call off, whether out of hours or at weekends – we are here to help. Our full resources are at your disposal to ensure rapid response, minimal downtime and hassle free solutions for all your furniture challenges.
