Examples of our work

AIG Project


Canterbury Design

The Canterbury School of Fort Myers, FL was awarded a $75,000 grant from Steelcase, the leader in educational commercial furniture. Office Furniture and Design Concepts (OFDC), the local Steelcase dealer in the area brought the grant opportunity to the school and once they were accepted for the grant, OFDC gave and additional $25,000 to the project.

A team from OFDC as well as Canterbury got together to transform a computer lab in the Middle School which was later coined “The Cougar Den” for the Canterbury Cougars as well as an Upper School, classroom in the High School. OFDC’s team consisted of Ashley Chaffee, Lead Account Executive and Mary Beth Campbell, Director of Design.

Canterbury wanted to totally transform the area and with the funding from both Steelcase and OFDC, they were able to create the first 21st century learning environment in South West Florida. As well as make it a fun space for the kids to learn.

The design process started with forming how teaching was to be done with the space, what the teachers wanted it to facilitate as well as how to make it a multifunctioning area where student could work together or separately. Once that outline was set, Mary Beth put together a 2D space plan that showed where the furniture was to be placed and how it was to fit into the functionality of the space. From there, we picked the flooring, fabrics and paint. Once those selections were made, we sent off the space to get graphically rendered. The team wanted it to be totally different than any other space in the school and they succeeded. The catch with everything is that they wanted it to be a total surprise to the students. OFDC’s team had two days to totally transform the space.

OFDC’s flooring division came in on a Friday morning and ripped up the existing carpet, prepped the floors and laid down the new flooring. Friday afternoon, the furniture was delivered and “staged” for installation on Saturday. On Saturday OFDC’s installation team came and installed the furniture. Entech, installed all the IT equipment and programed the Steelcase technology into the school’s network. By Saturday at 6:00, they were finished for the teacher’s open house on Sunday afternoon. It was a great experience and the best part was seeing the expressions of the kid’s faces on Monday morning.

 

 

 


 

OFDC & Steelcase partner to provide $50,000 to Canterbury


The Infilaw System

Dianne helped with the interior design of the space assisting the client with flooring furniture and paint selections. OFDC laid all the floors which is a mixture of wood, tile and carpet tile as well as broadloom in the offices. OFDC's designer on this project was Mary Beth Campbell. The CEO, Rick stated that he wanted to make a statement that they were unlike any law school but also innovative and cutting edge with how their space interacts with their staff both internally and externally at the law schools. Everything has a purpose and nothing is out of place. Steelcase was used solely as the provider from Coalesse to Montage, to MediaScape. OFDC also provided a solution with a custom conference table from CCN that allows each seat to have an individual video conferencing feed because the face to face contact was important to the CEO with those working remotely.

Recently, OFDC was featured in Gulf Shore Business magazine for our work on InfiLaw Systems as the Interior Designer. Read more here.
