  • #Repost @thebravitasgroup ・・・ There are sometimes Silver linings in tough environments . We are devastated that so many tradespeople have been furloughed in this environment. We have looked at a few opportunities where we can safely keep people working and get some defer maintenance performed. @franklinfloors_nutley has been working all week at #vault491 to refurbish the hardwood flooring. We also especially appreciate The MAD cleaning crews who are working tirelessly to keep our buildings super clean . #thebravitasgroup #montclairnj #floorrefinishing @bonafloorcare •

  • What we love about what we do is coming up with solutions for unique business problems. This high tech software company at #vault491 wanted the ability to have a large flexible space that could accommodate a large number of people or be split into two for smaller group meetings. We installed an actual overhead garage door in the space and with a push of a button the space becomes one big conference room or two smaller ones. We then had custom tables made by @shaunkillman that are on casters that can be pushed together or pulled apart .  Shouldn’t your Unique Business be in a unique Bravitas building . #thebravitasgroup @jackfinnandcompany @sionas_architecture #garagedoors #glassgaragedoors #conferencerooms #conferenceroomtable
