Levitate Furniture Lift Provides Carpet Installation Savings For Offices Requiring Reconfiguration

Many companies are faced with the need to change their office environments due to Covid-19. Research demonstrates this has involved a combination of short and long-term fixes aimed at reconfiguring areas to protect employees, which includes design changes to ensure safe collaboration when required. This will also often dictate a change in flooring installation requirements.

According to a recent article by Gensler, in response to the Covid-19 pandemic new types of office spaces are emerging in terms of design and functional requirements. The article says, “As we plan for this new normal, workplace resilience will require greater organizational intelligence, multidisciplinary planning, effective change management, and strategic design.” As the pandemic continues, the office will change as we know it. “As the office becomes more of a collaboration hub, planning will evolve from a space-by-desk basis in order to account for the higher ratio of collaboration-driven work that’s expected to bring people back into the office.”

Levitate is an office lifting system which enables Darwin Fisher to re-carpet occupied office areas without the need to remove any furniture when reconfiguring an office area. This solution offers significant savings in time, cost and eliminates lags in office productivity.

Levitate: Cost Savings in Excess of 50%

The associated manpower and skill needed for set up and take down is substantial. Re-carpeting an office area typically entails complex organization and a long list of cost considerations:

  • specialist furniture dismantling
  • removal teams
  • telephone engineers
  • computer technicians
  • storage
  • staff relocation
  • downtime

All of these costs are eliminated with Levitate. The reason? Levitate is a series of custom designed mechanical tools which are placed underneath any type of office furniture to lift it smoothly and safely. The furniture goes up effortlessly and the carpet gets installed properly.

“This is made possible by Levitate’s ‘no jolt’ screw system which raises furniture off of the ground in one smooth, controlled and safe motion,” explains McDonald. “A traditional refit often requires the services of numerous teams of different contractors. We ensure the entire job is handled by one professional Darwin Fisher team that provides a reliable and coordinated and safe approach.”
