CGG is the gateway to numerous and diverse sources of furniture, fitting and equipment (FF&E) around the world, from high quality volume manufacturers to specialist crafts based suppliers. In addition to its extensive first-hand knowledge of these suppliers, the team travels on behalf of clients to find the finest local products especially suited to a particular project and advises on their optimum mix with quality imports. On occasion, budget dictates that items originally specified by the designers have to be substituted. It is at this point that CGG’s knowledge of suppliers is particularly valuable.
Equally important, the Company’s appreciation of design intent and brand values means that the alternatives it puts forward preserve the style and standards. Designers and clients are always consulted to ensure they have confidence in the proposed substitutions. The CGG buying teams know how to purchase the right product at the best possible price and then how to handle the quality control, expediting, global transportation, warehousing and delivery to ensure that the FF&E arrives to schedule ready for immediate installation.
In addition, when our brief includes installation we produce Gantt charts and critical path analysis to interface with the main contractor.
