Not Making AV An After Thought
Project Spotlight: Ginger
officemorph recently completed a build-out and move for Ginger, a company providing mobile access to high-quality coaches, clinicians and counseling content. They couple data science and virtual care to reinvent how the world gets mental health support, helping others receive the support they need without stigma. The 14,338 space required demo and repairs as well as a complete power, data and security rebuild within a four week duration. officemorph worked with a team of over ten vendors to get the Ginger team moved in the knick of time. Thank you to all who helped make this expedited project a success!
Spotlight: Audio Visual Contractor
Recently we had the opportunity to interview Christie White over at AVI-SPL, a company that provides audio-visual services to create meaningful experiences and brand value in the workplace.
Q. What are the key challenges that you face?
Sometimes a client waits until the last minute to bring us on and that causes problems as the infrastructure we need may not be set up. Also, if a client is relocating after many years, their existing tech may be outdated and we run into major compatibility issues.
Q. What is your favorite part about this business?
I enjoy being involved throughout the collaborative process and being part of a team. We really work with our clients to make sure that their needs are met and that the space is easy to use and functions just the way they want.
"It is ideal that we are brought in early on in the project cycle so we can provide input for the infrastructure"

Reflecting on Women in Real Estate During International Women’s Day
With International Women's day this month, and since officemorph proudly has predominantly women PMs in a male dominated field, we thought we would highlight this article from IREM online about women in real estate:
International Women’s Day was celebrated this month on March 8. It is a global day for recognizing the social, economic, cultural and political achievements of women and marks a call to action for accelerating gender parity.
While the commercial real estate industry has historically been predominantly male, more and more women are entering this workspace. As noted in an article in the March 3 New York Times, “It is no longer groundbreaking for women to work on construction sites, to develop or design retail and commercial spaces, or to fill those spaces with tenants.”
This is especially true in the property and asset management sectors. According to 2018 data reported by the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, 49.7 percent of those employed as property, real estate and community association managers were women. Within IREM, the percentage of women is even higher: In 2016, according to the most recent CPM Profile and Compensation Study, 53.5 percent of all CPM Members were female. Compare this to 1989, when women comprised only 26.4 percent of the CPM membership.
These numbers are noteworthy in conjunction with International Women’s Day, whose theme this year, “Balance for Better,” peaks to the view that a balanced world is a better world.
