Creative sourcing & Procurement

What we do

Procurement with creativity, diligence and precision. We are procurement specialists that achieve harmony between a project’s unique aesthetic, fiduciary, and strategic parameters. Our process focuses on the value achieved through transparency and collaboration with the full project team

 

1. We are ambassadors of the designer’s intent (Creativity)
Our team is involved early and often to help protect the designer’s intent. We leverage our experience in custom fabrication and depth of vendor relationships to achieve the project goals.

2. We are stewards of the client’s investment (Diligence)
Our responsibility is the diligent stewardship of the client’s investment. As a fiduciary, we take professional responsibility for managing the FFE, art, and custom fabrication budgets.

3. We are doers facilitating creative solutions (Precision)
Our three-phase procurement approach begins in Schematic Design and finishes after the final punch walk. We apply our experience to anticipate challenges and ensure success.

How we fit in

From collaboration to integration. Our process is an evolution from the sequential consultant structure to an integrated specialty service that applies the expertise of each trade throughout the entire effort.

We start early, communicate constantly, and never forget budget realities.
