What We Do

DESIGN

Building better starts with design. Katerra creates clean-sheet architectural and interior solutions that optimize material efficiency, assembly, and service to substantially enhance the design process, shorten construction timelines, and decrease lifetime ownership costs.

Katerra Design also guides the stylistic direction for interior design, material sourcing, and new product design and development for Katerra and our clients.

Joining forces from some of the country’s most respected design firms, the design team focuses on distilling decades of experience into smart solutions that speak not only to form and function, but customer response, constructability, and future market projections.

SUPPLY

Katerra manages the end-to-end supply chain for product sourcing and building construction materials to substantially shorten project timelines and dramatically lower costs.

Our vertically integrated process includes design guidance, global materials sourcing, stringent supplier qualification, purchasing, just-in-time inventory management, efficient logistics, and on-time delivery.

Katerra drives value by aggregating demand, removing excess layers and cost in the value chain, and sourcing globally to meet needs locally.

MANUFACTURING

Katerra brings decades of construction experience from the field into the factory. By pairing technology with controlled and predictable delivery strategies, we can avoid common production disruptions due to weather, market conditions, and labor issues. By overseeing our own manufacturing facilities everything from products like casework to prefabricated wall panels to next trends in construction materials we can improve quality and efficiency, while reducing time to market and assembly in the field.

CONSTRUCTION

Katerra’s construction team is a vertically integrated, direct general contractor, committed to driving innovation and time vs. cost efficiencies across building types. This diverse group integrates all of Katerra’s design, supply chain management, logistics, and manufacturing expertise as an extension of traditional site building methods. Katerra Construction continually seeks the best technical solutions and aggregates those to create highly efficient construction processes.

TECHNOLOGY

Katerra partners sophisticated Building Information Modeling (BIM) tools with computational design and proprietary software solutions to directly connect design with the supply chain to enable real time pricing and true Design for Manufacturability (DFM). This enables unprecedented cross-disciplinary project management, economic transparency, and efficiency from the earliest design studies through final project delivery.

QUALITY

Every decision we make considers the impact that decision will have on our customers. Each Katerra supplier is measured by capabilities in technology, quality, responsiveness, delivery, cost, and environmental and social responsibility.
