DJ’s Landscape Management
Grand Rapids, MI
DJ VanderSlik acquired an existing building on the corner of Broadmoor and 44th and hired First Companies to complete a full renovation for his new administrative office. When entering the new office, it is clear this company is in the landscape management business. Eye-catching photos of scenes in nature line the walls, with the use of wood, color, a botanical motif and live plants all bringing in the beauty of nature throughout the office. The architect and interior designer worked together to create a timeless look that conveys the company’s business and brand.
While the construction work progressed well, and without any major challenges, the small lot size (just under an acre) made for a tight space to operate within and manage logistics. The renovation included replacing the roof and putting in a new parking lot for customers. First Companies managed the interior design of the office as well as the construction.
“Our relationship with First Companies goes back many years. I am very familiar with the quality of the company’s work and I knew that First Companies could handle what I wanted to do. I was very impressed with the work they did for Heeren Brothers and at Heritage Pointe. While we had a bit of a ‘floating’ budget and timeline, the project was completed within the parameters we agreed upon. My experience working with First Companies was very good. Our project manager stayed on top of everything and kept us well informed; and the team did a great job with the interior design and finishing touches.”
