A Smooth Office Transition with a Modern Outcome
PROJECT: A growing medical distributor creates a modern, collaborative workspace.
After 50 years in business, this medical technology distributor had outgrown their footprint. Conference space, in particular, was limited. It was time to move to a more appropriate workplace where they could meet more effectively as a team. As a medical device company, it was also necessary to convey a modern brand identity to their clients.

MTG brought a full team of project management and design resources to address the full scope of this project. They reviewed several options with the company to find the right solution: simple, quick, modern technology that was intuitive and easy to use. MTG would provide:

  • Upgraded data infrastructure
  • Physical security including an intrusion alarm, access control and video surveillance
  • Audio/visual systems that included sound masking and high-tech hybrid meeting capabilities throughout their space

The new office was in a recently renovated commercial space in Northeast Minneapolis. MTG collaborated closely with the principal architect, a construction contractor and an IT implementation firm throughout the project. MTG helped the medical device company move into a sub-leased warehouse and set up a temporary data infrastructure to enable a smooth transition with no lapses.  Unexpected challenges often arise with complicated endeavors like this one. Because the new space was a historical building, environmental concerns could have resulted in delays. However, MTG managed the timeline to meet the targeted deadline.

“Moving the data infrastructure without a hiccup was a huge challenge, but this project went very smoothly,” said Travis Linn of MTG. “We worked collaboratively with the contractor to hit the deadlines and with the property manager to be sure they met the guidelines.” The collaboration was a success, and the project partners asked MTG to be a part of their next project.

Feedback from the client was positive. They valued having one partner address all their technology needs in the new space. They were able to spend less time worrying about changes to their new facility and focus on their growth. Today, the new workspace is an engaging new environment for their team as they continue to expand their business.
