Office Systems & Furniture
The current university purchasing policy states that all furniture purchases require the approval of Facilities Management. Facilities Engineering and Development (FED) provides fire and building code confirmation, in addition to design, layout, set standards, and arrange for tenders and/or quotations for the installation of these office systems and furniture.
Delivery of new office systems and furniture typically takes 6-8 weeks from receipt of the departmental purchase order. Each workstation is designed to optimize the existing floor space with various components used to fit the space required. Therefore, FED will review the space before completing the design, drawing, estimates, and tender.
Written requests for new office systems (e.g. freestanding modular workstations, fabric panel office workstations), furniture, or redesign of existing office systems must be made to FED via the project request form.
