How hard can this be? What could go wrong?
For decades we have listened to you, sympathetically, about your remodels gone wrong, far over budget and way past deadline. We have shared your pain. And after 20 years here it was our time. We needed to reconfigure the warehouse and office layout to catch up with the 21st Century.
Well, let me share our pain. Everything just seemed to be late, seemed to be over budget, and if I heard it once, I heard it 100 times, “Oh, by the way (long pause), I forgot to mention…”
But in candor, I am exaggerating a bit. We have a great bunch of people working on our project, and all will turn out great, far better than before. And what a perfect time to do it. While we toyed with the idea of giving our office a remodel for several years, always finding one reason or another to continue putting it off, along came 2020 and the ensuing pandemic. After adjusting to the new business climate and realizing we would be sitting on a little extra downtime, we finally went ahead with it. This also gave us an opportunity to not only get new furniture and freshen up the walls, the carpet, the flooring, etc. but also to reconfigure our new work desks to adhere to new social distancing guidelines.
Our new work desks are using many of our own parts too, which you might enjoy seeing in action.
We are including electric adjustable table legs, an under-desk “invisible” wireless charger, some of our popular wire managers for various under-desk cable management purposes, and our pencil tray and purse hook bag holder. More info to follow on panel brackets and privacy screens to be used.
Electric table legs allow you to mix up your work day by turning your ordinary work desk into a standing desk, good for blood flow, attentiveness, and efficiency. As they say, “sitting is the new smoking” and we aim to change that by breaking the routine and traditional office norms.
We offer a number of other hardware accessories that you might find useful in repurposing your office space during your own remodel as we all begin to return to the office and manage our workload between the office and at home. For those that are not heading back to the office just yet, see also some of our recent blogs on how to set yourself up for success in your own WFH space.
