Altoon Partners, an international architecture
firm, recently moved
its Los Angeles
a historic building
built in 1929. The
new office design
called for worksta-tions with ample
areas for collaborative work and video conferencing. The firm chose a
freestanding desk system to create an open, flexible landscape. But a key
challenge was providing connectivity without using core drilling, raised
floors, or power poles.
Altoon Partners used Connectrac’s floor-mounted wireways to deliver
power, AV, and telecom cabling to all of its workstations and meeting areas.
Power infeed conduits run directly from the base of the furniture panels into
the Connectrac® cable pathway, effectively hiding the unsightly cords.

The Université de Saint-Boniface in Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada, has been systemically retrofitting its
classrooms to create a more active learning
environment. In IT classrooms, both the
instructor lectern and student desks require
LAN and power connectivity, USB outlets,
and wire management.
Looking for a clean solution, the facilities
team installed Connectrac In-Carpet
Wireways under the student tables and
teacher station. The greatest benefit of
using Connectrac wireways for the
university is their flexibility to be moved
or reconfigured—a major advantage in
today’s rapidly evolving classrooms.
LEFT “The ability to transform a classroom quickly
and efficiently is something we were really seeking,”
said Robert Simard, director of facilities and security.
“With Connectrac, we know we can make a different
configuration at any time.”
