Who We Are

Our Mission

Be a nimble and responsive company, that is recognized by reputable Developers, Contractors and Architects as the “go-to” company when it comes to global procurement of architectural materials. We believe procurement must start early on in design and our mission is to embed this process as a standard workflow on projects.

Our Vision

(1) Be a household name to Developers, Contractors and Architects when it comes to Global Procurement of Materials (2) be known for our integrity, service and dedication, (3) have the privilege of working on the most iconic and game-changing projects in the US market.

We are an international company based out of New York that specializes in high-end residential, hospitality and mixed-use developments. Our group is comprised of former executives that worked as project managers and architects in Turner Construction, Arup, Zaha Hadid Architects, and AECOM.

In the US market, we work with Developers, Contractors, Architects and Interior Designers, focusing on Procurement of Architectural Finishes, FF&E, Façade/Cladding and Artwork from the international market – engaging in both the preconstruction and procurement stage of a project.
