Implementing Flexible, Adjustable-Height Workstations
Dec 19th, 2013 by I-SV Host

SUNING selects Indoff-Silicon Valley as their commercial interiors supplier.

Height Adjustable Desk - Initial Delivery 3 Days after Order

Height Adjustable Desk – Initial Delivery 3 Days after Order

SUNING, the largest privately held Chinese firm recently opened their first USA based operations, a Research and Development Center in Palo Alto California.  Their first office is a starter facility, designed to establish a base of operations for planned growth.  So their furniture had to provide for the needs of the startup staff, accommodate the host of visiting guests and potential employees, and be flexible for relocation as staff grew and their new, larger facility is prepared.

Indoff-Silicon Valley was retained by SUNING to transform SUNING’s initial business furniture layout plan into US products that could be acquired quickly given the tight “time-to-open” schedule and quality requirements.  Plus, SUNING needed a supplier that felt completely comfortable translating back and forth between Chinese and English – both for language and measurements.

Height-Adjustable Workstations – the first priority

When SUNING’s space became available for move in, the first priority was new employee work stations, planned to be adjustable height tables served by a power/data grid spine-divider.  Indoff-Silicon Valley was able to provide the adjustable height workstations, in SUNING’s color scheme, 3 days after receipt of order.  So SUNING’s initial staff had places to work fast.

Indoff-Silicon Valley provided electrically adjustable work stations with C-Legs, (white work surface and silver legs) to accommodate different staff needs, help avoid the risks of prolonged sitting, and promote standing staff interaction/collaboration.

Each table has four user defined pre-set heights so that height changes between low & high are consistent for different staff (plus a display shows work surface inches from the floor as a guide for placement).  Throughout the day, as workers change heights, they reduce fatigue and have an overall increase in work performance (validated by a 2004 Intel Corporation Study).
