Group of Shades



Our Design Development Department (DDD) kicks off the beginning of the collaborative process by creating extensive visualizations of the project. They deliver a holistic view of the design to ensure it aligns with the client’s vision and meets their requirements.

The DDD passes detailed information on to the Estimating Department where accurate estimates are developed to outline the expected price for the formal proposal.

The Project Design and Engineering Department creates a comprehensive 3D model, design drawings, and engineering calculations. After the client approves these submissions, our team patterns the fabric shape. In this phase, a 2D representation of the design is created by combining a series of templates into a fabric assembly.

The Project Management Department oversees all steps throughout the project. They use custom software to develop an efficient and cost-effective organizational plan, managing schedules, approvals, logistics, and much more to guide the project smoothly to completion.
