MIAMI, FL - Focused Logistics is proud to announce the successful completion of the FF&E installation into the newly renovated 100 room Albion Hotel located in the heart of historic South Beach - in Miami, Florida.

Director of Business Development Phillip Sutphin tells HD News “this is another marquis property that was awarded to Focused Logistics because of our reputation for being able to handle logistically complex projects in challenging locations.”

This project was challenging for several reasons” Focused Logistics Project Manager Alex Castro tells us, “Working on a project in South Beach can become very complicated because of the historic nature of the buildings and the space constraints of the historic buildings”. We were able leverage our parent company Stevens Worldwide Van Lines nationwide connections to secure warehousing just outside of city where rates were significantly less while not sacrificing the required demanding service.

Specialized delivery equipment was also needed to accommodate the extremely small delivery area which was basically a well-traveled alleyway. Focused Logistics utilized low-clearance (but smaller) 26' trucks for all deliveries, making for a more challenging deliveyr schedule but keeping all construction activities out of the hotel guests' view, making for a happy client!

Our in-house travel department was also able to secure national account pricing for local housing, keeping our crews within minutes of the project, allowing them to work the necessary hours to keep the project on schedule when needed, without a difficult commute.”

Project Manager of the general contractor, First Finish, Inc., Robert Guedes says “Focused Logistics was not only chosen for their reliability, but also because they could provide more than just installation. They also easily handled the liquidation of the property’s existing furnishings, which for us is no small matter and especially in historic South Beach. We were so happy with Focused Logistics we look forward to work with them again”
