Seating Standards

Office furniture is an integral part to day-to-day operations no matter if you are faculty, staff or a student. As a result of office remodels and new construction on campus, there is a desire to upgrade furniture and bring the overall appearance and function to the level held around campus. To make this process easier, we have implemented the following standards. We strongly believe this will help contribute to a more cohesive campus appearance while maintaining a certain level of quality

Products and specifications listed are typical furniture items used throughout campus.  

Minimum Standards
All products shall comply with ANSI/BIFMA (Business & Institutional Furniture Manufacturers Association) product safety and performance standards and guidelines.

As a standard, fabric grades and finishes shall be selected from mid-priced options, typically
identified as ‘Grade 2 or B’. In specialty areas, higher priced selections will be considered.
When choosing wood tones, choices should be based on creating a coordinated
appearance throughout the facility.

The finishes for standard furniture pieces, such as chairs, are standardized, in order to maximize flexibility throughout campus. Like manufactures should be maintained in similar or adjacent areas.
