BE Furniture is Awarded New Office Design Project for Geraldine R. Dodge Foundation in Newark, New Jersey


Business Environments LLC, a leading MWBE firm located in Morris Plains, New Jersey specializing in commercial office interior services, announces that it has been contracted by Geraldine R. Dodge Foundation to design their new corporate offices in conjunction with the JLL Project Management Team. The Foundation’s new offices will be located in Newark, NJ. ENV and AKT architectural firms, along with E. L’Alease & Co. are designing out the new office spaces as BE supports them with product application. Similar to BE Furniture, AKT and E. L’Alease and Co. are also minority-owned and operated businesses both located in Englewood, NJ.

About Geraldine R. Dodge Foundation

Geraldine R. Dodge Foundation is a private foundation based in New Jersey, that supports, centers, and connects communities and changemakers who are addressing the root causes and repair of structural racism and inequity in New Jersey. And for their foundation, 2024 signifies more than just a new year, it means a new home. Geraldine R. Dodge Foundation has begun the process of moving its headquarters to Newark, New Jersey. For decades, Newark has been home to social and racial justice movements and immersing themselves in the area will strengthen their understanding of and engagement in this work. This is an exciting opportunity for the Foundation to further connect themselves with a more just and equitable New Jersey. Finding businesses to design their new home is not a project the Foundation has taken lightly. Above all else, the team at Geraldine R. Dodge Foundation wanted to entrust their new headquarters to a team whose beliefs aligned with their own. When they were introduced to the team at BE Furniture, both organizations were thrilled to discover their shared values of diversity, equity and inclusion.

Concept for the New Corporate Headquarters

ENV, AKT and E. L’Alease & Co. firms, with the support of BE will continue to work hand in hand to design the space in its entirety. BE is involved in every step from furniture procurement to installation and making sure the selected products coordinate with the finishing details selected by the Foundation and the design teams. Bryson Fonville, VP of Sales for BE Furniture, had this to say about the goal for their new office design: “We want to make sure their new office is inviting, comfortable and inclusive for everyone. From the materials and colors to furniture selection, we wanted this to come through in each room and common area. It’s important for us to do all we can to encourage diversity within their space. We believe offices are an extension of culture, so it is imperative that the Foundation’s new home aligns with their core mission.” Fonville also speaks on behalf of the whole BE team to convey their most heartfelt gratitude and pride in working with Geraldine R. Dodge Foundation. “It’s very exciting and refreshing to work with a non-profit who believes in the same principles as we do. Our shared belief to invest in under-resourced communities directly aligns with our business and cultural model. The project with Geraldine R. Dodge Foundation has been so fulfilling because it’s an opportunity (and responsibility) we have to help them reach a community they want to be close with and serve. We love and take pride in being able to help them, help people who truly need to be represented and heard.”

Training Company? Here’s How to Design Your Space

Training and upskilling employees is a critical part of being a competitive and forward-thinking business. So, it’s no surprise that top training companies are thriving. Your training space not only says a lot about your business, but also has to be functional. This often means that designing it can be a challenge. Here are some insights from our contemporary office furniture team in NJ.

  • Calm and Neutral:

You’re going to have people from all industries, walks of life and all levels of the corporate world coming to you for training, so the space needs wide appeal. Calm, neutral, and warm colors make people feel welcome and focused, and reduces distractions, supporting the mindset they need to learn.

  • Mobile, Adaptable Furniture:





You’re going to be training groups of different sizes, and possibly even splitting them up to work on different skill sets. So, your furniture needs to be easily moved, split up, and re-grouped as you require. Lightweight chairs and tables, as well as modular units, are best.

  • Presentation Space:

You need a free wall or space where presentation boards, whiteboards or digital presentations can take place for the group – keeping in mind that some training specialists make use of multiple types of media when they’re teaching.

  • Good Lighting:

Training often means intensive learning and long hours, so your lighting has to be perfect if you want people to be able to concentrate and focus during their session. A combination of natural and artificial light (preferably LED lights as they are gentler on the eyes and don’t flicker) is best.

  • Stay Refreshed:

The last thing your space will need is an easily accessible refreshment station. This is a great addition for training rooms as it means participants won’t have to leave the room or miss out on anything if they need a juice, soda, water or snack

Designing an Office Cafeteria? Here’s What to Do!

