A system which manages the wiring and cabling needed by individual workstations (12) within an environment (10) having numerous workstations (12) is disclosed. Collective connectivity is utilized to couple a multi-commodity expansion cabinet, MCEC, (14) to building services (26, 28). The MCEC (14) transforms the collective connectivity into individual connectivity. Workstations (12) are grouped together into workstation clusters (30). A single MCEC (14) is assigned to each cluster (30). Individual connectivity is utilized to couple the MCEC (14) to the workstations (12) in the MCECs (14) cluster (30). The MCEC (14) is configured for use in and around high traffic areas in a building. The MCEC (14) is dimensioned for minimal size and compatibility with modern building practices. Individual raceways (68, 70) are provided for routing communication and power wiring. Various equipment bays (88, 94) are provided between the raceways (68, 70). The equipment bays are configured so that running room for cables (122, 130, 132) and power whips (32) exists within the interior of the MCEC (14).
