Sustainability

nzgbc-new-logo-220x113 At Unison we understand that working in partnership with the environment is sound business practice and sustainability is an integral part of our brand. 

We deal with manufacturers that are recognised as industry leaders in environmentally responsible product design and manufacturing processes. Through Herman Miller we offer a product range that is based on "Cradle-to-Cradle" design. This is a way of designing that aims to eliminate the concept of waste, and create new business opportunities for the re-use of office furniture materials. This process ensures that chemicals used in materials are benign; that products can be easily dissembled at the end of their useful life for recycling; and that products contain recycled content and can be recycled again after their useful life.

Our key suppliers all operate within quality and environmental standards, and leaders such as Herman Miller are targeting zero carbon footprint in all aspects of their business by 2020.

All our suppliers have established, documented and maintain a quality system to the internationally recognized ISO 9001-and ISO 14001 standard. This registration is maintained by SGS International, which provides quality system registration services throughout the world. The scope of this registration includes the design, manufacture and physical distribution of wood and non-wood furniture. This registration helps to assure our products are the result of proven processes and consistently meet all applicable specifications. Registration also requires ongoing review of the quality system with an emphasis on continuous improvement. Our key products have Green Tag accreditation which the NZGBC is working with to establish as one of the leading certifications in NZ along with NZ Eco label.

Unison Workspaces is a proud member of the New Zealand Green Buliding Council who's vision is that "New Zealanders work and live in healthy, efficient, productive and environmentally sustainable buildings, today and into the future."

Added Value

Our customers' needs are not confined to the work environment alone, but focus on the processes that support their spatial design, specification, delivery, installation and ongoing facility management services.

Space Planning/Design

Our space planners consider a business' traffic flow, meeting spaces, equipment location, the flow of power and data, the quality and movement of conversation and light. We consider aesthetic choices, corporate culture, and community and individual needs in the development of space planning. This data is used to customise the perfect office-furnishing solution tailored to the needs of an individual business in order to create a more strategic workplace solution.

Workplace Strategy

An effectively designed workplace attracts and helps businesses to hold on to their best employees by keeping them happy, interested, healthy and productive. Our workplace planners gather design criteria, information, and ideas about a business and its future, their needs and budget, and the individual qualities of their workplace.

We show businesses how to use this information to encourage collaboration and innovation, support team interaction, build pride of place, and generally make employees feel more connected to the company's primary business.

Post Installation

At Unison our goal is to create a seamless experience during move in. We recognise the importance of securing the employees confidence, and acceptance starts the moment they walk in the door of their new workplace. Unison will deliver a "Welcome to the Workplace" package which will include details of the product provided, ergonomic and work process considerations as guidance to their workstations.

Chair Training

We provide an adjustment manual with every chair and offer an individual chair training session post installation.

Care and Maintenance

Care and maintenance manuals are provided for all our products as well as installation manuals so in-house maintenance teams can be also trained to support the products if required.

Lead time

Lead time for supply is 8-10 weeks for Herman Miller, POSH, Go Home and some Walter Knoll products manufactured in Australia. Other products out of Europe are generally 12-14 weeks.
