Founded in 2012, MY HAMMERHEAD SOLUTIONS (HHS) provides finish carpentry, décor installation and lite general contracting services primarily for nationwide retail operators with a strong emphasis in grocery environments. HHS is the sister company to Commercial Design Services (CDS), a leader in retail design and décor manufacturing. HHS is the exclusive installation company for all CDS manufactured products. This strategy of providing installation services with products designed and manufactured by sister companies is a very strategic and powerful offering. There is an inherent exchange and distribution of design intent and manufactured product knowledge within the company(s) when all services are provided with a “Concept to Keys” approach. The customer benefits from a single point of contact making the overall project management experience more efficient requiring less client management input and resources. In addition to providing installation services for CDS, HHS provides installation, pre- construction and limited general construction services to HHS direct client relationships.
