Sustainability has always been at the heart of our business and it’s been 6 years now since we formalised our processes. Since then we’ve made measured progress in many areas of our work to reduce our impact whilst transforming interior spaces. 


But we don't stop there! We've got plans and we were overwhelmed by the response to them when we shared our Sustainable Manufacture Philosophy at our recent webinar.


Read the full document outlining our plans in our pdf or catch up on the webinar with Caroline Atack, Davison Highley and James Bell, Dragonfly Sustainability who explained more at our carbon neutral launch event!

Although many can't wait to get back to the workplace, there will surely still remain a desire from employees for a little privacy, space and a sense of security. Create those workable spaces with high backed seating, positions which face outwards, enclosed booths which still allow fresh air to circulate and larger booths which may be used by one person for the moment yet can adapt to a future which looks more familiar. We've collected together some examples to inspire you!

Our teams are currently working from home or safely distanced in our Covid secure workshop, so please do not hesitate to contact us if you need assistance or simply a chat!

On Thursday 15th October weheld our inaugural webinar where we be explored the topic of sustainability accreditations, in the context of workplace furniture, and how to navigate them with industry expert James Bell, Dragonfly Sustainability. James has been working with Davison Highley for many years helping us realise our own sustainability goals in terms of manufacturing procedures and opportunities.

"Both across the furniture supply chain and broader commercial interiors sector, sustainability certification has become an increasingly established feature in demonstrating and promoting environmental and social benefits. Although, at the same time, this has led to a proliferation of schemes, creating confusion and complexity with regard to the specific sustainability objectives targeted by these standards. In this webinar we will examine and demystify these certification schemes, whilst offering practical guidance to enable you to make empowered decisions on your sustainability requirements.” James Bell, Dragonfly Sustainability.

It’s been a unique 6 months, a transformation on so many levels for all of us. One of our Account Managers, Caroline Atack has taken some time to consider what those changes have meant to both her and Davison Highley, whilst reflecting on industry demands and trends.

“At the end of the day the one thing I am really missing is human contact and it’s a real treat to have scheduled appointments now at our Clerkenwell showroom. Bouncing ideas off each other, interaction. I think where people can work at home they probably still will and then just come to the office when they need to work together as a team, in a focussed and mindful way. Meanwhile we remain open minded to stay connected wherever we can.”

Whilst concerns for hygiene and the re-working of the workplace remains top of the agenda for many businesses, we are also seeing clients adopting a more mindful approach to purchasing where consideration is rightly given to sustainability credentials.

It's a topic which has been central to Davison Highley since our family business was created. Our circular approach effects every step we take from utilising a local supply chain, developing products to maximise resources and add value, through to the re-use of ex-showroom furniture and production off cuts within local community projects.

Whilst we're extremely proud of our accreditations, in essence they are a natural consequence of the practises we have in place across the business. Those processes and our integrity is putting us in a good place to weather the current challenges and continue to serve our clients with a timely, reliable and sustainable service.

NEW from DAVISON HIGHLEY

Introducing the BEE collection, a modern take on the classic modular system which recognises the increasingly agile requirements of workplace. Futureproof and incorporating work elements such as tables, technology, planting and mobility, the new range incorporates 4 options; BEEmodular, BEEsettled, BEEworking and BEEcollaborative.

Elements can be combined effortlessly, with the reassurance our robust linking system will hold them firmly in position, until you are ready to reconfigure the elements should the needs of the workplace evolve. Create natural and safe divisions with panels or take a biophillic approach with planter units incorporated into the design.

Create a cohesive design scheme for your workplace.

First and foremost, we send wishes of good health to all our clients, colleagues and friends.

As we all await advice in the coming week from the government on our collective return to the workplace, there is plenty of thought leadership into how the new workplace is going to shape up. One thing is for certain, it will look different for us all. From flexible work patterns, increased hygiene stations, removal of hot desking or even the addition of workpods we are sure to see the very best of creativity. We've curated some Space Inspiration for you below if you need to design in more social distancing.

With all raw materials coming from within a 50 mile radius of our High Wycombe workshop we can be nimble to respond as soon as we have the reassurances it is safe to do so for our employees.

Meanwhile, stay safe at home.

The red sofa.
We've probably all been seeing more of this sofa over recent weeks! Although most of our projects are for workplace, we do also work with production companies on some of the major TV shows. We're particularly proud of the iconic red sofa which we manufactured earlier this year before lockdown. It's based upon the Buzz Collection with some customisation as developed with the client.

Space inspiration.
Need to encourage some social distancing? Get inspired with this selection of seating; reception area seating from Cristiana, private booth seating with Skylon, flexible stools for extra perch spots with Bertie or banquette seating with the three seater Boulevard available at a convenient 1800mm width or even incorporate arm breaks for intuitive spacing.

This week, although our machines lie quiet, we continue to process orders, ready to move into production as soon as the government advice permits.


It has always been central to our business strategy to work with local suppliers, although originally driven by sustainability goals, now, more than ever, that local supply chain is invaluable to us. With all supplies coming from within a 50 mile radius of our High Wycombe workshop we can be nimble to respond as soon as we have the reassurances it is safe to do so for our employees.


Meanwhile, stay safe at home.

As a family run business nothing is more important to us at Davison Highley than the people we work with, whether staff, clients or suppliers, our first thought is always for the health and wellbeing of every individual. During this period we are actively working to limit how the Covid-19 virus is impacting both the business and our people.

This week we have followed the instructions of our Prime Minister and asked our team to stay home and stay safe. Pausing production and temporarily closing our Clerkenwell showroom were difficult decisions but we will resume as soon as possible in line with government advice. Our Sales, Admin and Design teams are all working from home; processing orders- ready to move into production as soon as it recommences, working with our suppliers to ensure that our orders will be ready as soon as we need them and everyone is on hand to help as normal, so keep in touch with your usual contact.

Our financial standing has never been stronger and as a wholly owned family business we pride ourselves on straight talking, being fair and will be working hard with our supply chain to meet our client needs. Our business planning in recent weeks has served us well and we have good stock levels; our timber stores are at an all-time high, likewise our parts and fittings.

We want to reassure our clients that any order you have placed or are planning on placing will be fulfilled to the best of our ability. Manufacturing production is primed and ready so we can return to normality as soon as this isolation period is over, any orders placed whilst we are waiting to restart production will be processed up to manufacture stage and will result in shortened lead times. We will of course continue to update you as the situation evolves.

Our social media is being regularly updated and we’re going to be putting additional work into our Pinterest page; please take a look if you’re working on a new project or let us know if you need help to develop an existing project, we’re here to help.

We recognise this is a difficult time for us all professionally and personally and we would like to take this opportunity to offer our support in any way we can. Our sales team are working from home and always available to answer questions, discuss products and help with projects.

 

Kind Regards

Toby Davison
