Design Delivered

What makes Shea unique?

Our complete integration of designing brands and spaces? That we create experiences using all touchpoints in a space, large and small? Yes and yes. But what sets us apart even more are the custom details and touches we’re able to produce to make every project its own. Shea Design Delivered, our dedicated production/procurement group, makes magic happen for clients on a daily basis by finding and creating solutions that exceed every expectation.

Our team imagines, creates, and designs pieces and features that can’t be found anywhere else, and Design Delivered executes, assembles, and installs to bring those ideas to life—bringing a whole new level of value to the work we can do for our partners. When it comes to creativity, we have no limits: We have artisans, resources and the most talented team working to realize design dreams. Design Delivered is what helps Shea do just what we promise: Deliver on the most innovative designs in the most complete way.

We’re sharing that magic with you—watch here for an ever-changing highlight reel of some of the custom features we’ve been most proud to deliver.
