The Office Furniture Works team had the opportunity to assist as a local publication re-envisioned a workspace with new cubicles and an executive meeting space on the fourth floor of their downtown Chattanooga headquarters.
The space in question was dated, and needed a fresh new approach. So, management had to decide whether to refurbish what they had or find new solution. In this situation, our clients have to analyze a range of factors – each of which poses different costs and benefits.
Do they want to change the individual workstations? Should they reconfigure the layout to facilitate occupants’ work? Can the surrounding areas be utilized to improve employee experience?
While refurbishing cubicles is well within our wheelhouse, the process incurs significant downtime. That cost has the capacity to cancel out savings compared to buying new. New workstations entail lead times, which adds to an already-higher cost. After weighing all their options, the company renovated the space to better accommodate a new layout and furniture.
New Cubicles & Executive Boardroom Table Installation
Now, a partitioned conference room and kitchen flank either side of the open workspace. Our team installed a group of 30 new cubicles in the open workspace. Arranged in five rows of six, each cubicle is comprised of a 7′-wide work surface with 6′ partitions between each workstation. Dual file cabinet storage and lower panels meet occupants’ need for both organization and collaboration.
In the newly built-out conference room, we installed a 12′ executive conference table and accompanying chairs. The conference table top features three drop-in power modules spread across so everyone in each meeting can plug in and leverage technology to contribute.