Office cafeterias are a hub for your workplace – a space to unwind, reenergize, talk to colleagues, and even hold informal meetings. Although it’s an often-overlooked space, according to research by Steelcase, 91% of employees feel that they need a space to recharge at work. Gone are the days of plastic trays shuttling along a silver rail while workers shovel scoops of reinvented mash potatoes onto your plate. In the modern office, eating at the company cafeteria is an experience no different than going to a fun, modern restaurant. Bringing modern office design ideas into your cafeteria space is a perfect marriage of form, fun, and functionality.

  • Welcoming Decor:

Everyone should feel welcome and at home as soon as they walk into your cafeteria, helping them relax and unwind. Use natural lighting, art, and color to create a vibrant yet relaxing ambiance. Opening it up to the outdoors adds that much-needed dose of vitamin D as well as a cafè vibe.

  • Create Gathering Spaces:

Eating at a long bare lunch table is also yesterday’s news. Modern cafeteria’s create grouped spaces that make it both easy to eat but also easy to interact in a cozy informal way. Depending on the size of the cafeteria, designs will balance the need for simultaneous seating with area’s that can double as gathering or meeting area’s for small groups. Introduce a “cool” factor to these areas through design and seating options. You can enhance your productivity, as well as feeding your teams.

  • Access to Tech:

If your business encourages employees to work flexible hours and pick their own surroundings, then your cafeteria can support this. Pop-up power allows employees to charge devices and run laptops from this space, and Wi-Fi keeps everyone in touch. This means you can hold meetings here in casual, coffee shop-type surroundings – everyone’s favorite kind of mobile working hotspot.

  • Don’t Forget about the Food:

The current generation of workers are more health conscious than any generation before. Any worthwhile cafeteria has to have a wide variety of fresh fruits, healthy snacks, salads and sandwiches as well as coffee, tea, and juices to help your employees keep their blood sugar levels stable and encourage wellness in the workplace. Don’t forget about gluten free options as well as more and more americans choose this lifestyle. Don’t underestimate how gourmet level food options and an inviting space conspire to make your company the place to be for your teams.

  • Comfortable but Hygienic:

Cafeteria furniture should be comfortable, but easy to clean and maintain. BE furniture represents many manufactures that achieve this perfect balance between high traffic modern furniture that is durable, beautiful, and easy to maintain. Because this is a food space, it’s important that it’s kept very clean, that food is prepared according to strict health standards, and that tables and chairs are cleaned regularly.

What is an essay?

An essay is a small prose work that is written in a literary genre on any topic. Students perform this work in a free style, where they express their own thoughts, feelings, and ideas.

However, despite the freedom of creativity, the essay is not as easy to write as it seems at first glance. After all, you need to find an original idea and present it beautifully. And not everyone can do that.

The essay is that you need to use non-standard statements:

allegorical images;
unexpected turn;
interesting clutches.

To successfully write an essay, the author must clearly express their position. Create unexpected twists and unpredictable conclusions in the essay.

Requirements for writing an essay
To get a high score on an essay, literacy alone is not enough. You should also keep in mind the structure that includes:

Main part.

It depends on the introduction whether the reader wants to finish reading your essay. Therefore, you need to start with interest. Formulate a problem, add an interesting quote, and describe the essence. In other words, you need to create an emotional mood.

The main part fully reveals the essence of the problem. Here you can already write theses, arguments, your own judgments, examples, and more.

The last part is the conclusion, which describes the conclusions of the entire essay, adds integrity and pushes the reader to their thoughts.

Why does help with essays in the service cost less?
Writing an essay is not an easy job. First, it is necessary to pick up interesting metaphors, allegories, aphorisms. The essay should have its own original style of writing to catch and interest the reader. Collecting information takes a lot of time and effort. As a result, quite often the essay is not what you would like.

If a student is not good at processing information, he will not be able to take into account all the nuances from the first time, and most likely, the teacher will give the essay to finalize, which takes a lot of time.

Very often, teachers require high uniqueness in the essay. So you can’t just take information from the Internet. You still need to rewrite everything in your own words so that it is not only original, but also high-quality. writing service employs professionals who will write the work in a short time, efficiently, uniquely and, most importantly, without modifications. You will not have to blush in front of the teacher, as your work will be appreciated.

