We are very excited to be putting the finishing touches on this corporate lobby project which consisted of multiple feature walls with wave patterns, radius details and elevator wall paneling. The project was completed with a combination of over 700 solid Cherry wood slats mounted to our shop-fabricated wall system laminated with Chemetal aluminum behind the slats. The elevator wall was completed with another selection of Chemetal aluminum laminate with custom aluminum reveals and mounting system. One of our favorite projects to date!
According to ELLEDecor.com, residential cabinet trends in 2016 are all about mixing it up. From color to materials and finishes to cabinet styles, this is the time to get a little more eclectic. At Diversified Fixture, we offer cabinetry and counter tops in a variety of styles, colors and finishes to help you achieve the on-trend space of your dreams.
"This year kitchens are eschewing the perfect, polished look for a more eclectic vibe. Instead of only incorporating one or two materials, homeowners are turning to a variety of opposing styles to create a truly personalized space. " ELLEDecor.com
- Does the shop have ample space to properly store materials before being made into casework?
If not, it's possible the environment may adversely affect your finished cabinet before one piece is even cut. Our shop has dedicated shelving areas to ensure that all materials are inventoried and stored in a manner that guarantees no breakage or damage occurs.
- Does the shop have dedicated work zones to increase efficiency and minimize the risk of accidents?
Our shop has areas designated for cutting, routing, edgebanding, and assembly. There is plenty of space between each work zone, and we have mobile carts to easily move pieces from one station to the next to minimize the risks of accidents or errors.
- Is the shop able to work on more than one job at a time?
Thanks to our efficient shop layout and high-tech machines, in collaboration with our skilled employees, Diversified Fixture is able to handle multiple jobs within the same day. At any one time, our employees can be working on upwards of 3 or 4 different jobs which allows us to use our machine and labor time efficiently, ultimately providing our customers as quick of a turnaround time as possible.
- Is the shop able to allocate jobs to those who are most qualified to do them?
In a garage shop, it's often one or two people doing all the work. In our shop, numerous employees know how to perform many different functions when it comes to building a cabinet; but, what sets us apart is that we have the ability to have our employees who are most competent at a particular task lead that portion of the process. This means that your cabinet will be cut and routed by the people most capable. It will be edged by the person most capable. It will be assembled and installed by those most capable. In the end, you're not receiving a cabinet built by a person who knows a little about a lot of different steps in making a cabinet. Rather, you're receiving a cabinet built by numerous people who are specialized in that particular area of building a cabinet
At Diversified Fixture, we believe hand sketches are a great place to start as we're quickly drafting the project or taking measurements, but AutoCAD has significantly changed the way drafting is done nowadays, and thus all of our drafting is done via computer. Manual drafting is tedious, exacting, and extremely time consuming -- especially in stages of the project where many changes are being made. CAD (Computer Aided Design) on the other hand allows for easy changes, layers and very accurate dimensioning making CAD drawing extremely efficient. Additionally, CAD drawings are able to be imported to programs that allow our customers to view the drawing in 3-D, providing an accurate visualization of the finished project.
Check out some of these computer renderings of former projects drawn by our talented draftsman, Bryan Sewell.
