RECYCLING & WASTE MANAGEMENT


workstations with 64” high panels. However, in 2005, due to the growth of the company, CI required 10% more capacity within their space. And because the Inscape furniture system is designed to be flexible, CI was able to adjust the size of the workstation footprints to 7’ x 8’, and decreased panel heights to 51”. Twin-Bin storage was also introduced to accommodate binder storage in the lower panels.


CI continued to grow, and in 2011, needed to relocate to a larger space entirely. In consideration of the firm’s environmental impact, they opted to re-use the existing Inscape system again instead of purchasing all new furniture. The furniture system was dismantled, moved to the new facility, and reconfigured to reflect the trend towards more open, collaborative workstations.


A fresh and modern aesthetic was created for the space. Panel heights were lowered to 37” and up-mounted frosted glass panels were added to create a more open environment that promotes collaboration. New tapered trims replaced the radius-style trims, and tiles were updated in a white finish to help create a more modern aesthetic. Bookcase units with sliding doors saved space and replaced the shelves and overhead bin storage.


Inscape’s system helped CI become more flexible as the company grew over the years. The product components allowed for a quick and easy reconfiguration to create a fresh and modern look with no sacrifice to functionality. All that was needed was an updated furniture refacing to complete the aesthetic of the new office.


Today, CI is continuing to re-use the system products they started purchasing 20 years ago. They continue to evolve their workspace to address current work styles and are in the process of converting Inscape’s systems product into ‘bench-type’ applications which are more open and linear. Their employees are loving the latest changes that are enhancing collaboration within their teams.


Results: Economic and environmental savings By reusing existing Inscape products with some new components, instead of purchasing completely new workstations, CI Financial was able to realise significant environmental and economic results:


1. Approximately 95% of the product from 950 workstations were re-used


2. Of the 5% of product that was not re-used, 90% was recycled so that only a minimal amount was diverted to landfill


3. These sustainable environmental practices saved CI Financial $2,375,000 CAD (£1,500,000)


Inscape prides itself on flexibility and re-use of its furniture systems in the workplace environment. Reusing existing components enables re-use rather than disposing of products in landfills or recycling depots. CI Financial invested in Inscape’s furniture system in 1999 – and 20 years later the products are still in use. This Canadian case study is a true win-win situation from both resource utilization and product disposal perspectives.
