We’re basically taking the 10th floor “as is,” which includes a few offices and a lot of open workspace. For the most part, our temporary office is an open work environment, without floor-to-ceiling walls or partitions. We’ll use our current office furniture; Suddath will move our desks, chairs, tables, file cabinets, bookcases, lamps, etc. Suddath will also move our computers. Please don ‘t pack your monitors or computers.
Internet service and capacity will be comparable to what we have now. We don’t anticipate any delays or issues sending data.
We have a break room with a sink, microwave, toaster oven and fridge, but no stove. Rather than packing kitchen wares twice, we’ll use paper products and plastic cutlery until our move to the 11th floor. Yeah, it’s not exactly an environmentally friendly, but you’re welcome to bring your own utensils, plates, bowls, coffee mug and drinking cups to reduce use of paper/plastic products. Keep in mind you’ll have to either hand wash or take them home every day since we don’t have an operational dishwasher.
We’ll have two conference rooms; one room will be outfitted with furniture from the middle conference room, including the conference phone. Plans are in the making on how to furnish the other conference room, since it won’t accommodate our large conference table. Both rooms will have internet access, but we don’t plan to install TVs.
Shepherd is joining the University Club (for modest cost), so if we have new business or client meetings that require a more aesthetic environment, we can arrange to use the club’s meeting space on the 28th floor.
Riverplace Tower maintains the bathrooms, which are located off the elevator lobby. And yes, the bathroom tissue is much improved!
