the projects not initially awarded to RKW International, our
services were later requested and utilized on a consulting basis
to assist and rectify situations with the stone work for hotel
projects in Cleveland, Ohio, Pentagon City, Marina del Rey, California,
and Double Bay, Australia. RKW International's expertise enabled
the general contractors of these projects to resolve complications
and problems encountered with the supply of substituted and/or

have devoted nearly 20 years of research, travel and fabrication
analysis to ensure that the supply of marble materials for projects
is the very best. I personally create the marble take off, coordinate
the sourcing of the materials, generate the estimate, coordinate
and combine specified materials from various countries, submit
the project material estimate, oversee the shop drawing and cutting
ticket process, meet and coordinate with the interior designers,
contractors and representatives on a regular basis to create
the approved marble range control groups, and finally, I match
each fabricator best suited for a particular element of the project
with that specific element. In short, I am a direct supplier,
capable of completing every aspect of the supply of marble materials.
I do not use an agent or broker. From 1986 to 2005, total sales
exceeded $50 million in stone products.
the material procurement process, I inspect and approve the quarry
blocks to be purchased, oversee and inspect the polished slabbing
process, coordinate the fabricator's production process, inspect
the entire fabrication production process, and then personally
inspect nearly every shipment of material to be shipped to the
project. I have made over 90 trips to our European factories.
I also arrange and manage the shipping and delivery process and
inspect the materials upon arrival at the job site.
