In 2014, we launched CEAS+ to leverage direct collaboration between our engineers and architects around the country through our innovative DEFI process (Design. Engineer. Fabricate. Install.). By handling every part of the process, from first napkin sketch to final product, CEAS+ makes enriching outdoor spaces with unique, custom structures easier than ever.
