The client, a renowned nonprofit educational institution.

The project, designing an upgraded tech lab for higher education.

When our team undertook the transformative project for our esteemed client, a prominent college in the bustling city of Boston, the needs were abundantly clear. The college was determined to bring its technology lab into the 21st century, requiring a comprehensive upgrade of its IT department. At the heart of this endeavor was the quest for cutting-edge furniture solutions, with a specific focus on state-of-the-art tech benches.

The client envisioned tech benches 96 inches in length, arranged back to back, to create a collaborative and innovative workspace. Additionally, they sought tech benches designed in a corner configuration to cater to the requirements of individual rooms. This ambitious vision set the stage for a project that would not only meet but exceed the client's expectations, providing a technologically advanced learning environment for their users.

The solution is a technology table suitable for IT-intensive environments.

Sustema provided an exceptionally versatile solution, perfectly aligning with the college's diverse needs. Our system is designed to adapt seamlessly to a multitude of applications, serving as a service center, scientific and forensic laboratory, staging area, and more. The laboratory configuration, in particular, is a masterpiece of adaptability, featuring a modular design that integrates all essential IT equipment.

At the core of this configuration are single-unit workstations configured side by side. This modular structure allows for limitless customization, with the flexibility to add surfaces and shelves on both sides of vertical posts. The result is a dynamic, multidisciplinary workspace that can be effortlessly reconfigured and expanded to meet evolving requirements.

Cable management is a standout feature of our system. It ensures a neat and efficient workspace, routing power and data cables through the posts and beams. Users can access the equipment with ease, thanks to multiple cable management options, including front access through the accessory support, back access in the power channel, and integrated raceway access via the power raceway channel. This meticulous approach to cable management enhances productivity and underscores the system's adaptability to the college's unique application requirements, making it the ideal choice for a dynamic and future-ready environment.
