After contracts are awarded, we start to work on the shop drawings with a combination of field measurements. Once the shop drawings are approved, we release it to our overseas factories. They cut the stones to size and finish the edges as required by the approved shop drawings. Each finished products is carefully crated or palleted and then loaded into containers for shipment.
