Please describe the project specifications.
We provided a custom outdoor BBQ covers.

What was the purpose of this project? What did the client request?
The client requested that the custom BBQ covers are to protect from weather related elements such as dust and rain in order to preserve the beautiful appearance of outdoor BBQ units in their back yard.

What is unique or complex about the project?
The complexity of this project was that it came in multiple units with all different shapes and sizes. This project definitely required a complex sewing skill sets. We had to make covers to work around existing umbrellas and other fixed units. No single cover was a simple box cover, but instead precisely custom fitted with fasteners attached. This project was unique and valuable one especially for the project manager worked on this given that it was her first custom fitted BBQ cover requirement to add to her experience as well as A&R’s project portfolio.

What were the results of the project?
This custom project allowed us to build our portfolio added to our diversification ability. Also as a result, we have received multiple inquiries for similar projects.
