CFS Renovation

CFS recently decided to put ourselves through the same process that our clients go through by working on improving our own space.  We created a list of objectives to work through and improve on and it turned out pretty spiffy, if we do say so ourselves.

Objectives:

  • Gain extra stations for the same footprint; we have gained 3 additional stations.
    Make the stations technology friendly – power and data ports wherever needed.
  • Go as paperless as possible to reflect the fact that everything is now in the cloud or, in our servers. We purged 70-90% of our paper on an individual basis.
  • Make our space more appealing from an architecture and design perspective by using cleaner and brighter finishes; unique lighting different types of art and branding mediums.
  • Make our space a true representation of Herman Miller’s “Living Office” concept – with different work settings – individual and collaborative. Refresh our break room and add casual sitting and meeting areas.
  • Design our space so that when clients see the space they will immediately say, “Ah-Ha!….NOW I know what we have to do to get new employees into our company and, what we have to do to keep them”.

So, where did we get to?  Here are the stats:

Station Size Before: 8’ x 8’ and 8’ x 9.5’ After: 6’ x 8’

Panels Before: 67” High After: 57” seated privacy

Overhead Storage Before: 2 Per Station After: None

Filing Before:2 peds; 2 4-5 Drawer Lateral Files After: 1-2 Peds; Storage Tower

Work SurfacesBefore: Full wrap After: Bowties with Adjustable Height Bases; Side/Back

Finishes Before: Dark; Beige –BLAH! After: White and Light Grey

Glass Before: Very Little After: Opaque Pieces throughout

Herman Miller Prospect

Herman Miler Prospect is designed to encourage impromptu collaboration and to provide a sense of privacy so that people can work together and then divide and conquer, all within an open floorplan. Fostering creativity is a priority for many organizations, but great ideas don’t always come from planned meetings in a conference room. For inspiration to strike, and for teams to develop their best ideas, they need the ability to gather, co-create solutions, and break off on their own for focused work.

Herman Miller Tabetha: Bring Your Own Device

In a BYOD (bring your own device) world, people may prefer one of many tablets, which come in a wide variety of sizes and brands. With Herman Miller’s Tabetha, one tool can serve the whole office without limiting device options. The mount’s brackets adjust from 7 to 12.9 inches (to fit popular tablets including Microsoft Surface Pro and iPad Pro), reducing the need for added equipment while giving people the freedom to choose the best device for them. The twist lock feature secures a tablet of any size in this range and rotates easily between landscape and portrait mode.
