Southeastern Retina Cubicles & Relocation

open plan cubicle workstations

Southeastern Retina specializes in treatment and surgery for diseases of the retina and vitreous, exploring the cutting edge of clinical research and providing service that has positioned their nationally recognized, board-certified ophthalmologists as the region’s leading experts for comprehensive retina care. The Office Furniture Warehouse team recently had the opportunity to work with Southeastern Retina, installing a system of cubicle workstations, individual workstations and providing relocation services to their new office space in Hixson, TN.


Central Open Space (Before: from entrance) – this image is almost in line with where a wall once stood, dividing the two spaces that were combined to create the open plan layout.

 The Space

 The newly acquired space encompasses what were originally two separate suites in a small business complex. A dividing wall was removed, and new drywall was erected to create private office spaces, storage and break rooms surrounding a large open space. From the previous location, existing furniture and employees’ materials had to be relocated.

The People

Home to Southeastern Retina’s medical billing department, the workspaces would necessarily prioritize focus – meticulous, detail-oriented work that lends itself to a significant amount of time spent at individual workstations. While the new space would be office usage only, keeping the option for expansion open in the future was also a consideration to be made.

Our goal was to create a flexible work environment, making effective use of square footage in the new location while coordinating with staff & contractor schedules to facilitate a smooth relocation.

Office Relocation

Change is hard. Office Furniture Warehouse knows. That’s why we provide commercial relocation services – to make moving easy. The new office space required a move of some existing furniture and employee materials, so the Southeastern Retina team rented about four dozen of our mobile, reusable moving crates to make quick work of their relocation.

Private Office Workstations

The two private offices, partitioned from the open plan layout of the cubicles, each have a u-group workstation with overhead storage and a round conference table setup for entertaining guests or hosting small meetings. Bow-front desk and overhead hutch doors with chrome frame and frosted glass window add a refined element to a tried-and-true favorite.

Open-Plan Cubicle Workstations

The open space would be home to a system of cubicles arranged in 3-, 4- and 6-person workstation groups. The cubicle workstations feature framed glass panels, work surfaces with woodgrain finish to provide a nice contrasting effect, and “toolbar” panel tiles in each workstation. These mounted tracks allow individuals to arrange a custom hanging storage setup that is easily reconfigured or removed.

“Southeastern Retina has worked on two major projects with OFW.  I could not be more pleased with the outcome of these projects, most recent being our brand new billing office in Hixson. I recommend Jason and his staff at OFW for any project you may have. I appreciate Jason and his team’s professionalism. Dedication such as this is hard to find. I will most definitely use OFW for any project that may arise in the future. Thanks Jason and your whole team for the expert work you provided.” – Paula Hibbs, SE Retina
