Utah State University’s new Sorenson Legacy Foundation Center for Clinical Excellence needed to outfit its four floors with all new office furniture. Jacoby Architects out of Salt Lake City, Utah, designed the new offices, conference rooms, clinical patient and therapy rooms, classrooms, café, and collaborative areas.

Jacoby Architects collaborated with HON dealer, Workspace Elements to find attractive, modern office choices at prices that matched their tight furniture budget.

According to Jacque Todd, Account Manager, HON’s complete product offering, value pricing and lifetime warranty was the perfect fit for Utah State. “Also unique to this project was the fact that Jacoby wanted to match the laminates on the desking, storage and conference tables to the laminate in the building – and HON was able to accommodate that request.” Todd also said HON, “not only has one of the best warranties in the industry, but they are the easiest to work with when needing to call on that warranty.”

Tawny Weaver, Interior Design Project Coordinator at Jacoby said of HON, “We knew we were going to receive great customer service when we chose HON. But as the project progressed, we truly appreciated how hands-on and supportive the HON team and the Workspace Elements team were.”

Weaver emphasized that Flock and Endorse were the two collections that inspired them. “We used both lines throughout the building.” In addition, Abound Workstations were used within the classroom to form private break-out rooms for children to step into. “Kids could close Abound’s sliding door for less distraction and one-on-one interactions with teachers.”
