In the beginning for Richard, designing fine woodwork simply was not enough. He continued his quest for excellence by starting his own manufacturing business, which continued for 16 years. With a firm production background, he could now start focusing on expanding the quality design portion of the business and knew that it would take a team of professionals to make his new venture – Building Innovations, LLC – succeed. With such success in the commercial side of the business, coupled with a high demand for residential kitchens, Richard knew that he needed to have a sector of the business solely dedicated to kitchen design.
Richard knew you are only as good as the professionals on your team. Richard has a great team with many years of design experience in many facets of the home, including kitchens and baths, wine cellars, outdoor kitchens and more.
