Project Management

PROJECT MANAGEMENT

A project’s success comes down to leadership and people skills. We ask good questions, keep discussions focused, encourage and build consensus, stay flexible, exercise good judgment and remain uncompromising in the quality of service we provide to create projects that are on time, on budget, and enhance what organizations do.

ARCHITECTURAL DESIGN

The facilities we help clients design are generational investments. They must be timeless, engaging from all directions, and flexible to changing trends. They must be fundamentally sustainable and efficient to maintain. From predesign and programming to schematic design, design development and construction documentation, we will help you develop solutions that match your desired outcomes.

Interior Design

INTERIOR DESIGN

Furniture that is appropriate to the function and intended ambience. Light fixtures that complement the architecture. Fabrics and color that tie exterior and interior architecture into a pleasing composition. Using color, texture, and materials, we carefully and purposefully meld interiors with architecture to create spaces that evoke emotion and inspire people.

CAMPUS, SITE & FACILITY PLANNING

Planning does more than develop a road map for development. It creates a shared vision to discover the best solutions to complex problems and opportunities. We exam all factors that influence an organization’s decision for growth and change, from real-estate such as location and site characteristics to design considerations, engineering criteria, environmental impact, and community integration.

We base our conclusions on an understanding of existing conditions and evaluated program needs rather than emotional responses to perceived needs. By working together, we find the right solution to fit the unique needs individual organizations bring to the process.
