The heart and soul of what we provide. Our comprehensive architectural services include conceptual and schematic design, design development and construction documentation, assisting with contractor bidding and/or negotiating and construction contract administration. Architecture embodies all we touch. And we are a combination of artists and tacticians, imagining, coordinating and creating some of the world's most iconic places.
We combine global reach with a tremendous local touch. Our commitment to our communities allows us to effectively navigate local regulatory approval processes from platting subdivisions to zoning and permitting. We also handle issues of site analysis, access, circulation, parking, urban design, local development guidelines and placemaking. It's the entire picture. Always.
We are taskmasters at every level. The fears of most clients stem from lack of transparency, slipping time frames and rising budgets. Our business-savvy project managers offer technical expertise that contributes to streamlined, on-time, within-budget projects. Our process includes design-quality management reviews and consultant coordination, budget management, monthly reporting, design scheduling and design-fee cash flow forecasting and trending. All results. No surprises.
We stretch the design boundaries daily, but always with a practical guide. Our highly experienced in-house team of structural engineers consistently communicates with the architectural team to ensure structural considerations are incorporated into designs from day one. This close cooperation translates into buildings that simply work.
Our award-winning interior design group, one of the largest in the nation, offers creative and intelligent responses to your goals and requirements. We know how to listen and infuse your organization's personality into a space.
Sustainability is infused into all that we touch. We build energy simulation models early in our process to help inform decisions made in our design studios. Our approach is collaborative and integrated, focused on conserving resources, achieving energy independence, reducing greenhouse gas emissions and effectively improving your bottom line.
