Situation > As part of its broad expansion phase, Roberto Cavalli USA and Art Fashion Corporation
was seeking construction services for this tenant build-out project encompassing 2,400 square feet of retail space and 800 square feet of storage and office area. T&G was chosen for this project based on our extensive experience in the retail construction sector as well as our advisory consultations with the client during the pre-construction phases that included cost effective solutions for long lead times.
Action >This and MDC Architects coordinated closely to meet corporate brand standards and ensure quality within the schedule allotted. T&G worked diligently to navigate such parameters as the specified materials, high-end light fixtures and custom-made furnishings and millwork assigned to this project. Field engineering was also a critical function of the overall success of the project. Full-time, on-site supervision was provided to ensure successful material procurement delivery and installation. Throughout the project, materials were often installed out of sequence to meet our scheduling goals.
Results > Out of the three Roberto Cavalli retail construction projects under construction, the T&G awarded, Orlando-based job was the only one to open on time. Careful planning meant T&G not only completed the work without incidents, but also impressed the client and laid the groundwork for establishing a long-term partnership. “I want to personally thank all of you for the incredible job. Cavalli’s CEO in the U.S. loved it. He was thrilled and very impressed not only for the short timing and perfect opening, but also for the quality of the work. I have to be honest with you; you are the first U.S. team that really looked into details.” Marco Gherardi, Operations Manager, USA.
