Think Thorne

We design, manage and build all aspects of your working environment. If you’re considering a move to new offices or simply need furniture, Think Thorne and we'll start thinking too.

How we think

We listen to your people

People are at the heart of every business and at the centre of our process. We listen to you, we talk to your staff, we analyse the space and discuss your project with our team. When we’re happy we’ve thought the details through, we recommend.

We’re adaptable

We work with a great mix of different-sized businesses – start-ups to established companies, colleges, schools and charities. We’re happy to work on any scale of project, from furniture to fit-out; as you grow we’ll be there to help.

We’re problem solvers

All projects present challenges: restricted space, time constraints, fixed budgets… We apply years of knowledge and expertise to offer carefully crafted solutions that support your broader plans.

We work within budgets

Budget counts. Whatever your project, we understand that budget will be at the top of your list. We have a transparent approach to achieving the best value; one of the main reasons our clients choose to work with us again and again.

We go the extra mile

We thrive on seeing a job well done. We do whatever it takes to deliver thoughtful and practical solutions with the minimum of fuss. It’s as simple as that. And we love what we do because, for us, it’s personal.

Our story

Just as our clients have expanded and developed over the years, so have we. Working from our offices on the leafy fringes of Cambridge, we’ve been known locally as Thorne Office Interiors since 2000. And today, we’ve given our name even more focus with a simple statement: ‘Think Thorne’.

Our clients have always praised the amount of thought we put into their projects and this has inspired us to create a clarion call to any businesses that need our help.

Andrew Thorne, our MD, maintains close involvement and control throughout each project, working with our Design Director, Lisa, and our brilliant team of trusted suppliers to deliver the best value and the highest standards.

“Plastic Logic has worked with Andrew since we moved to the Science Park in 2001. When we reconfigured our open-plan offices recently, he suggested some innovative acoustics and furniture solutions which have been really successful. I can’t fault his professionalism and the personal level of service he and his team provide.” Sue Eames
HR Director & Cambridge Site Lead
Plastic Logic Ltd

“We’ve worked with the team at Thorne for several years and they’ve always given us great service. We recently needed to house a number of start-up businesses in the same space but we weren’t able to change the existing lighting or ventilation. Their answer was to provide free-standing cellular offices inside the walls of the building. These can be taken down and re-arranged which gives us real flexibility as landlords and helps our tenants to grow easily with the minimum of cost. Thorne offer us really good advice, creative solutions and great results, all within our budget. We’re always happy to recommend them.” The Facilities Team
Liverpool Science Park

“Thorne helped us to improve the acoustics in our village hall which has benefitted the whole community.
