Our Story

Experience Counts.

NBI was established in Newport Beach in 1982 by Jim Hegenwald, who is currently the dealer principal and project manager. We focus on the Southern California area, but have installations all over the country.

“The details are not the details. They make the design.”

Worksurfaces that move up and down allow the user to be active during the day to avoid static body positioning at the workstation. Associates appreciate having the flexibility of movement at their station; allowing them to be productive and comfortable at the same time!


Comprehensive Solutions

As the Orange County bank interior design experts serving Southern Ca. NBI is well-versed in working with team-oriented organizations, or individuals. We make a point to understand how each team member likes to operate, everyone having different methods and ways of doing things. We try to get this understanding right away, as making the process run smoothly is our ultimate goal. Our aim is to make each team member comfortable, and to make asking questions or making requests as easy as possible. We always let designers know that anything they can conceive of, we can make. With our line-up of local fabricators, we can design and produce custom sizes and shapes at non-custom prices! Our clients enjoy our flexibility of being able to make just about anything at a very reasonable cost.
