“The client looked into refreshing their existing furniture, but from a cost comparison they weren’t going to be happy with that given the look that they wanted to achieve,” said Workplace Solutions Manager Michelle Mintzlaff. “Using our BLENDED SOLUTION we proposed remanufactured furniture to achieve the aesthetic they wanted.”
Mintzlaff noted that the client considered new furniture, however, the VIP+ Value solution saved the company more than $20,000 and was far below competitor bids.
“Employees were moving into slightly smaller workstations so the client wanted the new ones to be not only functional but also visually pleasing,” said Mintzlaff, who topped the workstations with glass, added white trim for a modern look, and metal storage towers for a unique and functional touch.
From concept to completion, the six-month project incorporated more than 20 refurbished Herman Miller AO2 workstations and Office Furniture Center Aura chairs, which replaced more than half of the existing seating in the 15,000-square-foot space.
“We performed a needs assessment and handled logistics for the client,” said Mintzlaff, “ensuring both the expanded, new space and the existing space were configured for future growth.”
“The client is very pleased with the end result as are employees,” said Mintzlaff. “Every project has unique requirements and opportunities. I’m proud that our team exceeded expectations and delivered great work, within budget and on time.”
