PROJECT – CO-OP Pharmaceutical Centre, Workbench & Matting Installation

Posted on October 22nd 2019 by Aodhan Kinsella.

Workplace Project - Co-op

We were approached on behalf of Co-op to help with their exciting brand new distribution centre in Lea Green! The pharmaceutical centre will dispense medications ordered through Co-op’s brand new health app. So, how did we help? 

The Brief

We were asked to provide a continual workstation that could facilitate above lighting and noticeboards, as well as storage for beneath the units. Workers use a hot-desking system, so items they place in storage units require removing on a daily basis. As well as this, the surrounding floor area has to provide comfort for workers that are repeatedly walking in the area.


Our Workplace team worked with the idea of placing Cantilever Workbenches side-by-side. Totalling a number of 20 workbenches (10 each side), this created two rows of workstations for workers. The cantilever design worked perfectly for this scenario, as it optimises leg space for users and avoids interaction with the workbench framework.

Additionally, we provided Rear Support Posts and Rail Support – this allowed our client to add lighting above each bench.  The support posts also enabled full width Notice/Pinboards to be used – an accessory we also supplied. For the storage units, we were able to provide a bespoke solution. Thanks to our manufacturing facility in the West Midlands, we designed Mobile Cabinets without fronts or drawers. Making it easy for workers to remove their items on a daily basis.

Last but not least, we tackled the surrounding floor area! We finished off the project with the delivery of Orthomat Safety Diamond Anti-Fatigue Matting. The PVC foam qualities of this matting meant that workers could walk on a softer ground and reduce fatigue. Whilst also providing insulation against an expected cold and concrete floor. Supplying two 18.3m rolls, the matting finalised the appearance of a professional production line!
