Specifications and Design

All project specifications and installation drawings are computer generated utilizing AutoCAD 2014 and CAP specification software. Typical workstations are developed in both plan view and three-dimensional layouts. Specifications are generated by workstation typicals to assure that all component requirements are met within the individual workstations. Overall installation drawings are labeled to identify size and type of component required.

Product Delivery

Furniture product will ship directly to the job site based on construction completion and/or building availability. We request that our Installation Manager be involved as early as possible in construction meetings to assure that delivery is phased properly. Shipments will be coordinated with the factory to have specific components arrive in the logical order of the installation process (i.e. panels and electrical first, allowing other trades access to complete data and communication wiring before work surfaces and drawers are assembled.) Any damage occurring in shipment will be noted on the shipping documents and replacement product will be ordered within 24 hours.

Installation

Spaces, Inc. has 5 factory certified installers as well as an additional pool of non- skilled labor to supplement the installation process. If requested, Spaces, Inc. will provide a certified instructor on site to train their clients’ employees on how to make reconfiguration adjustments to the furniture.

Punch List Procedures

A walk-through will be scheduled with the Owner, Spaces’ Project Manager, and Spaces’ Installation Manager at the completion of each phase, and punch list items will be completed immediately. If replacement product is required, we will make accommodations with loaner product until replacement product arrives (normally 2-3 weeks).

Asset Management/Storage

Spaces, Inc. offers comprehensive and complete asset management services, supported by specialized software that integrates bar code technology, color digital imagery, and inventory reporting. Having a current inventory of assets and their condition will prevent unnecessary purchases, maximize usage, and help in planning for new furniture purchases. Additionally, our management system can assist in providing data for depreciation schedules, insurance valuation and cost center allocation.
