20 workstation cubicles available to UK departments

Due to a renovation, ​20 Steelcase electricity/data-enabled cubicles, with built-in desks, file cabinets, and overheads will be available (originally installed in 2000). The cubicles are scheduled to be removed the week of SEPTEMBER 19, 2016, and that is when departments would have to take delivery of them.

Cubicles have built-in desks and electricity. The existing configuration is below, but there could be other possibilities as well, as they are somewhat modular.

Receiving departments would only have to pay for the trucking from Hardymon to their location (and installation, if applicable, which would need to be arranged IN ADVANCE.)
