Each project begins with an idea and comes to life through the talent and creativity of an architect or an interior designer. The ideas are depicted in the form of design drawings which are sent out to bid, often through a general contractor. Exclusive Woodworking’s estimator reviews the design drawings and specifications provided and generates a detailed proposal to bid the job. When the contract is awarded, the planning process gets underway.
Planning begins with the assignment of a project manager who is the point of communication for the project. This experienced individual works closely with the design team, general contractor and home owner as well as all facets of the Exclusive Woodworking production team. A construction schedule is integral to the planning process and is provided by the general contractor. This schedule is overlaid with Exclusive Woodworking’s production schedule to block out time for the fabrication, assembly and finishing of each element of the project.
The highest quality materials are obtained and project specific finish samples are created and provided to the design team. Upon approval, materials are ordered and specialty items are requisitioned.
A site visit is scheduled and an initial field measure is performed to identify any issues or unique site conditions that may exist. From this information, Exclusive Woodworking’s engineering department creates detailed shop drawings which are sent out to the design team for review and approval.
The project progresses and typically after drywall, a final field measure is performed. Drawings are revised to accommodate site conditions or any changes that have occurred in the project and are then resubmitted for approval. Upon approval, production begins.
Teams of experienced craftsmen performing layout, cutout, assembly, finishing and final assembly work together to create the parts and pieces that will eventually be assembled into the final product.
A dedicated Logistics department ensures that the product is wrapped, packed, delivered and unloaded at the jobsite, on time and in impeccable condition.
Exclusive Woodworking’s dedicated team of installation professionals installs the product using a phased approach that accommodates the other trades involved such as stone, tile, glass, electrical and appliance installers. After the final phase of installation, touch-up occurs and a punch-list is created to ensure everything is complete.
