A commercial real estate company moved into a new building. Part of that building was three training rooms that were heavy on power and data usage. Power poles, core drilling, and access floors were all very unappealing options because of budget or aesthetic reasons.

Cabling raceway under carpet was chosen as a cost-effective and attractive alternative that provided all the necessary connectivity. The layout of the raceways accommodates existing operable partitions, which add even more functionality to the space.

Architecture Firm Uses Cabling Raceway in Historic Building

An architecture firm moved its headquarters to a new location in a historic building. The design for the new offices called for workstations with ample areas for collaborative work and video conferencing. One of the key challenges faced from the outset was how to bring power/AV/telecom connectivity to these work areas.

Access floors were eliminated because of the cost and the complexity of adding an access floor system to an existing, historic building. Looking for an alternative to access floors, the firm came across cabling raceway under carpet, which solved all of their problems. The cabling raceway enabled us to achieve their design objectives and provide power to their workstations, meeting areas and conference rooms.
