Get Living London - Elephant and Castle

The Brief

Distinction Hotel Furniture was commissioned by Get Living London to manufacture the full furniture package for their new development of over 300 PRS apartments. Distinction worked closely with Get Living London to select suitable products, including upholstery and all casegoods. There were 3 schemes overall to select products for and a huge number of variations to keep track of. Once the project had been awarded Get Living London was appointed their own Project Coordinator from the Distinction team to manage to project from the initial stages, all the way through to installation.

From Concept to Samples

Get Living London engaged Distinction to tender for their project at an early stage. Distinction began by providing detailed quotations based on the interior designer specification provided and went through a process of value engineering and material selections with the client.

Once the project was won Distinction got to work engineering all pieces of furniture to ensure they were manufactured in the best, most robust way. Upon completion of these engineering drawings, they were presented to the client for sign-off and subsequently sent to our partners for pre-production samples to be made.

The Finished Items

The members of the Get Living London team were invited to visit our manufacturers on an all expenses paid trip to Asia to inspect all pre-production samples prior to mass production. Here they were able to offer any last feedback or alterations to the design, which could be incorporated immediately.

From here final sign-off was received and Distinction green lit mass production of all Get Living London’s items. These were delivered to site on time and the installation was managed from start to finish by Distinction ensuring a stress free process for the client. The apartments are now some of the most sought-after residences in London and a major part of the regeneration of Elephant and Castle.
