New communal areas in three schemes for housing provider, Thirteen. | News | Procurement Hub

Procured through our Furniture and Furnishing framework, our framework partner Buckingham Interiors has designed and furnished the communal areas in three schemes for housing provider, Thirteen.

Thirteen is a social purpose business who provide their customers with homes, support and opportunities to grow. They are based in the North East and manage 34,000 properties for rent and sale from North Tyneside to York.

Buckingham Interiors were appointed to design and furnish the communal areas in three of their schemes, High Grange House, Bamburgh Court and Lauder House. Thirteen had specified colours they wished to use, therefore we adapted our mood boards to present furniture options to complement their choices. The fabrics used added texture and softness to the room, creating a relaxed and comfortable environment for their residents. They wanted light and colourful spaces for their residents, which they feel they have achieved.

Products at Buckingham Interiors are contract quality, certified to BS Standards and all fabric and foam comply with Crib 5 fire retardancy as required by law - giving our customers assurance in the suitability of the ranges available.

Thirteen were especially impressed by Buckingham Interiors' in house delivery team who could not have been more helpful and thought the quality of our products was excellent.

Thirteen were also pleased that Buckingham Interiors were able to return their previous furniture to our warehouse for reuse and recycling as part of our social value programme. As Buckingham Interiors is part of the FRC Group, they are able to provide items with a sustainable outcome - through refreshing them, ready for use by somebody in need, or recycling the materials responsibly.

“Buckingham Interiors have more than delivered in bringing our visions to life! Working with them was such a smooth experience – they kept us informed throughout the process and were flexible and accommodating to our needs. We would highly recommend their services.” - Rubie Lee, Project Manager - Thirteen Group
