Our production encompasses the full scope of typical FF&E items for guest rooms and common areas. We start by selecting the best suited raw materials and hardware to achieve the perfect end product. The core of what Lang & Schwander does is based on offering tailored and customized solutions to our clients. Every hotel should have unique furniture and millwork pieces tailored to its individual architecture. The team at Lang & Schwander offers a comprehensive skill set to be able to design furniture that looks great, has excellent functionality and is also durable in a contract setting. We do this by combining design, engineering and hospitality knowhow into every piece we design and manufacture.
Lang & Schwander has a team of interior designers that can take on various sizes of projects, depending on the clients needs. Sometimes this involves coordinating with a local design team to make sure the specifications match the brand standards and in other cases we are contracted to complete the full scope of interior design. Our team has worked on projects affiliated to several different hotel groups and brands in the United States and Internationally and are eager to get introduced to many more along the way. We believe in rethinking the design process, streamlining specifications and value engineering from the beginning. This ensures budgets and schedules are kept on track.
One of the most important aspects of timely project execution is the coordination of logistics. Lang & Schwander has procurement specialists that will oversee all of the shipment process from prior to leaving the factories until received at the property or temporary local warehouse. We will apply for the necessary export licenses and generate all the documentation needed for import. Coordination with our clients is crucial to select the best shipment routes and make sure that the products arrive on-time and within budget. We then support our clients in the import process, providing paperwork and experience from past projects in the region to allow for an efficient transition to the project site.
Our installation supervisors are assigned to the project from the moment products are in production up until the final punch-list inspection is completed. All our products are marked and coded to allow for efficient staging and installation. Our installation team is versed in the hospitality FF&E field and looks to solve any issues that may come up onsite in an effortless manner. The completion of the installation process is done in close collaboration with our client and local construction crew to allow potential issues to be addressed and solved immediately. Allowing Lang & Schwander to handle the installation process of the products we manufactured will ensure that schedules are kept on track and the end product is installed efficient and professionally. This is achieved by having a cohesive team review shop drawings, design packaging material, review packing lists and stage the whole installation process.
