DALLAS--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Connectrac announced today its inclusion in a “Living Office” retrofit project at Intereum Inc. Located in Plymouth, Minnesota, Intereum is the only furniture dealer certified by Herman Miller in the entire state. Their multi-faceted services, ranging from corporate and government offices to educational and medical facilities create not only spaces where tasks can be completed, but also environments that one can enjoy and thrive in. This type of innovation earned Intereum a spot on The Star Tribune’s Top 100 Workplaces list.
The company initiated a project to renovate their headquarters to create an adaptable, multi-purpose Living Office. The variety of the workspace made for a challenge to input cable management for power and data connectivity to every workstation.
Intereum Selects Connectrac Cable Management Solutions to Bring Its Living Office to Life
Living Office is a proprietary approach and methodology developed by Herman Miller that provides research-based principles and insights on the design and activation of place. With a multitude of purposeful settings, Intereum’s layout maximizes employees’ opportunities to accomplish work goals in a variety of fashions. The different layouts within a Living Office include the privacy of a workstation to achieve individual assignments to open area spaces for collaborating with co-workers or clients. In all parts of the office, Intereum needed to have power and data cable management available and convenient for every employee.
The company wanted a sleek and affordable option for connectivity that matched their reputation for innovation they had acquired over the last decade, leading them to select Connectrac Wireways. The companies’ relationship spans back nearly a decade, close to the time the two originated. Connectrac is considered their standard in cable management for power, data and telecommunications over core drilling, trenching and power poles.
“When you go with core drilling, it’s more expensive, you deal with more construction, and you have a lot of disruption and distraction,” Principal of Intereum, Matt Sveen, said. “And we just don’t go with power poles for obvious aesthetic reasons.”
The Intereum installation team installed the patented Connectrac In-Carpet Wireways into their Living Office. The uniqueness of the workspace’s layout presented an interesting design, but the malleability of Connectrac created no issues throughout the project. Each open area along with all of the workstations was provided with proper cable management and power connectivity, bringing the Living Office to life.
“The services and delivery came in right on time,” Sveen said. “It’s a simple, clean solution. It was easy to use and went in without a hitch!”
Intereum’s excellence has only increased with the completion of its Living Office. At their headquarters, any work environment one may prefer is now available. “Intereum has worked with us nearly since our company began,” Steve Batchelder, Connectrac Director of Sales, said. “It has been amazing to see their growth into one their region’s premiere companies for office renovation and reconfiguration. With their new offices coming into shape, there’s no telling where Intereum will go from here.”
Intereum was formed in 2004 with the merger of Facility Systems Inc. and WorkXite creating Minnesota's premier full service office environment dealership located in Plymouth, Minnesota. Intereum, Herman Miller's only Certified Dealer in Minnesota, is consistently ranked by Herman Miller as one of its top dealers nationally regarding sales and service excellence, customer satisfaction, and progressive business practices. Intereum has grown to be a top regional choice for office renovation, reconfiguration, and completely new office environments.
