Don’t Count the Days, Make the Days Count

Author: Bill DiMasi, VP of Marketing at MetroWall

It’s hard to believe 2023 is winding down. We all hear the same phrase this time of year, “Where did the time go?” or “I can’t believe another year is almost in the books!”. Guilty as charged! I say that often as November turns to December. The busier we get with life, the faster time seems to pass. It’s probably why we all take a moment to reflect on the past and look ahead to what the coming year might bring. 

Throughout the year, but especially during the holiday season, we think about supporting others. Building and connecting with our community is a topic we often speak about at MetroWall. It’s in our company’s DNA to find ways to do more.  

This year, our “More is Possible” energy during the holiday season is focused on supporting two organizations that are giving back to our community in a big way – Food Bank of the Hudson Valley and Help USA. 

Statistics show that more than 44 million people in the US face hunger, including 1 in 5 children. With food scarcity a significant problem in our region, the MetroWall team conducted a food drive and donated non-perishable items to the Food Bank of the Hudson Valley before the Thanksgiving holiday. This organization is dedicated to alleviating hunger, while preventing the waste of wholesome food. 

Also, it’s reported that more than half a million individuals are experiencing homelessness in America, and that number is on the rise. In December, we partnered with Help USA who provides shelter and support to individuals and families in need. MetroWall team members are currently conducting a toy drive, in partnership with VVA Project & Cost Managers, to collect toys that will be distributed during Christmas. This donation will help raise the spirits of many children at a time when hope and joy are so desperately needed.  

We often count the days during the year and time passes all too quickly. We wanted to wish all our clients and partners a happy holiday season, and remind everyone to make every day count in 2024!

MetroWall Brings Functionality & Customization at Healthcare & Finance Tech Company

We recently worked with the team at Fusion Design Consultants on a dual-location project for a Healthcare & Finance Tech company. One project was located in Morristown, NJ and the other was based in Boston, MA. But while the spaces were for the same client, the goals for each space and, in turn, the design were very different. 

The Morristown space was a large-scale project that called for nearly 1,000 linear feet of glass. The client went with a butt-glazed VETRO Series with standard matte black frames for this space. The design not only met the current day-to-day operations but was also created to meet the company’s future needs as it grows.

On the other hand, the tenant’s Boston office design called for several custom elements. The LP Series provided a minimal look throughout the office space and the EXTEND Series in the executive office gave the tenant the ability to quickly and easily open up the space and maximize the footprint. One of the most noticeable custom elements throughout the space is the shadow gold frame finishes.  

Hear more about the project experience from Fusion Design Consultants’ principal Jennifer Peters and MetroWall’s project consultant Peter Coulter.
