BCI Makes It Easy: Save Money and Time by Purchasing Library Furniture on Contract!

Posted by Colleen Egan in News

Saving is simple with us! Enjoy all the purchasing benefits of buying on contract with BCI.

Today, purchasing is an essential activity for nearly every institution. When purchasing, most organizations and institutions are bound by a budget that can be difficult to stick to. This can cause renovations and new construction projects to be held up, which ultimately results in overspending.

Purchasing contracts are set up with the capability of saving time and money. The contracts have been established with qualified vendors at competitive prices. Smaller entities have just as much purchasing power as larger ones. Both the vendor and the buyer benefit from these contracts, as the delivery of goods and services is quick and efficient.

When you purchase with BCI on contract, it’s one-stop-library-shopping! From preliminary design & revit files to on-time delivery and installation, we’ll handle it all.

All of the library furniture and at BCI, such as Shelving Systems, Tables and Chairs, Inform Countersand more can be acquired through purchasing contracts. We participate in the purchasing contracts listed below. Click on the icons to learn more about each purchasing contract!

Products We Love: Cocoon Lounge

Posted by Colleen Egan in News

All libraries are different. They vary in size, levels and layout. The functions of a library change over time and the existing building structure can be a limiting factor when wanting to make a change to the library space.

Creating zones within your library can be a challenge if you are unable to renovate. We have thought this through and come up with a perfect zoning solution that is easy to implement, and just as effective and impactful, without having to lay one brick!

Say hello to the Cocoon Lounge, the exciting addition to our Cocoon range of modular furniture. With one piece of furniture, you can now create a specialized zone within an open space. Whether a study zone for concentration or focus; or a gaming zone for play and fun, the innovative design of the Cocoon Lounge range allows you to reduce the scale of a large area and create a more intimate setting with its own unique purpose.

Key advantages of the Cocoon Lounge are:

-Get creative with lighting, graphics, screens, built-in furniture & functionalities to create unique & bespoke zoning solutions

-The acoustic properties ensure sound is contained within the Cocoon, preventing the disturbance of other library users

-Amplify the functionality and impact of the zone– use the exterior for storage and display of books, media and products relevant to the area.

Take a look at the various designs and be inspired. The possibilities are endless!
