Kane Consulting and Commercial Real Estate

Los Angeles

Two Clients…One Great Experience!

Kane Consulting ended October  with the coordination and oversight of furniture installations for two separate clients within 24 hours of each other. For our friends at Armor Guys in Westwood we oversaw installation of benching desks and a conference table in their new suite off of Wilshire Boulevard. For our longtime clients, Children’s Law Center, we coordinated the installation of desking in two new suites in Monterey Park.  A big thanks to Dacrey Williams and the installation teams at BBI- Commercial Office Interiors who were able to accommodate extremely accelerated schedules on both projects.

Yup, We do That Too!!

Both our Real Estate and Project Management divisions were on call to negotiate a lease for new office space,  coordinate the paint/electrical/data cabling work within and install  furniture with said space for our client, Armor Guys.  We also assisted with getting their space set up with internet and a VOIP phone system. The process happened in record time, from start to finish within the month of October (4 weeks total). So, if the task is related to getting a business set up with a new office or expanding a current business’ space, chances are– Yup, we do that too!

A Rainy Day Couldn’t Keep the Move Away…

Kane Consulting was happy to assist a long-standing client, Ventura Foods Innovation Center, with moving their test kitchen facilities from City of Industry to a new location in Brea. It was icing on top of the cake after our own Jon Stokes coordinated the build-out of their new space with the Ventura Foods’ Headquarters nearby. Congratulations Jon on a job well done! The facility looked terrific as we moved in all of the equipment and employee contents. Early morning showers couldn’t slow the move down. With our own Kim Ward at the helm, we quickly got everything moved, unloaded, and placed in time for the weekend!

Helping Those Who Help Children…

Kane Consulting is revisiting one of its very first project clients by assisting the Children’s Law Center with some space planning and furniture selection/installation. We helped them in 2005 when they moved in to their existing location in Monterey Park and we are back 10 years later as they expand to better achieve their mission. Children’s Law Center represents children who have been abused, neglected, or abandoned that come under the protection of either the Los Angeles or Sacramento County Juvenile Dependency Court systems. We hope we can get both of these new spaces ready to keep that mission strong.

Some of the new rooms in the suites being added. Once complete, they will really shine, like the children LC represents.

Good times, Great Food, and the USC Marching Band!

Lauren Richeson represented Kane Consulting at Haworth’s Grand Opening event on June 25, 2015 at their new showroom in the Citigroup Center in downtown LA. Wonderful views from the 48th floor, delicious food and drink, and a terrific new space awaited the attendees. The USC Marching band brought a bit of fun to the affair with a march through the space for the opening ceremony. Pictured is Lauren (far right) with Yvonne VanRennesse (far left) and Rachel Estavillo (2nd right) both from American Honda Motor Company and Paula Dill (2nd left) from IOS (Interior Office Solutions).
