Financial Institutions
Landmark Credit Union

Services:
Space planning, finish/furniture selection, installation and relocation.

Client Needs:
Due to continued growth and success, Landmark Credit Union decided to consolidate its administrative offices from several branches into one more efficient location. Schroeder Solutions was chosen over (12) bidders to run the entire process.

Schroeder’s Solution:
We worked closely with the Landmark team during the space planning process to create a layout that included sufficient space for all current employees and allowed extra space for future staff members. New product, including Teknion Leverage workstations, Paoli private office/conference room furniture and Global Seating was ordered for the 2nd floor space. For their lower level space, Landmark requested that their existing furniture be re-used. As a result, their existing workstations were inventoried, cleaned, disassembled, moved and reinstalled/reconfigured.

Corporate
Buy Seasons

Services:
Space planning, furniture and finish selection, move coordination and installation.

Client Needs:
As the world’s largest internet retailer and supplier for costumes and party supplies, BUYSEASONS, INC. had outgrown its current space and decided to relocate and readdress its office environment. In addition, since the company flexes its staff from 100 to 1,000 employees during peak holiday seasons, BUYSEASONS wanted to create a pleasant work environment that accommodated its fluctuating.

Schroeder’s Solution:
The collaboration between Schroeder Solutions and BUYSEASONS was crucial throughout the programming phase to insure the diverse needs of the employees were addressed. Based on this collaboration, Schroeder Solutions created an undulating layout using 120-degree planning techniques to accommodate the full-time, 100-person staff all year round while also addressing 130-temporary work areas for seasonal activity. Manager work areas were staggered throughout the space to allow the staff to spread out during peak seasons for maximum managerial efficiency.

The design team selected furniture that would provide a flexible and contemporary workspace for this global, innovative business. The project involved a spectrum of our services within tight timeframes and budgets.

"Schroeder Solutions always meets and exceeds our expectations. They are a great, client focused team! We truly have appreciated the partnership that we have shared over the past few years and look forward to continuing to do great things here in New Berlin!"

Higher Education
Herzing University Milwaukee Corporate Office & Nationwide Campuses

Services:
Space planning, workplace design, furniture selection, installation and development of an ongoing buying program.

Client Needs:
Herzing University, an on-line university serving the United States and Canada, selected Schroeder Solutions to assist them in opening a corporate office in Milwaukee as well as subsequent campuses across SE Wisconsin, Florida, Louisiana and Omaha. The goal of each project varied slightly, but the main objective was to maximize real estate while being cost effective and environmentally friendly.

Schroeder’s Solution:
Remanufactured Herman Miller product was selected for the workstation furniture to achieve the client's cost and sustainability objectives. Schroeder Solutions introduced a neutral palette in order to achieve a light and airy appeal.

Not only did Schroeder Solutions provide an economical, environmental and efficient space planning solution, they also helped the client enroll in a special buying program. The E&I (Educational and Institutional) Buyers Program allows Herzing to purchase a variety of office products at a significant savings. The college has already saved thousands of dollars thanks to the Schroeder team.

"Herzing has expanded their online campus and purchased and installed refurbished furniture from Schroeder in an effort to not only save money, but to be environmentally friendly. The designing of the areas was done quickly and extremely well, despite numerous revisions."

Client Needs:
Briggs Engineering Department wanted to update their image in order to support their recruiting efforts. They were looking to create a work environment that appealed to young talent – an interior that reflected their cutting edge technology and their current team of innovative engineers.

Schroeder’s Solutions:
Schroeder Solutions worked with Briggs and Stratton to address space planning and finish selections that would communicate a high tech appeal. The design team opened up the work areas to create a more collaborative configuration.

In an effort to establish consistency, Schroeder Solutions implemented design standards and continues to work on projects throughout the company, including the recently completed HPPG (Home Power Product Group) Build Out. The facility uses Teknion Leverage for the general office areas and Expansion desking for the private offices as well as Milliken modular floor covering throughout.

Services:
Space planning, product specification, and order entry/expediting, installation and relocation services.

Client Needs:
In 2005 Froedtert made the decision to relocate their administrative professionals to a new facility at Woodland Prime in order to promote better efficiency, as well as to create additional space at the hospital for patient care. Since this initial project, Froedtert has added people to their Woodland Prime Facility in both 2008 and 2010.

We then coordinated the phased relocation of personnel from their Wauwatosa Campus as well as other various locations to Woodland Prime.
