See Our Work: Methodist's Shorb Tower

We are excited to show off our latest project with our long-standing client, Methodist Healthcare. We recently completed work on the organization’s Shorb Tower, a $275 million project of more than 500,000 square feet.

For this project we provided products for public use areas such as waiting rooms, lobbies, cafes and consult rooms, as well as conference rooms, office spaces and training rooms for Methodist Associates. The end result is both aesthetically pleasing, durable and functional, which all play a vital role in the overall patient experience.

Products for this project came from some of our favorite manufacturers:

As with most of our client’s projects, we assisted with all aspects of Methodist’s experience, from product and fabric selections to ordering, delivery and installation. We enjoy being a “one stop shop” for our clients; it streamlines their communications and allows us to work most efficiently.

Thank you, Methodist, for our continued partnership! We look forward to the good work you will do in and through the new Shorb Tower!

Office Interiors completes furnishings for Collierville's $94M project

 

Monday morning, Collierville High School students started their 2018-2019 school year in a new, state-of-the-art facility, the largest high school in the state. School leadership retained Office Interiors of Memphis to assist with all of the furniture for the school's administration offices, auditoriums, library, conference rooms, outdoor courtyard and the athletic complex. We are proud of this project and the opportunity to partner with one of our community's greatest assets!

Ranked among the nation’s top schools by U. S. News and World Report and the seventh best school in Tennessee, Collierville High School invested $94 million in the facility, which features a state-of-the-art library with a wall of windows, much wider hallways, a 3,000-seat gymnasium, and even a special walkway to the sports complex. It'll feature an indoor practice facility with artificial turf inside and the new cafeteria will seat a thousand students.

See Our Work: Germantown Athletic Club (GAC)

We recently completed work at the renovated Germantown Athletic Club, a full-service fitness facility located in one of the most desirable communities in the MidSouth.  

As part of GAC's 3 to 4 year renovation, the facility recently renovated the upstairs lobby area, to include an improved lounge area, customer service desk, conference space, and offices. Our Office Interiors team worked closely with the GAC staff and architect to design the space, select the products, order and install to perfection.

The space has already been received well by the community's "Coffee Club" that meets in the lounge space regularly. 

ABOUT GERMANTOWN ATHLETIC CLUB

Established in 1990, the Club was initially designed as a community center offering arts and crafts classes, sports leagues and fee based programs with very little emphasis on fitness. Time passes and trends change drastically which led us to the onset of this astounding renovation.

Germantown Athletic Club is located in the heart of Germantown neighboring the Germantown Performing Arts Center, The Great Hall & Conference Center and Municipal Park. The Club’s variety of amenities and services attracts fitness enthusiasts of all types. Mix fitness with pleasure with any of our group fitness classes, indoor and outdoor pools, the very latest in cardio and strength training equipment and so much more.

GAC is more than a facility with treadmills, kettlebells and pools. Germantown Athletic Club is a place where fitness journeys are made, friendships are cultivated and personal limits are exceeded. They are not one thing to one group, yet they are many things to a variety of people. Whether it’s Coffee Club, a Dive In Movie, our Annual Chill & Grill or a simple 30-minute date with the rowing machine, you will call Germantown Athletic Club your new home away from home.

See Inside: Memphis Teacher Residency

We recently wrapped an exciting new project with Memphis Teacher Residency (MTR) in the new Crosstown Concourse building in Midtown Memphis, Tennessee. 

The project consisted of 19,742 square feet of 4 classrooms, a library, 23 offices, 5 meeting rooms, a teacher lounge, a staff workroom, and several collaboration areas for the 297 teachers that are served through the organization. MTR, which serves 38 schools in six neighborhoods, needed a space that was not only visually appealing, but also functional for the  organization's unique needs. 

Larry Ray Reed

Larry Ray Reed

We sat down with Larry Ray Reed, the Director of Operations & Finance for MTR, to recap his experience with Office Interiors.

Q: What was the main goal when first considering your office furniture strategy? 

A: We wanted our furniture to fit the modern vibe of our space but to also be somewhat timeless.  We didn’t want to look at our furniture in a few years and say “that was so 2017.”  

Q: Were there any trends you knew you wanted to include or avoid? 

A: I should’ve kept a tally board of how many of our staff made it a point to request standing desks.  When we realized that height-adjustable desks were an economical option, we knew we wanted to give this feature to our staff.

Q: Why did you select HON and OFS products?  

A: The brands we chose were really because of Nancy’s recommendation.  I was, however, already a huge fan of HON so I was excited when their products were a part of the proposal.  

Q: What was the easiest part of the office furniture procurement process?  

A: The bid materials they provided to me were top-notch (and far better than what we received as a part of other bids).  The color-coded floor plan and presentation slides made sharing with my colleagues very easy.

Q: Why did you choose Office Interiors? 

A: We got bids from three different companies.  Office Interiors had the quickest turnaround after each meeting and honestly seemed like they wanted to work for our business.  Nancy was super-easy to work with.  I had confidence that she was trying to get us the best deal possible, that she wanted our selections to be as beautiful as they were functional, and that she wanted us to be fully happy. 

Q: Would you recommend a colleague use Office Interiors?  

A: Yes.  And I have.  So many people have walked through our space and commented specifically on our furniture.  I’ve been told over and over again that we have the most comfortable classroom chairs ever.  Our staff and professors love the versatility of our classroom furniture, and you never know just how you might find a room setup.
