Work on each client’s project begins with a team of specialists getting acquainted with the interior design project in detail, interviewing the client, inspecting the site, and marking out the area. After reviewing suppliers’ proposals and agreeing with them with the client, the team, if necessary, procures materials. Then comes the responsible stage of mechanical, electrical, construction and fit-out work, installation of millwork, and furniture. The project is handed over only after the joint inspection of the object.

Working on projects in Hong Kong, Crosstec Group Holdings Limited provides fit-out construction services as the main contractor. When working on projects in other Asian countries, the company engages its own contractors or local subcontractors and assigns its own foreman who inspects the quality of work and ensures that projects are implemented according to schedule.
