DELIVERING A VISION
Architecture is the heart and soul of what we provide. We have a collaborative design model where clients are involved at all stages. It begins with understanding their needs and evolves into a program and outline of spatial relationships. We factor in technology, infrastructure, sustainable design, future space flexibility, collaborative and outdoor environments to create a design that will help them visualize the completed project.
Proper planning is integral to all successful projects, and we have developed facilities planning services as a fundamental component of our comprehensive service offering. Our facilities planning team is an expert in all things concerning master planning, education specifications, and funding acquisition. They serve our clients as state agency liaisons, funding application specialists, master planners, and community outreach leaders.
RELATIONSHIPS ARE KEY
Not only do we confer with federal, state, and local agencies as necessary to confirm jurisdiction, permits required, any special application requirements, or pre-determined permit conditions; we also investigate, apply for and track any funding opportunities that could help maximize the impact our of clients’ project budgets. Our tenured relationships are invaluable in the process.Our clients have assured a greater sense of peace that our firm remains thoroughly involved throughout the construction phase.
Construction administration is a top priority for us. We’ve learned that this is often the most critical point in completing successful projects. Our projects are well managed and executed and remain within budget and schedule. The construction administration team, led by our Director of Construction Operations (Loic), is the bridge between the design studio and the building site. In the design phase, they help mitigate potential issues that could crop up in the field, and during construction, they ensure that work complies with contract models and specification documents.
INFUSING THE BUILT ENVIRONMENT
The art and science of a well-designed interior environment can make measurable improvements in health, productivity, and performance.
