MODULAR FURNITURE MANAGEMENT PROJECT --- US ARMY WALTER REED HIV PROJECT
The US Army Walter Reed HIV project located in Abuja, Nigeria took over the former offices of the US Centers for Disease Control offices in Abuja, Nigeria in 2007. By 2011, the project offices were busting at the seams and had outgrown the modular furniture configuration it inherited from CDC. The problem was money --- there wasn't any for new furniture. But the furniture from the TOS Collection by Teknion was in impeccable condition. Could the Walter Reed folks make due with their existing furniture but have it redesigned and reconfigured to meet its expanded personnel requirements? They called on T4 to do a redesign and reconfiguration of the entire office space. T4's management staff used its first class Nigerian subcontractor to assist with tearing down and reconfiguring the furniture. Within no time, the T4's original design was alerted on the fly and a new new modified design was used to create even more workstations for this important customer. Working 12 to 14 hours a day, T4 and its Nigerian sub-contractor were able to finish the job in time for the openning of business on Monday morning. T4's experience demonstrated once again that experience and understanding of the work environment we operate in saves the US Government and the US Taxpayer money --- no downtime, no loss of productivity or work days.
