Fixtures, Furniture and Equipment

The Holder Group assists our clients in compiling quantified lists of FF&E required, specification of materials and equipment, location of sources and purchasing of their fixtures, furniture and equipment for various uses.

Once our project managers, estimators and purchasing agents receive design specifications, they begin the global sourcing and bidding process by targeting multiple manufacturers for each line item. After collecting and reviewing bids, project managers finalize recommendations and create line-item sales quotations for client review. We create and place POs as rapidly as possible after client approval.

As with any purchasing process The Holder Group performs, the procedures remain similar.  Typically, these procedures entail:

FF&E Identification and Purchasing
- Compilation of FF&E list
- Establish quantities required
- Locate competitive vendors for each item and prepare bid lists with contact information
- Preparation of Requests for Proposal to various vendors
- Conduct fair and competitive bid process for each aspect of FF&E purchasing
- Review bids and expected lead times
- Prepare delivery schedules and work in conjunction with the CM or GC for timely arrival of materials, furniture and equipment
- Track deliveries and fabrication
- Arrange for independent trucking when necessary
- Logistical control of FF&E phased deliveries, staging areas, temporary storage

Additionally, we assist our clients in verification of invoices, payment authorization, deposit schedules and other logistical aspects of FF&E procurement.
