What We Do
EdgeQuarters provides the perfect design, procurement, and installation solution for quickly-growing companies.
We have designed and sourced furniture for millions of square feet of office space throughout the country over the last nine years. The ancillary furniture, wallpaper, etc. that we procure is largely sourced from the residential design world. We use dozens of different vendors, which allows us to create unique, layered, non-corporate spaces for our clients.
The EQ team will work with you to help design a space that your employees will love to work in. No need to staff an entire internal real estate department—EQ handles the entire process from start to finish. All you have to do is move in!
Creating beautiful office spaces of 5000+ square feet for under $25/square foot.
EdgeQuarters is disrupting the way commercial furniture is sourced and environments designed. In the past, a project’s architecture firm would select one furniture dealer, who was aligned with one of the four major furniture systems brands (Herman Miller, Knoll, Steelcase, or Allsteel). That dealer would then choose all of the desks and ancillary furnishings in the office.
EQ has relationships with all dealers and major brands throughout the U.S.
Those relationships enable us to get the best combination of products for the customer (sometimes that means, for example, a chair from Herman Miller and a desk from Three H) at the best possible prices. Additionally, by sourcing most of the ancillary furniture from residential vendors, we are able to contain costs and to retain the ability to design much more interesting and varied workspaces.
Discuss the space, necessary components thereof, budget, and desired outcome. Review floor plan with architecture team. Work together to create cohesive theme.
Put together a Look and Feel concept and proposed floor plan layout. Once edited/approved, present specific furniture plan and spreadsheet with line items and costs.
Get client feedback and make adjustments as necessary. EQ provides client a spreadsheet detailing each item that will be ordered.
EQ team places furniture orders 16-20 weeks before the desired installation date.
EQ team manages delivery of all items to a nearby warehouse. Any missing or damaged items are replaced/exchanged as soon as possible.
EQ team goes onsite to place furniture, accessorize your space, and make any adjustments necessary.
You move in!
The layout of your workspaces not only reflects your company’s culture, it informs it.
As in any interior design endeavor, the choices you make at the outset will determine the way the space is most likely to be utilized in the future. Do you want your staff to be more collaborative? Do more independent functions require greater levels of privacy? Who needs to communicate with whom on a regular basis? What are the unique needs each staff level has, in terms of physical environment?
Design, in its broadest sense, is the enabler… Design means being good, not just looking good. — Clement Mok
At EdgeQuarters, we realize that office space layout is much more than CAD drawings, statutory requirements, and accommodation standards; it’s about interaction, access, and flow. Ideally, the layout of your firm’s workspace is a tangible reflection of your unique mission and process. And we have both the knowledge and the experience to help you get it right.
I never design a building before I’ve seen the site and met the people who will be using it. — Frank Lloyd Wright
It is this same, organic approach to design that EdgeQuarters has adopted as our own. Let us assist you by applying our expertise to your next project. The result will be less stress for you, and a more productive, happier, and more fluid workplace for your staff.
What is “aesthetic conceptualization?” In short, it’s the process of imagining what your workspace will look like, and how it will feel. It’s the place where function and form meet art.
Again, rather than “reinventing the wheel,” we’ll refer to those who preceded us in defining the design process:
Design is an expression of the purpose, and it may (if it is good enough) later be judged as art. — Charles Eames
Once the traffic flow, communication patterns, and space requirements have all been accounted for, we still need to make things look right. What colors, patterns, and textures further the desired workplace ambience? How can we use these elements both to reflect and perpetuate the culture that makes your company distinctive, and makes it work?
Procurement and Purchasing
With EdgeQuarters you can continue to focus on your business and trust us to handle every last detail of your new space. We will:
Order all items you have selected.
We pay every vendor directly and you just get one invoice to pay, ours! Instead of managing orders with dozens of different companies, you only need to deal with one.
Get you the best pricing.
Because of the volume of business we do, we have access to incredible pricing on everything from workstations to sofas, fabrics to lighting.
Stay on top of deliveries.
Delivery schedules can overwhelm even those who are supremely prepared and organized. EQ will make sure that every vendor has all the information necessary to make that process goes as smoothly as possible: COIs, addresses, contact phone numbers, best times for deliveries, elevator/stair requirements, etc.
Manage all order-related issues.
Trust us, most office managers are not used to dealing with so many retail orders at one time, on top of all of their other responsibilities. We handle every back order, return, and exchange that arises.
