Working with architects & contractors

FreshGround works directly with architects, designers and contractors, helping with the placement of coffee machines and water dispensers in kitchen and tea point designs. Get in touch today to learn more.

Arm writing something

Let’s get it right the first time

Historically, coffee suppliers are approached after a tea point or office kitchen has been designed, built and installed. Through years of experience, FreshGround has identified the value added to the installation process by being involved from the beginning.

We work with designers to ensure plumbing, waste, electrics and fittings are in the right place, ensuring the installation is correct the first time. This eliminates costly removals and redesigns, and saves everyone a lot of hassle!

The old vs the new – what we do

We’re all familiar with the challenges that come from squeezing suppliers into the fit-out process. Instead of butting heads and causing issues, FreshGround has chosen a new approach when it comes to working with contractors. Check out the below infographic for a flavour of what we mean.

So how does it work?

We’ve produced the below relationship timeline to demonstrate how FreshGround can work with you and your clients.

Relationship Timeline

We find it best to be included as part of the initial planning phase to make sure the client gets exactly what they want, and you get the best design brief possible. Once the tea point is finished, FreshGround will stay with the client to help with initial launch and training on the machines. Going forward, we’ll maintain that client relationship, offering servicing and technical support where appropriate.

Lumanity and HOP Interiors case study

We applied the above structure to a recent fit-out project at Lumanity. We worked very closely with HOP Interiors from the very beginning and achieved a fantastic result. Check out the video case study below.

Communicate with clarity

Never assume – keep people in the picture, even if it’s not what they want to hear. We’re clear. We’re concise. We keep our customers in the picture, and we take the time to explain things properly so there’s no room for confusion.

How We Work

Every customer is different, with a range of needs, requirements and specifications that will affect everything from design and installation to machine and coffee preference. As such, we break the process into three steps, ensuring we get it right the first time.

  • Discover

    Our process starts with a discovery session, where we go through our range of carefully curated coffees to find out exactly what the customer likes. The FreshGround team is Speciality Coffee Association trained, so really know their stuff when it comes to coffee!

  • Create

    With the customer’s needs, likes and requirements in mind, we go about creating the perfect package for them. This is where we recommend one or a selection of our coffee machines and drinking water taps. We specialise in flexible rental agreements, and always strive to find the best value and quality for our customers.

  • Enjoy

    With the machines in place and office kitchen all sorted, we stay on hand to keep the coffee flowing. All our equipment comes with a service plan as standard, but we also offer a Complete Care package for full peace of mind. We don’t sell machines, we build relationships.

“I have recommended FreshGround to a number of my clients. The process has always been streamlined by an early introduction which ensures that we include correct water and waste provision. The team at FreshGround have always been on hand to help us understand the specifications and what products work best for our clients.”
