When our clients know that they want to build but aren’t exactly sure what to build, we assist in developing a robust program that will best fit their site. Through conversation, research, and decision-making, our team establishes performance requirements and objectives that will begin to shape the project. Undoubtedly the most important phase, Programming will unify all project stakeholders and be a guiding post as decisions are made throughout the duration of the project.
Once a program is established, our team works to ensure the project’s goals are achievable. By researching zoning and building code requirements, design objectives, building costs, and schedules, our team provides an evaluation and presents the best recommendations to our clients ensuring the most impactful return.
In order for multi-phase projects to be successful, they require foresight and thoughtful execution. Essentially a “future feasibility phase” we plan out how future phases will fit the context of the current project and fabric of the community. This is achieved by overlaying current and proposed programmatic requirements, engaging early with local jurisdictions, anticipating cost escalations and producing a schedule for clients to share with stakeholders.
Building on the framework of previous phases, our team expertly provides unique design solutions. We separate ourselves by being an exceptional design partner through unparalleled communication, transparency and engagement. These characteristics allow our team to bring our clients the best value because our goal is visualize our clients expectations, not our own.
Our team uses our broad experience in project types to our advantage by approaching the design of each project uniquely. Relationships and experiences that were made when designing a school can and should be applied to designing a mixed-use apartment building.
