ABOUT THE PROJECT
Hudson County Community College is a dynamic, diverse and active community college serving a high-density and ethnically diverse population in New Jersey. Spring 2011 saw its largest-ever graduating class and the fall brought record-breaking enrollment to the college. The facilities staff has been taking this growth seriously, with major new additions to the campus. When a new building was going up that would include classrooms, a library and a collaboration area, dealer WB Wood was brought in. They met with the architect and representatives from the school and decided that SitOnIt Seating could address the school’s many needs.
WHAT MADE THE DIFFERENCE?
SitOnIt Seating has a state contract that means the company could present solutions from its many collections for the college’s new additions. SitOnIt Seating ended up furnishing the collaboration areas, conference rooms, private offices and library – including the computer labs.
Amplify was a great solution for faculty offices, conference and meeting rooms and the computer labs. The style, textile flexibility and comfort were key factors in making this selection.
For classrooms, the school chose InFlex because of its comfortable flex back and the small scale with or without arms. In sit tests, including with the Head of School, facilities staff and faculty, the chair’s comfort got high marks. The school chose multiple colors to help identify different areas within classrooms. And with smart coordination, the installation and the
move-in was flawless.
The school loves the new look and feel of its new seating. It’s likely this project will lead to another installation in another building as the college grows. And SOI is excited to be part of the growth.
