Farmington School District embarks on new project to create collaborative spaces. ODP Business Solutions™ Workspace Interiorshelped the district take full advantage of the unused spaces, transforming them into special areas for everything from teamwork to quiet reading. With some of the district’s buildings dating back to the 1940s, the administrators try to optimize areas that are underutilized. Administrators chose Warner Middle School as the first facility for the new collaborative spaces. Particularly for this school, the new spaces would give students and staff additional working areas, empowering everyone to gather in new places.
Buying office furniture can be a complicated process.
Gilbert School District prides themselves on educational opportunities and a wide variety of programs and extracurricular activities. From athletics and enrichment to gifted education and theatre, their spread of programs is impressive – so they also needed impressive facilities! These facilities also include some custom seating designed just for Gilbert USD.
Every space needs furniture to be functional. Without desks, your students can’t learn comfortably. Without cubicles, your employees can’t have their own workspace. Without dorm furniture, your university students can’t live on campus. Workspace solutions and interiors are the foundation of the functionality of agencies, schools, and universities.
Do you ever feel like you are putting together a 1,000-piece puzzle when you are working on major projects? As a procurement professional you are expected to put the pieces together and provide solutions for multiple end-users and make sure they are the right fit. On top of this, you are most likely under a major time crunch, adding even more pressure and preventing you from dedicating the appropriate attention to each piece of the puzzle.
Whether it be the pandemic, coursework, social schedules, or simply a lifestyle change, students need space to decompress. Because of this, universities and schools are beginning to revamp spaces in order to provide students with areas that will help reduce anxiety and allow for stress-relieving activities like yoga, scripture studies, or personal reflection.
As research continues to surface regarding the correlation between classroom design and student performance, it’s the perfect time to explore why this is the case. For students, parents, and educators alike (as well as those responsible for creating the spaces in which individuals learn), having a clear concept of how an environment can impact personal development and performance is vital. Not only are flexible and responsive furniture items like ergonomic classroom chairs, adjustable storage elements, and modular student desks changing the way that students experience learning, they’re also pushing forward the boundary of what students are capable of.
