meeting2Ask us for a quote on a project and we’ll turn it around quick. We just completed one and won a job to help with a major water fountain project at a City of Dallas landmark facility.

Also, when we actually work on quotes, we have lavish wine decanters and blue, plastic roses present for inspiration, like Innovative’s Tim Mueller, Adam Ring and Gene Gray did in this promotional photo from 2006.

At our Houston office, the guys huddle around yellow roses but use the same decorative decanters when doing quotes.
