Today we started getting our new office ready for our big move in a few weeks time. So it was all systems go, and I met two of the workmen there at 0830 in the morning as we were having new outside doors fitted, and new phone points being put in throughout the office. We allowed for 16 telephone points which should be enough.
Enough to allow for any expansion in the future, our current system can handle the calls and in a year’s time we can upgrade to a newer system if need be. We have had the carpet fitter in to measure up and price the fitting of new carpets, to our training room and reception area. In the afternoon we are had the graphics company in to measure up for fitment of window and over the office sign, and training centre sign. So for the first day there was lots of activity and already the office is looking a whole lot better. The doors made a huge difference and now the building is secure as the old doors weren’t up to much and could have easily been opened. My wife Catherine found a new desk that she liked online and arranged for it to be delivered the next day. It’s a very nice desk and it’s a lot bigger than mine! A very nice sophisticated arched desk that will really look good in our new office together – we are creating our own MDs office – so we can have everything to hand. The only priority for me is to have a decent PC or should I say Mac, as that it what I now use for 95% of the time, so my Mac is going to look very good on my desk.
So in all a very eventful day. The doors looked fabulous and there was lots of new trunking running down the walls ready for the rest of the phone system to be installed.
