Furniture Fixture & Equipment Outfitting Management
Furniture, fixtures and equipment are a vital part of most businesses. Our Logistic Project Managers are very effective in strategically planning and coordinating with multiple vendors on the timely delivery, installation and placement of products within your facility. We provide hands on management from beginning to the end on each phase of the delivery and installation, including an inventory of all items received to ensure that the specification of the owner is met. We also offer post-project support for warranties and replacements through our vendors.
Our experience has allowed us to successfully coordinate the delivery and installation of all furniture, fixtures and equipment for many newly constructed schools within Charleston County, South Carolina.

What is Project Management?
More specifically, what is a project? It’s a temporary group activity designed to produce a unique product, service or result.
A project is temporary in that it has a defined beginning and end in time, and therefore defined scope and resources.
And a project is unique in that it is not a routine operation, but a specific set of operations designed to accomplish a singular goal. So a project team often includes people who don’t usually work together – sometimes from different organizations and across multiple geographies.
The development of software for an improved business process, the construction of a building or bridge, the relief effort after a natural disaster, the expansion of sales into a new geographic market — all are projects.
And all must be expertly managed to deliver the on-time, on-budget results, learning and integration that organizations need.
Project management, then, is the application of knowledge, skills and techniques to execute projects effectively and efficiently. It’s a strategic competency for organizations, enabling them to tie project results to business goals — and thus, better compete in their markets.
