Chicago, IllinoisDownload PDF
Established in 1928, Virginia Tile has grown to be one of the premier providers of ceramic tile and natural stone to the building trade and represents the finest manufacturers and suppliers in the industry.
Virginia Tile presented the challenge of creating an inspirational showroom environment in Chicago to its design firm. They sought a professional workspace that would appeal to both residential and commercial customers while providing flexibility to service clients as well as showcase and display a complete range of product samples varying in style, size and weight.
m Coy Group was brought in during the development stage to collaborate with the design team and Virginia Tile to create clever and cost effective solutions within the environment. In addition to the reception counter, a variety of custom tables and vertical display units, the m Coy Group developed a low profile rail cleating system with strategically spaced thin and inconspicuous rails to display the samples. Our solutions were highly flexible and interchangeable, discreetly strong and did not compete with the products.
With our design thinking approach and ability to work with designers and retailers, m Coy Group brought unique problem solving abilities to the team and met the challenging conceptual objectives, budget requirements and schedule. The challenging prototype store successfully met the concept objectives while achieving the operational needs, budget and schedule of Virginia Tile. The services m Coy Group provided for the project included:
- Fixture development;
- Material sampling, prototyping, testing and fixture mock-ups;
- Integrity based value engineering™; and
- Fixture package fabrication, logistics and installation.
The award-winning Virginia Tile showroom in Chicago, Illinois earned recognition from Chain Store Age magazine.
m Coy Group was selected for this high profile assignment because of our reputation for attention to detail, our commitment to quality, our commitment to get the job done on time as designed and our capability to work with a variety of materials and technologies.
