Project Refurbishment and Office fit-out


Many published research white papers rank the option to position a computer in a suitable location as one of the most important attributes of a comfortable workspace. Take the new refurbished offices for Hull City Council with the initial phase opening back in January 2011 and the 2nd phase just being completed the ergonomic office environment has been fully adhered to. Working closely with Dave Batty at Custom Business Equipment, a highly competitive supplier of stationery, furniture and electronic consumables, CMD Ltd supplied the project with the award winning Cygnus gas lift monitor arm and affordable under desk power modules. With the 2nd phase also seeing the addition of CMD’s new slimline Enclose CPU support creating not only an ergonomically desk set up but a pleasant and profitable environment to work in, benefiting both the employer and the employee.


The ergonomic benefits gained from using a gas lift monitor arm allow the technology to move with the individual user, ensuring a bespoke ergonomic posture is created together with reducing eye strain, vital for daily PC users. A greatly underestimated complaint is the loss of working days due to work-related musculoskeletal disorders. Would you be surprised to learn that over 9.3 million working days were lost during 2009/2010 (source: HSE). The UK is a step behind its European counterparts in having the proper ergonomic support which can elevate these disorders, and promote a safer, healthier office environment. Something as simple as a monitor arm can make all the difference to a happier and more productive office environment.

Tim Shirt, Account Manager at CMD said “We were delighted to partner with Custom Business Equipment Ltd on this exciting project with Hull City Council. Significant investment has been ploughed into this building to create a more modern working environment and creating an area of office space fully suited to its workforce. CMD prides itself on being a highly versatile, progressive and innovative manufacturer with Cygnus just being a prime example of this.”
