Designing a Safer Office | Article in EXHIBITOR Online

March 4th, 2021 COMMENTS

This week, EXHIBITOR Magazine published an article about an open-office redesign by Consolidated Displays, a Classic Exhibits Distributor in Pittsburgh.

The Burns Scalo Office Building

Burns Scalo recognized that their tenant’s open-office layout didn’t conform to current CDC recommendations for social distancing and divided workspaces.  Derek Librecht, VP at Consolidated Displays, meet with the company and completed a walkthrough of the office space, taking measurements and noting the layout and obstacles. The final solution included over 30 dividers, all powder-coated to match existing cubical furniture. In addition, cubicle height extenders were added to the office walls to raise the height to 6 ft.

Classic Exhibits was delighted to assist with this project, including renderings, design, and materials. We expect these environmental safety projects will increase significantly over the next 6 months as companies reopen and employees return to their offices.
