CFA has Interior Designers that are licensed in the state of Tennessee and well-versed in a wide variety of computer aided software. The designer brings the client’s vision to life by creating visual presentations in 2D and 3D, as well as colored renderings, sections, and bird’s eye views.
Their vast product knowledge equips them to find the most creative solutions for furniture layouts, product specifications, work adjacencies, storage needs, wayfinding, site furnishings, and more.
CFA implements a team strategy whereby an Account Manager and Interior Designer always work together, regardless of project size.
The Account Manager takes the lead and is the first interaction with the client to determine scope of work, project goals, time frames for completion, and budget. The Interior Designer, who also attends client meetings, then balances programming information with the best function, aesthetic, and code adherence. All CFA designers are well-versed in a variety of computer software that creates visual presentation styles that best fit the project.
Effective communication is the key to the success of the team and is an essential component for meeting deadlines.
CFA’s Account Manager and Interior Designers work closely with our manufacturer partners on a daily basis to ensure client goals are met with prompt vigor. Our alliance partners support us in a variety of ways including product samples and mock-ups, specifications, customs and modifications, CAD drawings, colored renderings, and product legends packages.
CFA has created a niche in the higher education furniture market, but a college campus is really like a small city in that crosses over into several other markets.
On any given campus you will find Health Clinics, Banking, Food Service, Hospitality, and Religious centers as well as Corporate settings of private offices, meeting spaces, and public areas.
CFA partners with 134 of the industry’s leading manufacturers to ensure we can provide furniture, related services and architectural products for all of these market segments, not just for college campuses, but for corporate America as well.
