full service custom FABRICATORS.
CRĒO is a full service custom fabricator. For over 30 years, we’ve been crafting the finest custom elements for a broad range of venues incorporating a multitude of materials, methods and finishes. Here is a sampling of the services we provide:
CRĒO puts tremendous emphasis on the design engineering phase of the project, expending considerable effort to develop the optimal build strategy with our clients, and then document that strategy in a highly detailed set of construction drawings. Those drawings can take the form of AutoCAD, SolidWorks, and other 3D rendering formats. Our goal is to make sure that all stakeholders are in agreement with the fabrication strategy, and that there are no surprises when the products arrive on site.
CRĒO has a dedicated R&D department that includes some of our most seasoned and innovative fabricators. Their role is to research and evaluate different materials and methods, and test theories to ensure that the intended fabrication approach will deliver the aesthetic and the performance that our clients and design partners expect.
For projects still in the planning and design development stage, CRĒO can provide a cost assessment to determine whether or not the design concepts fit within the budget. In cases where the designs appear to outstrip the budget, CRĒO can suggest value engineering options that would reduce cost.
CRĒO’s veteran project management and engineering staff are experts at studying the project’s architectural drawings and recommending options to ensure that the landscape and/or the buildings will be ready to support the installation of our custom fabricated elements. This includes examining soils reports, assessing architectural interface to minimize building penetrations, and planning for ways to discretely implement electrical components. These efforts allow CRĒO to prepare and deliver a detailed interface coordination package to the architect and general contractor early on in the process, often prior to the completion of any shop drawings.
As the installation process unfolds, CRĒO’s team of field superintendents provide the eyes and ears on the ground, gathering field verification data, proactively catching potential conflicts, and communicating with the project field team to ensure a well-coordinated installation process.
Custom fabrication is CRĒO’s core competency. Our team of experienced fabricators, all with varied skill sets, combine to produce the highest quality products across a variety of different disciplines. They bring a unique blend of construction skills and artistic talent, crafting their work with great passion and pride.
Through our own expert installers and an extensive network of subcontractors, CRĒO performs installations throughout the country. All installations are supervised by an experienced Field Superintendent who oversees the install process from start to finish, and acts as the primary liaison to the client and other trades during the install process.
CRĒO’s dedicated team of experienced Project Managers are a key piece of the overall value CRĒO brings to the project. Our PM’s, many of which have completed PMP certification courses, are well-trained and follow a disciplined process for executing their scopes of work. That proven process allows them to track and manage all aspects of a multi-faceted project, and helps them keep all stakeholders aware of the status of each element of the project, reducing the amount of time and energy our clients have to expend on CRĒO’s scope.
