By selecting, sourcing and managing FF&E acquisition, ColumbiaWorks provides our clients with a comprehensive range of services. ColumbiaWorks meets each client's unique requirements, while satisfying aesthetic and functional goals; from concept to completion.
Years of experience in interior design and detailed furniture specification have allowed us to build relationships with manufacturers on a broad volume basis. This advantage transfers to direct advocacy for our clients and allows us to represent their best interests, promising well thought out and innovative solutions while ensuring optimal functionality and cost containment.
Whether providing new direction with change management, detailed planning, branding, preparing budgets, or handling delivery and post occupancy services, the ColumbiaWorks team implements these services and brings projects to life. We ensure all codes are met as we guide our clients through documentation, shop drawings, field verification and coordination with consultants (furniture, audio visual, IT, move management). Experienced ColumbiaWorks staff will meet or exceed expectations so clients can focus on the business at hand and avoid costly mistakes or delays.
Code Consulting and Regulatory Approvals
ColumbiaWorks expedites approvals from municipal, state and federal agencies covering new and renovated healthcare, commercial, and historic/landmark projects. Our 25 years of project experience and a strong working knowledge of building codes - their origin and intent - is the basis for our confident interpretation and application of these requirements. As a client advocate, ColumbiaWorks provides the comprehensive knowledge of zoning, building codes, permit expediting and obtaining plan approvals essential for timely project completion.
ColumbiaWorks' integrated approach not only meets all code requirements, it also maintains the functional and aesthetic integrity of the project. Our reputation is such that we are often called upon for peer review of other firms as well as assistance with resolving deficiencies so a project can move forward. While we can become instrumental to a project at any stage, involving the ColumbiaWorks code consulting team early in the project often saves a significant amount of time and dollars, minimizing or eliminating an often costly re-submittal process.
