The firm is also looking to bfi to resolve certain key acoustical concerns within the work environment and has asked us to evaluate all move management issues for contents and technical equipment. The assignment is slated for an October 2010 installation. The team of Scott Treffeisen and Jeannine Stroming worked diligently to meet all time and cost objectives and coordinated the Furniture, fixtures and equipment lease package.

bfi was introduced to this client by an Owner’s Rep firm that worked with the New York Team most notably on a flagship BMW Showroom. The Owner’s Rep had complete confidence in our ability to manage complex assignments in a professional manner. To that end we were tasked with coordinating all aspects of the relocation from existing office space to a new location 280 Park Avenue in New York City. The scope included movement of personnel, computer equipment, video teleconferencing technologies and sensitive files and records. Additionally, we procured, delivered and installed all furnishings from a variety of manufacturers including the Chairman’s Suite, resulting in a seamless project execution in late July 2010. As an added service we arranged for some of the existing furnishings to be donated to a certified not for profit enabling Essex to secure a full value tax write-off in lieu of contending with a conventional liquidation process. Geoff Frischman along with NY Project Management was assigned the opportunity presented to the branch.
You may not be familiar with the name Pinnacle Foods but you certainly know the brands they own; Aunt Jemima, Birds Eye, Duncan Hines, Hungry-Man, Log Cabin, Mrs. Paul's, Swanson, and Vlasic just to name a few.
bfi worked with Gensler Architectural to assist Pinnacle Foods in moving to their new corporate office in Cherry Hill, NJ. We provided relocation services and new office furniture.
bfi was chosen due to their reputation and Herman Miller brand furniture that they represent. The move was completed on July 23, 2010.
bfi recently relocated the furniture and contents from Newark’s Essex County Prosecutor’s central office to two new locations. bfi created a drawing showing the furniture in it's new home with the mission to re-use as much as possible (to save dollars) while still making the space functional. bfi ordered some new furniture to go along with the mostly existing furniture to make it work. bfi was also responsible for cleaning and sanitizing the product and making it look as close to brand new as possible.
Essex County wanted a company that had proven strategic partners and one that had the on staff capability to project manage these sub contractors (i.e..moving company, cleaning company, furniture rehab company). In addition, they wanted a company that had proven they could handle a project of this level of complexity. The move was completed in April of 2010.
bfi was chosen to furnish the Municipal offices, Police department and all miscellaneous areas, in the newly constructed Township of Livingston Municipal Complex located on South Livingston Avenue. We designed the furniture layout and developed the color scheme for all furniture in conjunction with the client's architectural finishes. Practically all of the furniture was purchased via the NJ State Contracts.
The project began in January 2010 and the furniture installation is almost completed. Once the construction is completed bfi can complete the furniture installation.
The new municipal building in Edgwater is going to look terrific, thanks to the efforts of bfi and the architectural firm, Arcari & Lovino of Little Ferry. bfi partnered with Arcari & Lovino to design and furnish the interior of the 25,500 sq. ft. building. The Borough of Edgewater purchased the furniture from bfi through the NJ State Contract. This enabled them to obtain new furniture within their budget, but also take advantage of the fact that the design and planning was included in the sale of the furniture. This project has been four years in the planning, and is scheduled to be completed in the Fall of 2010.
DCH BMW of Bloomfield and Freehold has acquired the services of bfi for the ground up renovations of their two facilities. The Bloomfield facility is slated to be completed by the end of July, while the Freehold dealership has a December completion goal. bfi was awarded the projects based on its professional reputation and experience in furnishing Automotive Dealerships. DCH BMW has chosen to furnish its two dealerships with Herman Miller furniture products.
Business law firm, Day Pitney, hired bfi to furnish its new 35,000 sq. ft. office facility located at 1 Jefferson Road, Parsippany, NJ. The move from Florham Park, NJ will be completed by mid August. bfi was hired based on its excellent reputation as a full service business interior resource, providing consultative services, product solutions and technical assistance for office relocation projects. Some of the areas to be furnished by bfi include conference rooms, lounge areas, and workstations.
Fusion Brands is a multi national Corporation that creates innovative beauty, cosmetics and fragrance products.
bfi provided a host of products and a co-coordinated and controlled management process to meet critical deadline for Fusions’ new a flagship, NYC Office environment.
bfi was hired to solve a crisis management issue. Fusion had retained the services of a competitive dealership only to experience complete disappointment. The competitor was closing its doors due to insolvency after Fusion paid the other dealer a substantial deposit. bfi was retained to control time and cost issues, re-specify products and in essence problem solve a distribution issue what could have been disastrous and embarrassing for Fusion and the designer. We got the assignment immediately on track. Without our intervention managed carefully by Sharon Portnoy in the NYC Office, the client would not have been in the space, on time within acceptable budget parameters. We came in to rescue a bad situation, turned it around and delivered a first class result.
The project was completed in January 2010.
