Do you have any furniture in your UCL office space that needs maintenance or simply a little bit of TLC?

You may find swivel chairs not moving due to loss of gas, wobbly desks, keys not turning in locks, loose fittings, sticky tambour door shutters etc. etc.   If so, book a site visit from JPA Workspaces, approved UCL framework furniture suppliers on one of the published repair day dates.

To book a JPA visit to your department, simply contact hello@jpa-workspaces.com.  Please give as much information and any pictures of the problem so when the JPA team arrives, they have the best possible chance of fixing the item on the day.

Please note, this service is only available on the UCL Bloomsbury Campus.

If you have unwanted office furniture, you can ask the JPA Team to broadcast this to other departments and/or list the items on Warpit, UCL’s reuse platform – JPA can assist with moving these items across campus to ensure optimal uptake. 

Both options are quick and easy, enabling colleagues across UCL to claim furniture and maximise existing campus furniture stock. Re-use prevents additional virgin resource use and yet more carbon emissions from manufacture of new, so helps UCL and the planet towards it’s NetZero targets.

If you have a lot of unwanted items, simply contact JPA who can collect for materials recycling (ensuring zero to landfill and associated nasties) or contact UCL's Waste manager Paul Monk.
