How to Design for Space Constraints in Various Workplaces presented by Spacesaver Solutions (1 HS)

Learn how to design for space constraints in a variety of workplaces from the office, to educational institutions, to museums and beyond. This course explores furniture, fixtures, and equipment that contribute to maximizing space through design. This course will provide participants with FF&E solutions that maximize space, are aesthetically pleasing, and contributed to occupant wellness. Participants will learn how functional solutions can be incorporated into a workplace’s design and provide for occupants needs.

Learning Objectives:

  • Understand how today’s design trends are impacting space across various markets and how furniture, fixtures, and equipment can be incorporated to condense storage and maximize space for both new construction and renovation projects.
  • Learn how FF&E can contribute to occupant wellness by integrating ventilation, lighting solutions, and safety features into shelving and storage solutions used in public entities.
  • Combat space planning challenges in design by incorporating solutions customized for bulky stuff storage, where employee and patron ergonomics are accounted for and space utilization is condensed and optimized.
  • Examine space challenges across various markets and learn how different applications of shelving and storage can balance the needs and safety of both your clients’ employees and patrons.

Next Generation of Healthy Surfaces presented by Caragreen (1 HS)

Innovation should bring us together. Surfaces have always mattered and are often the centerpieces of our built environment. With changing requirements of our surfaces, it’s important to understand all these new terms and what they mean for occupant health and safety. Throughout this presentation we will look at different health claims being made in order to help understand how we can innovate with health in mind.

Learning Objectives:

  • What is this new terminology and what does it mean?
  • How will our offices and surfaces change in the future?
  • How will we interact with our spaces?
  • How will we interact with each other?
