DIGIFABSHOP

Digifabshop is a highly agile digital fabrication company specializing in custom architectural interiors.

Responsibilities:

Orchestrated all aspects of project coordination and vendor management in manufacturing the millwork for the eatery chain CAVA. I worked within the production schedule to ensure the timely dissemination of cut sheets/fabrication drawings, and necessary raw material/hardware was onsite well before fabrication kickoff. Due to an increased demand beyond our shop's capacity, I worked one on one with outsourced vendors to keep to the internal production schedule and maintain a high level of quality control. Additionally, I oversaw a group of three engineers in developing custom designs, updating designs for more efficient fabrication/installation, creating a component catalog for architects/clients, and releasing cut files to the shop floor.

Additional responsibilities:

  • Served as a key point of contact and disseminator of information among Project Management, Engineering, and Production teams.
     

  • Conducted material and vendor searches to source and estimate costs for new materials, requested quotes for hardware, materials, and services from suppliers and subcontractors.
     

  • Worked with purchasing department to ensure that bills of materials and vendor information were translated into clear and timely purchase orders.
     

  • Compiled packing lists, issued shipping requests, and coordinated with logistics teams to assure that outgoing work was QC'd, photographed, packed, and delivered on time.

  • Assisted project managers and production schedulers to ensure project schedules were accurate and up-to-date.
     

  • Generated CAD drawings as part of the RFQ package.

Achievements:
