Non-Faculty Furniture Levels and Standards

The following standards are based on two presumptions:

    1. The office to be furnished is empty

    2. There is sufficient spacing to accommodate a u-shaped workstation, and additional

    furniture as needed for each level.

While large spikes in furniture prices are not common, these figures should be revisited on an

    annual basis to assess price increases and any changes in market conditions.

Each section has an “a la carte” section listing a component price range. In some cases, the

    minimum amounts will be significantly less than the recommendation. This is due to the

    variances between furniture lines. In some cases, it will make sense to explore the least-

    expensive option, but in other offices, doing so would clash with existing standard for the office

    and not be appropriate. The ranges have built-in flexibility to allow for the diversity of the College. Please note that each of the brands presented are for suggestion purposes only, and other

    comparable brands and vendors exist in each price range.

The following levels are recommended:

Level 1: Standard - $2,550 max.

The “standard level” includes all staff members who do not fit into the other categories. This

    budget amount will allow for the purchase of a U-shaped workstation, task chair, and one guest

    chair.

A La Carte (recommended range)

    Workstation $1,200 - $2,000 Task Chair $290 - $350 Guest Chair $85 - $200

Level 2: Standard Plus - $4,000 max

“Standard Plus” refers to those staff members in a director or supervisory role. These are a “step

    up” from the standard level, and contain the expectation that additional furniture is required (such

    as guest chairs and additional storage).

Level 3: Executive Assistant - $6,000 max

“Executive Assistant” refers to the administrative assistants and staff that report to executives.

    These furniture lines are designed to be high quality and reflect the prestige that goes with the

    office they serve. This would allow for the purchase of a workstation, guest chairs, and storage

    options.
