  • Industry: IT Solution for the Federal Government

  • Goal: Collabralink had won a government contract and needed to reconfigure 2 spaces inside their current location to accomodate 20 more staff members. They wanted modern, updated, height adjustable stations as opposed to their current out dated tall wall cubicles

  • Project Size: 3,000 Sq. Feet inside 15,000 Sq. Feet offices

  • Challenges: Time was our enemy. We needed to have the stations in before the money was dispersed after the contract was awarded, while still not being cookie cutter, generic stations. As always with rush orders, we had to play the middle man between a company who’s occupation wasn’t project managing furniture purchases an installations and a manufacturer with hundreds of orders at any time. Both the client and the mnaufacturer were helpful and responsive but we assisted the client in understanding not only the design and implementation of a furniture install, but also the myriad add-ons that come with installing furniture, such as permitting, data cabling, removal and disposal of current stations. In one weekend, we removed the clients old stations, installed their new stations and assisted w/ the data cabling vendor and permitting. The Collabralink staff left work on a Friday evening and came back to a new office. As usual with a rush order, parts and pieces were missing and some vital to the station being operational and have electricity. We were able to improvise with temporary fixes on the station electrical and address the complicated punch so the client was never interrupted in their business
