The nature of work is constantly changing—a fact that organizations like yours deal with every day. External influences are at play around us, creating a domino effect that generates business challenges for you. Technology is progressing so fast it’s difficult to stay ahead. These advances, in turn, determine where and how people work, and influence your business drivers, organizational culture, and workplace design. As your needs change, your space should evolve as well. We can help you connect your workplace with your organizational objectives, and transform it into a responsive and adaptable environment. It all starts under your feet. Raised access floors provide the architectural bedrock for spaces that are flexible, responsive, cost-efficient, and beautiful.
Since 2003, we’ve been helping organizations distribute air, power, voice, and data within a variety of applications, including some of the largest and highest scoring LEED-certified buildings in the country. Today, our flooring products are the leading choice for architects and developers. Let us help you get back to business quickly and economically when you need to transform your space.
Haworth raised access flooring provides the flexibility you need to transform your space, minimize costs, and get back to business. And, it allows for more programmability. Access to air, power, voice, and data under the floor lets you reconfigure your layout with minimal downtime as your workspace needs change. With utilities under the floor, you can reduce electrical installation labor hours by 30-40%. The result is shorter construction schedules and reduced costs.

Raised access floors let you create an open space without the need for power poles. Changing the design of existing spaces is not limited by the location of power and data. Floor height can be varied to accommodate various finishes or functions within a space. We also offer a wide range of finish options and endless opportunities for customization through our TecCrete covered panels and bare panels.

Worker comfort is one of the top workplace issues challenging organizations. With raised access flooring, clean and newly conditioned air is introduced through the floor directly into the occupied zone. The air with the impurities naturally rises to be removed from the space. Air diffusers can be adjusted by occupants to give them greater temperature control, allowing them to focus on their work.
Raised access floors help you reduce energy costs by pushing air up from the floor rather than down from the ceiling. Fans use 10-20% less operational energy. Fan power requirements are reduced because less ductwork leads to lower static pressures. HVAC systems are more efficient because the air is targeted where needed—in the space people work. Installing modular flooring may also let you reap the tax benefits put into place by the Energy Policy Act of 2005, which allows tax deductions for commercial construction that meets energy efficient criteria.
With underfloor electrical access, you can shorten your construction schedule by allowing trade workers to work simultaneously. Power and data access under the floor makes a space flexible for the long term, so you can always reconfigure your layout with minimal downtime.
Underfloor air is one of the single most effective strategies, reaping savings in initial building costs and continuing operational costs, and for gaining LEED points. Our floors have been installed in some of the largest and highest scoring LEED-certified buildings in the country.
Our flooring is ideal for challenging renovation projects because it’s easy to level uneven floors and create a truly flexible workplace. Moves, adds, and changes are simple, allowing customization and speed toward occupancy, which are especially important for leased buildings with new tenants.
