A Bit About Our History

In 1993 iSpace began with a similar mission using modern workspace furniture that would support the progressive nature of the office. Owner of both companies, Joel Peterson merged the companies in 2017 to align efforts. In 2018, iSpace Environments enhanced the Technology division by offering services that extend into complete office integration like phone, WiFi, Structured Cable and Security. Our organization is one company–enabled to offer a streamlined approach for partners, employees and clients.
