The WBG provides consultive procurement management services to organizations that are renovating or building new facilities. These organizations include but are not limited to Independent and Charter Schools, Hotels, Universities, Corporate offices, libraries, faith based schools, theaters and arenas. What sets us apart is our keen understanding of each project, which leads into the creative selection and procurement of custom and standard loose furniture, built in millwork and access to varied materials including wood, stone, metal, glass and more. The benefit to our clients is material consistency and coordination, on-time delivery and a more comprehensive understanding of project scope. This in turn allows us to achieve our most important goal of meeting the growing budget concerns of our clients while representing their specific needs in both creative and practical ways.

We work with manufacturers worldwide with one goal in mind: to meet the budget goals and specific needs of our clients in creative and practical ways.
