The AIUM Training Center Project
We recently completed one of the largest projects we’ve done in the past few years. The American Institute of Ultrasound in Medicine, or AIUM, is committed to advancing safe and effective use of ultrasound in medicine. The AIUM is a multidisciplinary professional association dedicated to advancing its mission by providing education, fostering best practices, and facilitating research.
Last year the tenant moved out of the building they own in Laurel, and they decided to completely gut and re-design the tenant space. They wanted to create their own training space on site, so they didn’t have to rent hotel training rooms for their clients. They also needed cubicles, private offices, training rooms, and reception room furniture for their own employees.
For the cubicles we used Open Plan’s Razor System . The Razor System creates a modern designer look at value pricing. These stations all had sit-to-stand desks and personal storage lockers. In the training areas we used COE’s Armless Flex Back Nesting Chair with a flex back that makes them super comfortable.
In the training rooms, we used COE’s Training Tables by Office Source, which fold and nest. They needed power on these tables, so we supplied each table with FlexCharge4, a mountable desk top power unit. You can see this unit in some of the attached pictures. This was the trickiest part of the whole project because the tables need to be movable, but they also need power. We “daisy-chained” the power from table to table with the ability to unplug each table as the room is reconfigured.
For the private executive offices we turned to OfficeSource’s OS Laminate Collection . Each office has a sit-to- stand conferencing desk, a hutch, and something really new – a magnetic glass white board.
OfficeSource CoolMesh Pro Collection was used for seating. This chair allows you to adjust to different tasks throughout the day.
Finally, for the Executive Conference Room we used Safco’s Mirella Collection conference table, which adds a sleek and modern industrial look, especially when combined with Office Source’s Studio Collection Mid Back Chair with Caresoft covering. Despite supply chain and delivery challenges due to COVID, we were able to complete this project on schedule. All those challenges were overcome, and the client is very happy with their beautiful new offices and training center.
