  • Ramius Corporation

    High Tech

    High Style

    OBJECTIVE

    When you deliver innovative, web-based social networking and online community software to customers such as NASA and the World Bank,

    you need to conduct business at a  level of sophistication that meets or exceeds their expectations. So the CEO of Ramius himself worked with the design team to ensure that the new office plan and furniture selection met a high international standard of function and styling.

     

    The interior designer created a visually compelling environment that is as striking as it is enabling. Staff work in a dynamic open space

    that encourages creative interaction while additional rooms provide bright private places for focused group and client activity. MultiStations OS provides the critical foundation for this innovative space.

     

    SCOPE

    20 MultiStation OS units

    OBJECTIVE

    durability. And with wall mounted hutches and tackboard panels, the visual appeal and work surface functionality were further heightened.

  • Jarvis Engineering

    A Room with a View

    Maximizing Function and Impact

    OBJECTIVE

    This successful electrical engineering firm was moving into an open office environment and wanted to maintain an open feeling; achieve a clean, modern look for the interior design, and take advantage of stunning window views of

    the mountains. It was important to have a sustainable, reconfigurable solution with ample work-surface area for staff to lay out drawings and have easy access storage at each workstation.

     

    The challenge was to design private work areas in a collaborative setting that permitted concentration on work tasks while allowing the window views to be in the background without

    distraction. Two MultiStations OS panels, in 7 inch height increments, stacked on the main 29 inch panel created just the right height to accomplish this. And the partial hutch shelf with tack-board, while being functional, also provided separation of individual workstations.

     

    SCOPE

    14 MultiStations OS workstations

  • North Bay Regional Health Centre

    HOK - Designed Hospital Opens

    with Three H Furniture for All Managers and Technicians

    Multi-Use Product

    Three H won the tender to provide office furniture in all managerial and technical areas in private, shared and open plan offices. From the CEO and all management offices to physician work-areas, clinical records, pharmacy, library, emergency, diagnostic imaging, labs, and clinical desking.

     

    Easily Reconfigured Product

    Three H had become the standard in the previous hospital buildings not only because of the warm aesthetics in product styling, but because the product could be easily reconfigured when staff moved or the function of the space changed.

     

    Futurity of Product

    The hospital was drawn to the attractiveness of Three H product - it significantly helps reduce the sterile, institutional look of spaces. Further more, the hospital can always add product in the future that will match up.

     

    Customization

    The hospital needs to customize desk sizes to spaces for maximum efficiency and flexibility. The CEO's office features a wall mounted hutch and tack-board for example. The flexibility Three H provides will be extremely important as the new space evolves over time.

     

    Scope:

    560 Workstations and Desks

    The New Professionalism

    Distinguished, Classic AND Progressive

    OBJECTIVE
    When your physical office environment

    becomes a key component of your recruitment

    strategy for professional staff, you know you selected the right furniture.

     

    Sullivan Cotter, a leading health care compensation and human resource

    management consulting firm in the United

    States, systematically reviewed five leading

    furniture manufacturers to standardize their offices across the country.

    The Dream Plant

    Sodecia GTAC in London, Ontario

    Sodecia GTAC is a global full-service supplier of specialized manufacturing solutions, with a focus on the automotive industry. Their London, ON based Global Tech & Automation Center (GTAC) builds robotic cells and complete manufacturing lines for internal and external customers, as well as providing engineering and training support. Recognizing the outstanding efficiency of its London operations, Sodecia decided to consolidate GTAC work in a new facility. For Director Chris Hurley, it was the opportunity to “build my dream plant”.

    An Engineering Culture

    Endri Poletti Architect prepared the overall design, then invited three firms including POI to participate in the tendering process. Judging that it would best meet Sodecia’s desired quality and price points, and its clean modern lines would complement the company’s engineering culture, POI proposed Three H to supply the office furniture. “We took representatives from Sodecia and Poletti to tour the Three H showroom. It was important for the client to see, touch, experience a wide variety of products.”

    Custom Product with Three H

    Following this visit, Three H designed for Sodecia a custom six-station work pod, with spacious desks, glass dividers, and modules combining filing cabinets with seating. Hurley recalls, “Three H gave us these great custom pods for a reasonable price. And POI was very helpful, building a mock-up in their office so we could see what it would really be like.”

    Custom Service with POI

    Sourcing primarily from Three H, with selected pieces from other partners, POI installed all the office furniture for Sodecia’s dream plant, including 12 private offices, 50 work stations, meeting room and auditorium tables and chairs. Both the client and architect praise POI’s professionalism and responsiveness.

    “A Beauty”

    “They backed up their products. Any issues, they fixed immediately. They were amenable to suggestions. They just delivered.” Furnishings aside, the plant is a beauty. The manufacturing shop is spacious, efficient, and clean. Employees enjoy the gym, games room, cafeteria and outdoor patio. Every room is flooded with natural light. And a live green wall breathes oxygen into the soaring entry hall.

    The new plant has been open for just eight weeks. But already it sends a clear message.

    “It tells employees we care about them. It shows customers that we are investing in the future.

    It feels sleek and sharp, like wearing a suit!”

    When asked about the biggest benefit of the new office space, Chris Hurley doesn’t hesitate.

     “My people are happy.”
