Opportunity

Lakeshore Recycling Systems wanted to add more seating to their current space to accommodate new employees.  They also asked for suggestions on how to implement more effective social distancing practices.

Solutions

OFR met with Lakeshore Recycling, measured the space and provided a 2D layout of 29 new cubicles. We were able to fully customize their space with our QuickAnswer Standard Series.  They selected a 48″x66″ cubicle footprint with coalition ice fabric, solar black trim, and a premium laminate for the desks.  We added framed, clear glass dividers from Partsco to the top of each cubicle to comply with social distancing guidelines.  The end result is sustainable, recyclable, and aligns with Lakeshore Recycling Systems company goals.
