Project Managers, as the title implies, manage the projects that pass through MSI. They coordinate all aspects of the project to ensure timely and quality completion, on budget. This includes fostering communication and exchange of information between all departments, ensuring that deadlines are met, materials are ordered, and that fabrication is scheduled as needed. They also maintain product documentation such as drawings, specifications, purchase or ders, contracts, addenda, change orders, RFIs, work and ship tickets, etc. Project Managers serve as a quality check throughout the entire process to ensure both the standards of the client and MSI are being met. They also serve as the liaison with upper level contractors, Project Managers, and the architect.

Designers / Detailers

Designers examine the drawings of the architects and make sure that MSI’s interpretation of those drawings matches and stays consistent to the architect’s intent. They research materials, methods, and equipment needed to realize the project. Designers coordinate getting sample materials for specialty aspects of projects as well as getting quotes and estimates on subcontracting very specialized aspects of projects. They work closely with the Project Manager to ensure details are not overlooked and the project is fully realized to the client’s vision. Designers also do computer visualization of projects using 3D CAD and rendering software. Designers also create shop drawings as needed.

Engineers / CAD Draftspersons

Engineers take the work of the Designers and turn that information into practical and workable plans and drawings that can be realized to create the final product. Using AutoCad and their knowledge of MSI construction methods and their knowledge in math, geometry and materials, they form the design into a workable and buildable structure. They create drawings and optimizations for the computerized saws and CNC machines. They also work very closely with the craftspersons fabricating the product to ensure all quality needs are met and tackle challenges and make adjustments as necessary. Finally, Engineers also create and revise shop drawings.

AutoCad / Microvellum Operators

AutoCad / Microvellum Operators use the software programs AutoCad, Microvellum, and Excel to create custom casework and furniture engineering drawings. These operators are a specialized division of CAD draftspersons that use there skills to create custom casework (cabinetry), custom contract furniture, countertops (solid surface, plastic laminate, stone, stainless steel and epoxy) as well as all select, recommend, and assign all hardware associated with these items, such as drawer pulls, drawer glides, hinge assemblies, locking mechanisms and specialized cabinetry hardware.

Carpenters / Cabinet Makers / Millworkers / Finishers
Fabricators / Technicians / Machine Operators

These are the men and women that take all the advance work of the Project Manager, the Designer, the Microvellum Operator, and the Engineers and actually craft the product using the required tools and materials. These craftspersons use wood, plastic laminate, solid surface material, ployresin plastics, and an assortment of materials to create the final product. Using their fine craftsmanship, attention to detail, knowledge of materials and construction and steady hand and keen eye, they take the product the final step from paper to reality. A strong understanding of measuring systems, mathematics, geometry, and tools is needed by these artists.
