This market sector comprises the most recurring of QPS services. Interior metal stud framing, drywall installation, and finishing are provided via subcontract to general contractors offering clients corporate office, retail, healthcare, hospitality, religious and multifamily tenant improvements. Of the market sectors serviced by QPS, commercial tenant improvement is the largest, in terms of number, and the most diverse, in terms of complexity. Services within this sector, due to the wide range of facilities in which they are provided, require QPS to remain up-to-date on the newest construction means and methods. Consequently, QPS frequently works closely with its General Contractor clients to assist them in the engineering of unusually complex installations.
In addition, as these projects are often subject to tight time and budget schedules, recurring changes and fluid work flow, QPS’ field and project management personnel remain flexible and adaptive to meet the most challenging project requirements.
Traditional corporate and industrial interior improvement projects represent a significant portion of QPS’ historical experience base. These projects reflect the full breadth and complexity of its metal stud framing and drywall installation and finishing capabilities. QPS’ dedication to quality can be seen in recent projects that include high-tech giants such as Apple, Google, Microsoft, Amazon, Netflix and others to the more traditional corporate and legal giants such as Mazda, AT&T, and Munger, Toles & Olsen.
An ever-growing market within the interior improvement area, QPS is very active in the area of retail, especially airport-based retail at Los Angeles International Airport where QPS has provided services almost continually for ten (10) years. In addition, the Company has expanded its abilities through high-end mall-based and standalone restaurant projects such as Wokano and Cal Mare.
Another area of potential growth for the Company is healthcare related projects subject to California’s Office of Statewide Health Planning and Development (OSHPD) regulations. These projects, such as the recent improvements at UCLA’s School of Medicine, are notorious for their difficult schedules and rigid standards, requiring not only superior technical expertise, but superior project management expertise as well.
As much of the newer residential development moves from single-family to multi-family housing, QPS is performing more multi-family projects such as Wilshire Towers. This recent high-rise core and shell project, in the heart of Los Angeles, is a prime example of the Company’s efforts in this area.
As the Hospitality Industry evolves, blurring the line between traditional and extended stay facilities, QPS has likewise extended its marketing efforts to projects such as Hilton Home2Suites, a high-rise extended stay hotel
