Perceptive Advisors LLC is known for its successful track record of investing in the life and sciences industries. Sixteen employees work at their office, which is located on the tenth floor at 51 Astor Place in New York City.
Perceptive Advisors had a tight move in deadline that needed to be met, as well as a budget that needed to be closely followed. Once the lease was finalized, The Atlantic Group guided the client through the process of furniture selection to fit their new environment and their goals.
“One of the ways we achieved this was by giving the client a lead-time outline. This showed them when orders needed to be placed and approvals received to meet their date,” said Atlantic Group’s Project Manager, Tomica Dietrich.
A number of items had a tight, 20-week lead-time, which meant that efficiently managing every step of the process was crucial. “To cut down on lead-time and streamline the process, we utilized Decca and other products where the fabrics were pre-approved, so testing and approval was not needed,” said Tomica.
Some employees had been experiencing back pain as a result of sitting. As a solution, The Atlantic Group recommended using height adjustable desks. Standing has allowed employees to relieve their back pain, and Perceptive Advisors have seen an increase in productivity a result of this solution.
