PLANNING

At Alternate Resources we   believe that creating a bridge between thoughtful design and smart purchasing drives optimal results. We look at the company’s vision, study the scope of work and help steer the project efficiently. Always ready and  responsive when plans change and priorities shift – thinking about what comes before and after by planning ahead to balance budget with design intent.

DESIGN SERVICES

Every project is unique. Our Team is positioned to interpret the distinctive design direction of our clients. Alternate Resources was built on the concept that a good designer understands how to purchase, and a good purchasing agent clearly understands the design intent.  Our years of experience coupled with our intimate knowledge of sourcing enables us to create an experience to delight the guest.

PURCHASING

Our Purchasing Team leverages its powerful purchasing platform to secure competitive pricing, quality sourcing and the due diligence to minimize risk and maximize outcomes. We take an agile project management approach with constant  communication, detailed analysis, reporting and financial expertise to maintain focus and accountability throughout the life cycle of a project.

DELIVERY & INSTALL

We provide expertise from start to finish by collaborating with a qualified network of vendors, partners and talent resources to meet client expectations.  Working closely with the project logistics team, we are able to problem solve in real time and handle the many moving parts and complexities around delivery, damage control and installation to ensure for a smooth opening.
