The nature and attributes of each client and each project are individually examined to ensure that our projects properly respond to the aesthetic, environmental, economic and technical requirements of both occupants and owners.
Our team members have been involved in projects of almost every type of facility, from new construction, to adaptive reuse to historic restoration, including multi-family housing, governmental facilities, schools, corporate and commercial offices, retail recreation and technical spaces.
The goals and objectives of our projects are accomplished within specific parameters including but not limited to time schedules, project budgets, organizational efficiency, tenant comfort, life safety codes, LEED guidelines and the Americans with Disabilities Act, all with absolute attention to our clients’ programs.
