THINK SMART – THE LEARNING ENVIRONMENT SOLUTION BY GROUPE LACASSE
From the reception area to interactive learning stations and computer labs, Groupe Lacasse offers a complete range of products covering the full needs of teaching establishments. Groupe Lacasse’s furniture solutions are designed to meet all requirements in terms of ergonomics, flexibility and the integration of technologies.
Smart construction. From the time it was founded 64 years ago, Groupe Lacasse has earned an enviable reputation for creating smart furnishings. Its commitment is based on an ongoing quest for quality, attention to detail and innovation. These qualities have earned the company ISO 14001 and 9001 certifications. Setting the standard for durability and reliability, Groupe Lacasse casegoods and more specifically its Think Smart furniture collection combines thermofused laminate components with metal-to-metal hardware assembly designed to adapt to the realities of educational establishments. All products are highly resistant and carry a limited lifetime warranty. Groupe Lacasse products meet or exceed BIFMA standards. Better yet, their design is based on principles of modularity and interchangeability. As a result, components can easily be changed to update the look of a piece of furniture or to increase its service life.
Smartly designed for learning. Smart design involves the creation of product lines adapted to new teaching approaches. Furniture is designed for teamwork, communication and learning. What drives Groupe Lacasse? A desire to help turn teaching establishments into environments conducive to personal success and achievement.
Smart fit. Products evolve with people and needs. Think Smart furniture consists of an extensive range of modular components that fit seamlessly with each other. Better yet, they also fit beautifully with other Lacasse freestanding casegoods, steel storage products and panel-based systems. Add in United Chair seating and Arold modular soft seating to fit the bill. Think Smart products are distinguished by fluid profiles, attractive angles and straight lines as well as a host of practical features. Shapes, dimensions, colors: all the products can be customized to specific criteria. Groupe Lacasse’s leadership in the areas of design and innovation has been recognized by many awards including several “Best of Neocon” prizes.
Think Smart. Think environment. Groupe Lacasse is committed to preserving natural resources and minimizing its environmental footprint. Casegoods are manufactured primarily from particleboard produced from 100% post-industrial waste. The company also applies many other recovery measures.
Groupe Lacasse is understandably proud of its products’ GREENGUARD® certifications, which not only confirm that their products will not adversely affect the air quality of work environments, but it allows architects, designers and specifiers using Groupe Lacasse products to earn points towards LEED® certifications. Now more than ever, the furniture industry aligns with sustainability. Most Groupe Lacasse products are LEVEL® 1 or 2 certified; BIFMA’s sustainability certification program for furniture.
Groupe Lacasse can meet an academic establishment’s full range of administrative needs, from management to consulting, and provides all-in-one solutions for the reception area to the private office. Groupe Lacasse solutions offer a modular approach along with a wide selection of styles and options. Custom-made… almost! This perception is further enhanced by the fact that finishes, from laminates to metal paint and accent colors, are compatible across all product lines.
A happy student is a more successful student: students concentrate better in an environment adapted to their needs. Studies have shown that the quality of facilities, particularly as it relates to educational furniture, is reflected in student success rates. »
