“Traditionally, the workflow involves the client developing a design and sending it to us. With Kawneer Collaborative, we work collectively with clients to develop the best solution for their projects from the beginning. We imagine and construct the project together,” explains Rob Huffman, Director of Kawneer Collaborative.

Kawneer Collaborative helps architects, contractors and building owners to accomplish every goal, from developing signature designs to improving performance and sustainability. This is done with the help of a multidisciplinary team of experts who conduct a comprehensive review of all aspects of design and delivery. The dedicated team uses modern, personalized, interactive environments including the development of a customer facing solution that will exchange with our manufacturing environment to offer a more robust experience. Managing design, extrusion, finishing, fabrication, assembly and glazing, Kawneer Collaborative maintains control and ensures delivery of each client’s vision.

The tailor-made service is based on five values – Collaboration, Personalization, Innovation, Quality and Respect – and feature a multi-step process.
