SELF-PERFORMANCE

The core of our business, our understanding of the intricacies of construction, our ability to control the details and schedule is our capabilities to perform work ourselves. To staff and execute the unskilled through the skilled trades and to the fine finish trades. We self-perform all of the typical non-MEP activities required during an interior fit-out including Structural Framing, Inte­rior Glazed Partition Systems, Millwork, Finish Carpentry, GWB and ACT Systems, Painting and Flooring.

We can also provide full moving and FF&E procurement and support.

By understanding the highest levels of quality we are equipped to demand that same level of quality from the artisans and crafts­men we retain. Those tradesmen are only as good as the management and supervisory staff who are the guarantors of quality and schedule. This is particularly important as the IMF requires immediate and flawless execution. Our staff understands the importance of proper planning and flawless execution.

We are a District of Columbia Certified Business Enterprise, with offices in Ward 8 and a dedication and record of over compliance with the District of Columbia’s own requirements for CBE participation and resident hiring on both publicly and privately funded projects. Our Apprenticeship Programs help develop our unskilled labor into tradespeople capable at the highest levels of work.

We are a construction company first and foremost but also a company intent on providing long-term opportunities for our employees. We actively seek out people who have unlimited potential but have not been allowed an environment in which to thrive. We have built a family and provided an environment of shared responsibility and ownership over our work and have many success stories and a formidable team of dedicated employees.
