KHS&S art, production and field teams are experts in delivering themed construction. We support project teams with qualified personnel to sign off on master models and first articles, in-house, or with the client. We monitor integral colors/textures and have great success setting up rigging and dry fitting elements to ensure precise field installation. We offer design modification as needed to ensure design intent, meet budget constraints and ensure installation accuracy. KHS&S continually evaluates new products and can assist in vendor sourcing, based on skillset and expertise. Since theming projects are very detailed, we have a system in place to track all parts of the project and monitor progress; ensuring a project is delivered on time and with exceptional authenticity.

Important to the Art Direction component of the project, will be the collaboration of ownership, architects/designers and KHS&S to identify design intent and ensure that it is achieved through an extensive mock-up and sample materials program. From this program, ownership and the architects/designers will govern the finished product and experience the products from design through first article.
