using the office
WHAT FURNITURE CAN I GET IN MY OFFICE?
Teknion desks (2’x4’ or 2.5’x5’), Aeron chairs, and small file pedestals come standard for every on-site employee you have. We can also supply you with surge protectors, Ethernet cables, shelves, whiteboards, coat hooks, a live plant, and soft seating. Just tell us what you need.
HOW DO I SET MY DOOR TO UNLOCKED MODE?
To lock/unlock your door, just hold down the lever handle on the inside and scan your key. You should hear a series of beeps. Now your door is set to the unlock mode and will stay that way until you repeat the process to lock it, or until 6:00 PM rolls around, whichever happens first. At that time, your door will lock again.
how can i obtain office supplies?
CIC does not provide office supplies as a normal part of our service, but if you find yourself in need at the last minute, don't hesitate to ask if we have it. We oftentimes have spare cables/adapters/etc. if you’d like to borrow them for the day.
For non-urgent needs, Amazon, Shoplet, Staples, Office Depot, and similar providers do an excellent job with their web-based ordering and delivery. You can also visit the MIT Coop down the street.
DOES CIC PROVIDE DECORATIONS?
Unfortunately, we don’t provide decorations, but you are more than welcome to bring in your own! We have plenty of tools and products to help mount them on the walls (3M Command strips, drywall anchors, screws, ...etc). Just shoot us an email and we’ll stop by to help with whatever kind of wall installation you need.
Our only request is to not use any tape that would leave a residue (duct tape is a big offender). It makes it really hard to prep the office for the next person. If you have doubts or questions about the best way to mount something, just come talk to us. We can likely mount it for you.
