Furniture Specification & Interior Design Project Manager

 

It's not easy to design and build great spaces for people to work in. Time, money, value and employee satisfaction are key to the success of each project we undertake at Facility Planners. It’s a balancing act to deliver a completely custom solution for each client on time, within budget and all the while providing exceptional service. But that is what we do every day for each of our clients. We do this because we care. We care that it’s right. We care that it’s on time. We care that it’s what the client envisioned.
