Office Furniture Center Case Studies
When Able Electropolishing decided it was time to upgrade their sWhen Able Electropolishing decided it was time to upgrade their space, they turned to Office Furniture Center to help them give them the solution they were looking at the price that didn’t break the bank!
Office Furniture Center’s furniture specialist and designer initially met with Able’s CEO Tom Glass and his team to first understand their vision for their space, to discuss options for the existing furniture assets and they plan to making the new space happen. The OFC presented options for furniture to meet Able’s budget and timing considerations as well as drawings on how the furniture would be laid out in the space. Able chose OFC’s refurbished Ethospace frame and tile system using contemporary fabrics, laminates and color schemes to give them a modern, clean and open feel.
Over the course a weekend, OFC’s MAC Relocations team came in and removed the old furniture assets, delivered and installed the new furniture pieces. On Monday morning, Able’s staff was able to move into their new space and begin enjoying their furniture immediately.
Girls Inc. of Chicago
A nonprofit organization in Chicago, Girls Inc., needed a new look office that was modern, utilized color to incorporate the company’s branding, and was at an affordable price to stay within their budget, so they partnered with Office Furniture Center to get exactly the office they wanted for less.
Office Furniture Center’s space planning team worked closely with the nonprofit to understand exactly what their needs were. This included an office visit to get a feel for the aesthetic of the room as well as taking measurements to ensure the proper office layout. The product utilized included refurbished Herman Miller Ethospace workstations with custom red and white panels that match their company colors. The seated privacy setup gives the office a more open feel and has resulted in a more productive, collaborative work atmosphere.
The final step was to get everything delivered and installed. Our partner company MAC Logistics delivered and completely installed the entire office smoothly and efficiently so that the nonprofit was able to finish its week with the old office and start its week in the new office with no disruptions to its activities.
Howard Packaging came to the Office Furniture Center showroom on a Saturday in search of 12 workstations with seating, desks to furnish 4 private offices, vertical & lateral files, and additional ancillary furniture for a breakroom and a library. His company had experienced a pipe burst in their office. The water was over 20” high and had ruined the entire space. Acquiring quality furniture in a tight-timeframe was imperative to recovery efforts and ensuring that business was not lost as a result of unforeseen circumstances.
By the following Monday afternoon, a custom draft of the office and quotes were created by our design specialists and sales team. On Tuesday morning, the quote was signed-off on and installation by our in-house specialists, MAC Relocations was arranged. Given the circumstances, our team was able to prioritize and seamlessly execute furnishing an entire office from start-to-finish in just over one-week.
Installation was completed by MAC Relocations on the following Monday, allowing business to resume as usual at Howard Packaging.
