York County contractor launches interior design business
A Springettsbury Township general contractor has started a new business that hopes to literally change the look of York County.
Paul S. Collins, owner of Paul S. Collins General Contractor LLC, opened Fit and Finish Design, also based in Springettsbury Township, in May. The interior design firm provides services for residential and commercial clients in York County and surrounding areas and complements the services already provided by the contracting business, Collins said.
"I work with a lot of high-end clients that were seeking these kinds of services, so instead of going through a third party, I figured we'd take care of it ourselves," he said. "Having this new business will help streamline my clients' projects for quicker completions."
Kimberly Boomer has been hired as Fit and Finish’s vice president and will take the lead in providing interior design services, which include architectural design, space planning, customized interior finishes and consultations.
Though Fit and Finish will be working hand-in-hand will Collins' contracting business, it will also take on projects of its own. For now, Collins and Boomer will take the helm of the new business on an appointment-only basis. Collins anticipates growing and expanding to include more staff and a physical address for the business within the year.
A graduate of the now closed Bradley Academy for the Visual Arts, Boomer holds a certification from the National Council for Interior Design Qualification and is certified for LEED, or Leadership Energy and Environmental Design, a system for ranking a building's environmentally friendly features. Boomer worked previously as senior interior designer at K2M Design in Baltimore.
"Having worked in an urban setting like Baltimore, I’m excited to bring something new and different from a design perspective to York," she said.
