Project Profile

“We’re very familiar with the high quality of CiF Lab Solution’s cabinet construction and finish. Both CiF and their dealer Northeast Interior Systems have demonstrated through the years their customer first approach. When we learned that CiF designed a new high value wood casework line that would allow us to meet our incredibly tight schedule, with a product that has the same premium characteristics that we’re accustomed to specifying, it made selecting the Educator Series for the Sharon City School District project a no brainer!”

The Challenge

Sharon City School District decided it was time to renovate its middle and high schools to accommodate their evolving STEM/STEAM curriculum.  The district wanted to provide its students with a collaborative environment that fosters critical thinking and hands-on problem solving. Restructuring their science curriculum to accommodate STEM/STEAM learning also required improvements to their classroom spaces. CiF was challenged with providing a robust, durable and highly functional casework solution that will meet their current and future instructional needs.  All this while providing a superior aesthetic equal to that typical of higher education facilities. In addition, the NEIS/CiF project delivery team faced an incredibly aggressive schedule.

Our Solution

CiF provided Sharon City School District with premium Educator Series full flush overlay wood casework.  The Educator Series is a strong and resilient casework line that is fabricated in accordance with SEFA-8W and AWI-QCP’s stringent construction and finishing standards; thereby meeting the District’s long-lasting performance requirements.  Vertical matched AA veneer fronts significantly reduce variation in grain and color, providing the customer with a naturally stunning aesthetic.  The Educator Series cabinet line was purposefully designed to flow efficiently through CiF’s factory, allowing the project team to meet this aggressive schedule by consistently providing on-time, complete and accurate deliveries.
