The distribution and asset management division of Kinectrics was tasked with creating a lab control room to execute a variety of customer applications. The new control room is a collaborative space where the engineers from Kinectrics can work directly with the end-users on their projects.
“We had used Sustema for the fit-out and installation of the furniture for our lab workstations. This happened during the COVID pandemic and the work required a bit of coordination and multiple deliveries. I found the support and communication from Sustema to be extremely quick, thorough and helpful. This included follow-ups on documentation associated with the equipment, as well as accounting for every screw and cable management part. We’re very happy with the end result.” - Donal Murray, Senior Engineer
We were approached by Kinectrics to design a technical furniture solution for 6 people within a small room roughly the size of a shipping container. In our introductory meeting we were made aware of the following challenges and needs:
Integrate height-adjustable work stations
The comfort of the engineers and the adaptability of the work stations was a key decision factor
Warranty and durability of the work stations were a key need
Cable Management was required
CPU Storage was required
Personal Storage was required
Access to power was requested on the surface
Seating options were also requested
Once the needs were uncovered we met with our design to come up with a solution and drawing. We concluded that our height-adjustable Focus Series C-200 console could meet the needs of the client. The Focus was perfect for this application as it gives us flexibility and is specifically designed for IT critical environments just like the Kinectrics control room.
Through collaboration with Nick and Garreth and serious consideration of multiple designs, we arrived at the perfect solution. What made our client feel confident was the fact we offered a lifetime warranty, made the consoles fit the room, and provided flexible and professional installation at the height Covid-19 pandemic. Here is what our client had to say about us directly a year after we installed this project.
“Mark was fantastic to work with. We had some changing requirements that came up through project execution and also needed a visit to the showroom to try out the chairs in COVID. Mark was most accommodating of it all. Sustema is excellent to work with. Would definitely recommend them and Mark.” - Garreth Coelho, Business Area Director, Distribution & Asset Management
