I’ve worked with Joyce Contracting for several years now and they are one of my favorite vendors. We just finished an 108,000 square foot build-out within an aggressive four month window and we were able to move in on time largely due to the creative and dedicated team at Joyce Contract Interiors. Their approachable and highly knowledgeable staff is always ready to assist with any project no matter the size or challenge. Happy 25th Anniversary and many more!

Home to Brandeis University and Bentley University, the city is now a center for higher education and hosts service and manufacturing powerhouse Raytheon Technologies. Waltham has been called “watch city,” as the Waltham Watch Company, the first company to make watches using an assembly line, opened its factory in the city in 1854.

Frequently Asked Questions

Do you offer new and used office furniture?

Yes, we carry over 150 lines of new furniture, while used furniture is purchased on a case by case basis. 

What is the cost to get my product delivered?

Delivery costs are calculated by our installers based on many factors: the amount of product being ordered, the location to which it is being delivered, whether or not the building has a loading dock or an elevator, whether the building is union or non-union, and if the delivery can be done during regular business hours or if it needs to be done on overtime.

Because each job is different, it is best to call and get a quote from one of our knowledgeable salespeople. (Note that because of the complexities involved, getting a quote may take a few days.)

What is the difference between Benching and Cubicles?

As a general overview, cubicles are panel-based workstations that provide the most privacy from other employees; benching has either no or minimal panels and provides an open-style row of desks meant to encourage collaboration.

Cubicles can come in many sizes and configurations depending on the client’s needs. Panels come in 39″, 47″, 53″, 67″, and 85″ heights, comprised of fabric, glass, and whiteboard finishes.

Benching or desking is typically used in smaller workspace configurations and can measure anywhere from 3′ to 7′. If privacy is needed, privacy screens with heights of 8″ to 24″ can be added.

What is the process for ordering office furniture?

We often get questions about the process of selecting and ordering new workstations or other significant office purchases. To help envision the process, we’ve outlined our basic steps:

  1. We first suggest that our clients take a look at the examples on our website to help them get an idea of the systems they would like to see in their space, offering to answer any questions or make suggestions.
  2. We then communicate with our clients to get a full list of their furniture and accessory needs based on the types of work that is being done in each area. After this discussion, we request a scaled CAD plan of the space in order to test fit and lay out the discussed furnishings. This process allows us to make sure the furniture will fit before it is purchased. Often during this process we will go to the site and perform field measurements to confirm the client’s floor plan.
  3. Once the layout is complete and has been approved by our client, we will create a 3-D visual to help visualize the furnishings within the space. Clients next select their choices of fabric, paint, and laminate colors.
  4. After all of the details have been ironed out, we send an official detailed quote to the client, which needs to be signed and returned before the order can be placed with our manufacturers. We require a 50% deposit on all orders.
  5. After the furniture is ordered, it typically takes about 3-4 weeks, depending on what was ordered, to reach our installer’s warehouse. We will then call and schedule an install date for that week. Upon completion of successful installation, the client will be invoiced the remaining balance.

What is a Privacy Screen?

Privacy screens (also known as privacy panels) are used as dividers between workstations to define boundaries and give employees both privacy and improved acoustics. They can come in fabric, lexan glass, laminate, and whiteboard finishes, and are available in many sizes to fit almost any workstation.

Depending on the client’s needs these screens can be placed on top of or in between work surfaces, and even on top of cubicle panels. See examples of each on our benching page.

What is Sound Masking, and how can it help my office?

Sound masking is the introduction of an unobtrusive background sound similar to airflow that reduces distractions by making human speech unintelligible. (This does not mean that you cannot hear the person talking.)

A typical installation involves using 3″ speakers in the ceiling and a small 7″ x 5″ control box in the area where you want more acoustic privacy. For more information, take a look at our sound masking page.

What is Seated Privacy?
  • Often in a benching-style office there is a need for some privacy between workers. Seated Privacy uses 12″ to 16″ upmount screens to separate workers and provide a sense of privacy while employees can still see those around them.
Does office furniture and design affect productivity?

Yes, there are many studies on how a properly designed and outfitted office can enhance productivity.

How many chairs can you fit around a Conference Room Table?

A typical conference room chair is about 22″, and as a rule you should leave 4″ on either side of the chair. So, expect to leave 30″ for each chair. A general rule is:

Number of chairs = table size or circumference / (width of chair + 8″)

For example, if you have a 60″x 36″ table and divide each side by 30″, the 60″ side would allow 1-2 chairs and the 36″ side would allow only 1 chair, giving a total of 4-6 chairs at that table. Note: with round or oval tables you.
