Designers and architects:
Avoid the mistakes and inaccurate assumptions that are common in initial concept scenarios by getting expert advice at the outset. Having workable and accurate plans before the job is put out for bid means fewer assumptions on the part of bidding participants. Competing bidders will be pricing the same project, making it simpler to evaluate their proposals.
I can also work with you and your team throughout the process to ensure that your schedules are better developed and more focused earlier along in the job. This will help everyone understand your design vision for the project as well as reduce the great number of clarifications that can arise and will require your attention and time.
Homeowners and Business Owners:
I can help you monitor and control your project, giving you real-time and unbiased updates on progress of contractors and mill-work subcontractors. I can review on-site as well as off-site progress on a regular basis, extending your understanding of the job, an essential part of building or renovating your home or office.
The cost of mill-work and cabinets varies depending on their location, quality, and experience. Finding the right balance between cost and quality is an art. Acting as a liaison between you and your outside suppliers, I can not only monitor their work but can provide up-to-date site measurements and supervise the installation phase, often an issue when using distant and less-expensive fabricators.
Cabinet and Mill-work Fabricators:
Dealing with on-site work can distract you from your primary job—managing your shop and crew. I can help you to interface with architects, designers, clients, contractors, and the physical site, freeing you to focus on your operation. I have years of experience dealing with the issues inherent with site management and the team that contributes to the project. Site visits for minor but necessary tasks can eat up your valuable time. I speak your language, the language of technical cabinetmaking, and can communicate quickly by phone, text and email, allowing you to be literally in two places at once.
