Industry Day Minutes:

Furniture Industry Day was held on January 21, 2021, from 8:30 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. CST. Key attendees included PMO representatives, program office members, union representatives, and a list of virtual and in-person contractors.

The purpose of the Industry Day was to address questions related to construction schedules, cost-effective furniture options (re-upholstering vs. buying new), permits required for dumpster use, and physical security requirements for the workforce. Discussions highlighted the need for security compliance, background checks, and adherence to Real ID Act standards.

During the Q&A session, various topics were covered including reconfigurations of existing furniture, considerations for reupholstering components like benches and executive desks, logistics of moving electronic equipment during furniture relocation, and details on labor requirements (union vs. non-union).

Specific action items were assigned to USDA-PMO regarding dock specifications, floor plans distribution, AV disassembly responsibilities, and confirmation on raised flooring at the new location. The meeting concluded with a statement emphasizing the absence of raised flooring on the 12th floor and the need for further clarification on certain aspects related to installation logistics at One Metro Center.
