Client Testimonial

"Stephen Tharrett, President of Club Industry Consulting, has worked with our team to design a state-of-the-art fitness center and spa at Inverness Country Club in Birmingham, Alabama. Steve has led us through the design process for a new 24,000 square-foot club house and a 2,500 square-foot spa. Steve’s input has been invaluable. His experience in knowing the proper building layout, equipment selection, operational flow patterns and establishing standards for the staff and programs has resulted in an outstanding facility for our members. In addition, Steve’s timely input and responses to our many questions kept the design process flowing so we did not lose valuable time getting construction underway.
