Dynasound is the oldest Pure sound masking manufacturer in the US. Unlike other brands that started out manufacturing another type of solution or added sound masking to their portfolio, Dynasound has stayed dedicated to our industry and remains solely a sound masking manufacturer today celebrating 40 years this year. We have built our Brand on quality products and people with a dedication to serving our clients and partners at the highest level. Aside from a quality product, our clients gain the assurance that part of process is looking out for their well being by reviewing the project as a performance base not a product.
Designer Kalyn Rothaus has been given the challenge to move 135 employees from a 20,000 square foot space into a much smaller, 11,000 square foot building and make everyone comfortable more productive. So far she’s cleared the new space, framed the walls, installed the floors, and added new windows and doors. In the last show, all the ceiling grids and light fixtures were installed. Now in the second month of construction, it’s time to move to the next phase. In today’s show Kalyn will address the individual private offices. She’s asked Mayline furniture from Wisconsin to present their line of modular ergonomic furniture. It’s also painting week in the work space. Phoenix Painting will be painting all the private offices and the other spaces throughout the building. Kalyn wanted each office to offer a creative way for the employees to express themselves. Finally, Ergotron, will install special ergonomic desk mounts

Mayline is a mid-market office furniture brand. They offer customers a high-quality, designer-friendly solution, but at a price point that will work for most project budgets. In most large and high-profile office furniture projects, the larger, aligned-manufacturers (i.e. Steelcase) will work with their dealers to propose a solution for the customer. These larger, aligned-manufacturers, solutions are often times more than a customer can afford for their entire project – so they are forced to choose. Mayline actually makes that choice a lot easier, by giving them the look and style they would like, but at a price they can afford.
Ergotron was founded by Harry Sweere, an engineer who was witness to the first musculoskeletal issues that workers were facing back in the early 80s. He designed one of the first articulating arms in the industry, was instrumental in publishing the VESA Standards still in use today, and opened the door to height-adjustable computing stations, first in healthcare, and paving the way for the office expansion we are seeing today with the development of Constant Force technology.

Now with the construction issues and all these moving parts happening at the same time it’s always important to keep thinking about the big picture. We’re moving 20 thousand square feet and a large number of employees into a much smaller workspace but the end result needs to be more productivity, a comfortable work environment and happy employees. Kalyn is turning her attention to the ceiling and the interior building lights. Kalyn’s challenge is to create lighting within the building that will both improve the quality of the workspace and be energy efficient. Lighting Designer Alejandro Vargas from Miami Lighting Design Associates and Tom Schumaker and Audey Cash from Acuity Brands Lighting, are working with Sean Browne, Principal Scientist at Armstrong World Industries to design concept and overcome lighting challenges. Kalyn will take an old idea and make it new again with Matt Moulton of Indoor Sky. And we chat
Indoor Sky solves the conflict that exists between shading and daylighting. Maximizing daylight’s penetration into a building while minimizing heat and glare results in reduced energy bills, shorter patient stays, quicker learning, greater productivity, and overall improved occupant comfort and well-being. Matt Moulton from Indoor Sky spent an afternoon with us installing the new office shades.
The low voltage wiring is going in the new building. They are handling all of the complex wiring for the building. Everything from the building management systems, the HCV controllers, the monitors on the wall, and the microphones in the conference room for telepresence. They will compile all the specifications and the needs of each vendor and then figure out how it will actually go in the building. Wiring.com is one of the first contractors to arrive on the job site and one of the last to leave.
Taking a behind the scenes look at lighting design, light fixtures, and controls to build a digital network that ensures everything functions in harmony. Sean Browne, Principal Scientist at Armstrong World Industries along with Tom Schumaker from Acuity Brands Lighting and Alejandro Vargas of Miami Lighting Design figure out a complicated lighting process for the new building. They’ve been tasked by Kalyn to create a really clean lighting approach with perfectly aesthetic lines. Check out the intelligent lighting that SAVES ENERGY. What more can you ask?