You can determine the cost of writing an essay only after getting acquainted with the nature of the complexity of the execution, how many characters, the desired level of uniqueness, deadlines, and other requirements.
As a rule, work is difficult when you need to search for information. If there are few sources, it will be cheaper, and Vice versa.
In addition, the cost of the order varies with the delivery period. If there is a great urgency, the cost will naturally be automatically increased.

According to statistics, the cost of assistance in writing an essay is an inexpensive job among all types of written works of students and schoolchildren. This is possible thanks to an online system based on the exchange principle, where the authors fight for your order and call the lowest possible prices.

Essential Ergonomic Wellness Tips That Any Office Can Implement

Remember when you were younger and your parents or teachers would reprimand you for slouching? While many of us would want great posture, we are a nation of slouchers. Slouching isn’t just an aesthetic problem it can also lead to back problems – something that costs American companies over $100 billion each year.

It may seem like slouching isn’t something that can be fixed, with most office workers spending an average of 38 minutes out of every hour in bad posture. There are, however, a few essential ergonomic wellness tips that every office should implement to combat bad posture. Below we mention a few:

Be Comfortable

If you are sitting at your desk in front of your computer and something feels off, it’s time to move. Re-adjust yourself so that you are always working in a comfortable position.

Sit Properly in Your Office Chair

The right position is to ‘sit on your butt bones’. Move your bottom to the back of your office chair so that your pelvis faces your desk. This way, your body won’t have to expend a lot of energy for you to sit up straight.

Put Your Keyboard in the Right Place

You will never be in a comfortable sitting position if your keyboard isn’t positioned correctly. Sit in front of your desk and drop your arms so that they hang by your sides. Relax your shoulders and bend your elbows. The place where your fingertips are is where you should put your keyboard.

Move Around the Office

Spend at least between 5 and 10 minutes of every hour on your feet or moving around.

Set Reminders

Set a reminder on your computer to remind you to focus on your posture each day. Simply thinking about the way you sit and how you can reposition yourself will keep your posture front and center.

Get a Better Desk from BE Furniture

Sit stand desks, adjustable height desks, and flexible office desks from BE Furniture are designed for better ergonomics. Whether you need a desk where you can choose to sit or stand, or simply need a bit of extra height to your table, we have got the perfect solution for you.

Designing An Effective Co-Working Space

Co-working spaces are big business all over the USA and the world, with dedicated co-working spaced growing from zero to 11,000 in just ten years – and set to increase by another 15,000 by 2020. With the industry picking up speed, it’s vital for designers to create the most effective spaces out there in order to maintain that competitive edge. Here are some great tips on designing the best co-working spaces, from our contemporary office furniture specialists.

  • Reflect how the workplace is changing: Co-working spaces started as cheap alternatives to traditional offices during the economic crunch – a space where freelancers and independent contractors could meet and work without breaking the bank. Now, these spaces are growing in popularity with salaried employees for businesses seeking an affordable solution to workplace space shortages. Keeping this in mind can help you design for – and help you attract – big business clients like KPMG and GE who favor this option.
  • Focus on what people enjoy about co-working: Why do people like co-working spaces? They are inexpensive, flexible, centrally located, offer networking opportunities, and promote a work-life balance. These should then be the focus of your design – allowing clients to hold meetings in larger rooms as well as use busy hot desks and quiet spaces, keeping costs down but functional quality high, and creating a space that is inspiring and enjoyable as well as practical.
  • Utilities first, interior design later: While the ambience of a space is an essential part of successful co-working spaces, your first investment should be in function – high-speed Internet is a must-have, along with durable office furniture like sit-stand desks, and ergonomic office chairs. Good lighting, preferably balanced with good natural lighting, is another essential that will draw people to your space.
  • The work-life balance: Co-working spaces that thrive usually embody a philosophy of work-life balance and casual networking. They often feel more like a coffee shop or an informal gathering of likeminded people than a traditional workplace. Ensuring that your space combines wellness with work, creativity with competition is key to achieving this balance, and the use of art, nature and comfort-driven features are some of the ways this can be achieved.
