Design Experience
Why use our Services? Companies need to keep evolving and producing more with less to stay competitive in today’s ever changing business market. This might be working with less workers or with less of a budget. Solving these problems is not easy. Companies still have to focus on their day-to-day operations, after all, and new projects typically require re-prioritizing employees job responsibilities. Also hiring new employees to fill these gaps doesn’t always make sense either. Only business owners understand how much time and effort goes into hiring an employee. There is the tax burden, benefits like health care, unemployment, and workman’s compensation. If the person does not work out the company has to start all over and go through the hiring process again from the start. In instances like this, consultants basically serve as temporary, highly skilled employees. We’re not full-time employees of the company, so it is often cheaper to use us than hire someone new. Because we switch around companies often, we’re used to a fast learning curve, and when the project is over there is no burden to let us go until the next project. We have worked on large project management jobs and simple one week jobs. We have the experience so let us help you. We have cultivated many relationships in the drafting and engineering fields. We might even be able to at least point you in the right direction to get your project done.
