Budget Creation

We will help you develop preliminary and realistic budgets from the outset. We will also help in making suggestions and offer alternatives to guide the cost toward the budget wherever and whenever possible.

Design/Engineering/Shop Drawings

Our highly detailed shop drawings help to facilitate, push, and flush out hundreds of interior problems and actively push the job forward, which clearly saves all involved a great deal of time and accelerates the project completion.


Samples, Mockups, and Finishes

We formulate in house all of our own finishes and have full capability to produce a wide variety of AWI system finishes as well as historic reproduction, exotic, and artistic finishes of all types for every environment.


Zepsa’s philosophy maintains that the best work often comes from a small studio shop where craftsmen are well equipped and free from business concerns in order to concentrate on the task at hand. All of our shops behave as though they were individual workshops, each independently equipped, staffed and managed. Yet these shops are also fluid and flexible and expected to fully collaborate with all other shops in order to produce and execute large projects.

Project Management

Zepsa’s project managers are experienced, senior level managers very technically proficient, well versed in avoiding problems and are present to provide field survey using state of the art technology; review shop drawings as produced by the engineering department; coordinate the building site supervisors and other trades; arrange for and manage the overall installation process.


Zepsa’s work takes us, and our installers, worldwide. We anticipate installation conditions and requirements even before we order materials, ensuring a much higher level of shop controlled quality, and cutting the installation time.
