The Challenge & Opportunity

Cabinets To Go is a national retailer of Cabinets, Countertops and Flooring with over 72 retail locations and continuing to expand. SFV Services is one of Cabinet To Go’s primary vendors for retail store build-out, new construction, fixture installation, rollout services and on-going facilities management.

Cabinets To Go New Orleans store build-out was one of the biggest challenges and opportunities they have trusted to SFV Services. An abandoned building in New Orleans had been vacant since Hurricane Katrina and this project helped kick start the redevelopment efforts for the neighborhood. SFV was given the opportunity to design and renovate this property from the ground up.

The SFV Team quickly completed a Site Assessment to determine the extent of the damage and decay. This property offered many challenges, including the structural removal of a second floor steel mezzanine, and structural repairs to water damaged steel columns that had rusted through from the water damage and years of neglect.

The Solutions

In 16 weeks, SFV Services completed the project that included installation of new HVAC, new electrical service, new store glass store front and concrete entry walks for ADA compliance. Converting the building from what was once a single tenant configuration to a two tenant building provided Cabinets To Go with an incremental revenue opportunity.

The result, a new store that not only helped drive retail traffic, but more importantly enhances what had been a long declining neighborhood in New Orleans
