Our Construction Team
Our team includes skilled craftsmen, finish carpenters and tile setters. We provide most of the construction trades and strive to complete our projects with as much in-house staff as possible. Our subcontractors include our plumber and electrician, who we have worked with for over twenty years, as well as our granite fabricator and hardwood flooring specialist. We choose our partners carefully and we supervise them to ensure the highest quality. Each Design Manifest employee and partner shares the company’s goal to go above and beyond the call of duty. Our foremen have combined experience of over 100 years. They are knowledgeable, courteous and respectful of you and your property.
Our Office and Shop
Our showroom is a great resource to our clients. We have several cabinetry types, door styles and finish options. We feature counter samples, fabrics, tiles, flooring samples and literature. This is where the aesthetic and color scheme of your design will come together. We also have a shop that is fully equipped. We have the ability to fabricate projects onsite when needed, avoiding costly delays in production.
Our office and workshop is located in Bala Cynwyd – within 15 minutes from everywhere in Lower Merion. We know the area and the architecture of the homes very well. In fact, it is very likely that we have designed or remodeled a kitchen or bathroom within a few blocks of your home! It is quick and convenient for us to come out to your home for meetings, or to make an emergency repair.
