Since Compass is modular, it is innately flexible and poised for change.  Herman Miller’s website says it best: “The components are easily assembled, removed, rearranged, and refreshed. Storage can be quickly relocated, headwall utilities can be easily accessed, added, or modified, and damaged product can be easily replaced without demolition. The result is unmatched flexibility.”

Demolition is especially difficult in Healthcare environments – not to mention it’s strain on the budget.  Utilizing a 3.5” chase quickly accommodates factory provided pre-plumbed and pre-wired utilities such medical gasses, nurse call code blue emergency power, normal power, voice and data, and more.  Keeping in mind that the Healthcare industry is always changing, Compass was designed with the future in mind.  Ease of tile removal allows for quick access for changes in utility and maintenance.  So, as the requirements change, you can increase or decrease the level of utilities.
