Founders’ passion for business strategy guides the firm’s built work in the commercial realm.
As a closet organizational strategy geek myself, one of the things that first attracted me to Hammer & Hand was its culture of curiosity and zeal for strategic thinking. This ethos, coupled with an ongoing commitment to the philosophy of kaizen (Japanese for “improvement” or “change for the better”) has allowed the company to achieve the efficiencies necessary to deliver exceptional product at an affordable price. (I know, I know … I’ve drunk the company Kool-aid. But I’m telling you, it’s true. Our work is as fine as you’ll find anywhere, yet super price-competitive.)
Sam and Daniel are widely sought after for their business strategy brains, routinely called upon for business consulting gigs. And given how fun they find strategic management to be, it should come as no surprise that this sensibility permeates Hammer & Hand’s work in lots of ways. Commercial work, with its coming-together of design, construction and business planning, therefore represents a heady, irresistible mix for us.
In developing the new “Commercial” webpage on our site, I spoke with Daniel about what makes Hammer & Hand’s work unique in this realm. His answers make up the written content of that page (check it out – it also includes a link to a new image gallery of our commercial projects.)
“When looking for a contractor, potential commercial clients are asking themselves, ‘Who is it satisfying to work with? Who’s excited and engaged in the building process and about how it integrates with my business plan?'”, says Daniel. “As entrepreneurs, we understand. We get how brick and mortar decisions affect the bottom line and how these investments fit into the bigger picture for businesses. And this understanding allows us to help achieve the best built solutions for our commercial clients.”
