If you are purchasing a new suite of workstations, you want the office furniture installation process to go as quickly and smoothly as possible. That way, employee productivity won’t be seriously impacted. Here are several steps you can take to ensure that things go well.
Measure, Plan, Double Check
When you go through the free space planning consultation stage, having accurate measurements is essential. Remember that the location of everything from doors to built in casegoods and electrical outlets may affect whether your office furniture can actually fit where you want it. To avoid last minute changes, walk through your office space and double check your space plans against the actual area in question before finalizing your furniture order.
Get Your Contractors Working Together
If you are having cubicles installed that are designed with raceways to hold electrical wires and data cables, this affects the set up time. All your contractors should be on the same page regarding who does what when. Your office space planning specialist can advise you on the most effective layout to minimize the amount of wiring/cabling required to support all your workstations.
Prepare the Space
Although the installers will clean up thoroughly after their work is done, it’s always nice to start out with a clean space. When you are preparing for the delivery of new office furniture, this is the ideal time to have carpeted areas steam cleaned and spot treated to remove stains. That way, the whole work space will look new.
