Typically, during an office relocation, a company needs to hire several different suppliers to make it happen: an interior designer, a mover, and an office furniture dealer, among others. There can be a lot of moving parts when a company’s office manager has to synchronize the efforts of several different suppliers.
A recent project demonstrates how that process works differently at 1 Source Office Furniture. The company’s integrated approach enables them to create the floor plan, product specification and procurement, in conjunction with the actual move. So, with 1 Source, an office manager gets more than just furniture in a planned office move.
When HealthPro decided to move their office from Cockeysville, Maryland to International Circle in Hunt Valley, MD the office manager had to decide which items of furniture would go with them, which would be replaced with new, and many more decisions such as who would handle the actual move. HealthPro chose 1 Source Office Furniture in Phoenix, MD to design the new office, to provide refurbished Haworth cubicles, and to specify and procure new furniture for several of the company’s private offices.
HealthPro also hired 1 Source Office Furniture to move the firm’s existing furniture and private office files to make everything hassle-free on moving day. In doing so, HealthPro knew exactly what all of its costs were up front because they were all handled by 1 Source Office Furniture. “The HealthPro move was unique in that we were asked to integrate our new products with some of their existing furniture,” explains Laurie Rosen, vice president of 1 Source. She adds, “In this process, we were able to help our client figure out what has and has not worked for them in the past, and to supplement with new furnishings, such as sit-to-stand desks and a beautiful new conference table by LogiFlex.”
In the open area, refurbished Haworth workstations allowed for modern, light-filled offices for approximately 20 employees. With 66-inch height panels, the workstations have a balance of privacy and openness.
“Much of the success of a new office buildout is due to how well the furniture looks and fits within each area,” says owner Marc Rosen, who has more than 36 years in retailing commercial furniture in Maryland. He adds, “I supervise all of our furniture installations so the client doesn’t have to worry about all of the minor details that day.”
Companies that are relocating get to see exactly what their new offices will look like (particularly of open spaces with workstations) via 2D or 3D renderings after the initial consultation with 1 Source Office Furniture.
In addition to the initial office layout and design, 1 Source serves as a project manager for anything related to furniture. That can mean attending construction meetings, coordinating deliveries with the building manager, and coordinating with subcontractors to ensure a successful office build-out.
