METHODOLOGY / APPROACH

INTEGRATED DESIGN PHILOSOPHY

We strongly believe that high performing building design can be created by the seamless integration of all design elements from conceptualization to construction. As an integrated design team, we work collaboratively and efficiently with a team of engineers from the start. We disclose the design process throughout each stage to ensure that the client clearly understands how their needs and requirements are being met and translated into the design.

MANAGEMENT PRINCIPLES

Three major management principles shape our approach to each project:
  • LEADERSHIP. A clear vision of the assignment at hand, providing direction to the entire consultant inter-disciplinary team while encouraging unique initiatives, innovative concepts and ideas.
  • DEDICATION. A fully committed consultant team with a clear commitment to Project and Client needs. We believe in personal relationships and continuity of the Principal-in-charge involvement in all project phases.
  • PROFESSIONAL VALUES. Our goal is to design projects that meet all technical requirements and safety expectations on time and within budget. Our depth of experience will bring efficiency to each project.
