At TAG, we specialize in planning, designing and managing a
wide array of projects from public sector and medical to biotech,
retail and industrial manufacturing facilities. But, at the
heart of all our building ventures is the understanding that
for you – the client – it’s not really about
What’s most important is your operation – how your
business or organization functions.
We believe that a successful building project is one that translates
your unique processes and workflow into a well-conceived, optimally
designed facility that not only supports your operation, but

7 Steps to Building Potential®
How to Maximize Value in your Next Project
of Thumb: Integrate.
Well-designed and integrated facilities and processes are
important elements in achieving operational effectiveness.
Process management creates efficiency and synergy by integrating
a spectrum of elements – including equipment, people,
products, systems, space, and infrastructure – in a well-orchestrated
flow. Achieving an optimal operational flow requires a broad-picture
view, as well as a detailed understanding, of your business
As businesses grow and expand, operational processes often
take shape in an ad hoc fashion and are “force fit”
into the current environment or building structure. These processes
are frequently inadequate for achieving real efficiencies or
delivering the agility needed to respond quickly to changing
market conditions or customer demands.
Effective process management, and corresponding design considerations,
can play a vital role in allowing you to streamline operations
and increase flexibility. The way your equipment should ideally
function, as well as the supporting utilities and infrastructure
required, must also be understood and integrated into the overall
environment to ensure their proper implementation and ongoing
Genlyte and CFAN Manufacturing Facilities —
San Marcos, Texas
While Genlyte, a lighting fixture manufacturer, and CFAN, a
manufacturer of composite parts for the aerospace industry,
create significantly different products, their challenge was
the same – how to rapidly expand their production facilities
while streamlining their processes and dramatically improving
Both companies selected TAG International as part of their
expansion project team.
The Genlyte project entailed the creation of a new manufacturing
facility that would allow the company to relocate and effectively
integrate two disparate divisions, while maintaining each division’s
individual identity. The CFAN project, on the other hand, required
the re-configuration and expansion of an existing facility —
doubling square footage and more than quadrupling production
capacity — without interrupting current production requirements
and meeting tight delivery schedules.
In both scenarios, TAG provided the essential knowledge and
proven expertise needed to meet each company’s unique
goals and operational requirements. Using lean manufacturing
principles, TAG employed a fast-tracked approach that enabled
CFAN and Genlyte to grow their production capabilities rapidly,
while achieving dramatically new levels of efficiency.
