Thanet Earth

Client  - Thanet Earth

 

Location- Birchington, Kent

 

 

Client Background – The Thanet Earth site is home to three vast greenhouses. Inside them they grow tomatoes, peppers and cucumbers; their crops destined for the shelves of some of Britain's biggest retailers. Each greenhouse is a power station too, generating electricity for the National Grid. They keep their plants warm by making use of the waste heat from their cutting edge Combined Heat & Power technology which also provides them with the extra CO2 their plants need to grow to their potential. This means that their produce doesn't just taste delicious, it has a very low carbon footprint too. Therefore customers receive delicious crops, grown and packed in Kent, from a grower with an excellent environmental record.

 

Requirements

 

·         Reception Desk & Seating

 

·         Directors Office

 

·         Boardroom

 

·         Control Room

 

·         Offices x 4

 

·         Café Area

 

·         Cloakroom Benching

Lead Time – 3 Weeks installed

 

 

 

Client Comments -

 

 

 

’ Choosing a new supplier is not easy. However it became quite apparent at first meeting that Harts were both knowledgeable and experienced which gave us the confidence to place our trust in them.

 

We needed a supplier who was able to offer quality furniture within budget and short time restraints. They went the extra mile to ensure we were fully functional for our launch day which went very successfully. We have since purchased further items and would recommend them to anyone wishing to deal with an honest and reliable company.’’

Manston- Kent's International AirportManston- Kent's International Airport

Business Lounge

We were instructed by Manston Airport to create a business lounge where travellers would be able to wait in comfort, yet still be able to work if necessary.

Separate areas were required for Reception, Internet access, Lounge and Cafe. Working alongside JBH Refurbishments, we brought all these elements together in one area.

Charles Buchanan, CEO of Manston Airport, commented on our development "As Manston Airport develops we are keen to work with Kent based companies who understand our needs and share our passion for quality and service. In JBH and Harts of Maidstone we have found such companies. They understood what we were trying to achieve and delivered to a very tight timescale. The lounge they have conceived and created complements the rest of the growing airport."

 It has been a pleasure to work closely with JBH Refurbishments once again and we look forward to growing our relationship with Manson Airport  in the future.

Chatham Historic Dockyard Project – Sail and Colour Loft

Chatham Dockyard Logo

We were instructed to supply furniture which was to be in keeping with the building but still leave it reasonably open plan. Executive offices were created as well as modular meeting rooms to accommodate various styles of collaboration. Oak finish was used in both office and meeting areas along with ergonomic task seating.

 About the Building

 One of The Historic Dockyard Chatham’s earliest buildings, it was erected for the sailmakers.

Most of the pillars and floor beams are reused warship timbers, probably from ships of the time of the Dutch Wars.

In 1758, forty-five sailmakers were employed in the dockyard. As the Navy’s use of flags increased, a separate female workforce was employed to make them, and they soon became known as the ‘ladies’ of the Sail Loft. Nelson’s famous signal prior to the Battle of Trafalgar in 1805,England expects every man to do his duty’, was sent in signalling-flags most probably made in this building.


The Sail and Colour Loft represents another remarkable achievement in the long term perseveration of The Historic Dockyard’s buildings, structures and environment by developing appropriate sustainable new uses for their properties.

Modular Training Tables

One of our fastest growing ranges is the Modular Training Table Range. In many cases boardrooms are no longer just used for meetings- they are transformed into training, seminar and collaborative spaces.

The Modular Training Table range is available in Straight, Semi Circular and Trapezoidal shapes meaning you can have a variety of configurations. The table legs are silver and round rather than traditional square type legs making them have a more executive look.

With prices starting from only £80 + vat  they are  affordable, look great and are hard wearing. They carry a five year manufacturers guarantee and past this, if you decide you would like to replace the tops because of wear & tear or would just like a change of colour- we can supply tops only making this a versatile, value for money range which is hard to beat!

Available in a variety of colours in 7-10 working days. For full details of sizes Click Here

December 2012

Firstly my apologies. 2012 saw the arrival of my son Charles in February and the last year has disappeared in a flash. Although i was back to work from home after 2 weeks, and in work three days a week by 6 weeks, the sheer amount of paperwork meant i was snowed under most of the time and I'm afraid my News Page has suffered. As ever we have introduced many new ranges over the last year and will continue to do so into 2013. In the coming months I aim to bring things up to date...slowly but surely!

 Home Page Video

At Harts we decided we needed something a little more visual to emphasise some aspects of our business. We contacted Creative Motion –a motion graphics company in Kent to discuss our requirements and within a few days we were providing information to create our video.

We supplied pictures and text to get various messages across and Creative Motion did the rest. We are extremely happy with the final result and have received very positive feedback. Please do share your opinions with us- we are always happy to hear your views.
