We consult with an excellent group of civil, structural, mechanical, and electrical engineers, for projects that require such specialized knowledge. We hire the same engineers repeatedly and have great working relationships with them. With the aid of our consultants, we offer full architectural/engineering services for projects with construction costs of up to $10M.
We have a sincere interest in sustainable design and in helping to preserve the earth's resources. As technological advances are continually making green design more affordable, we see few reasons not to invest in ecologically conscious construction. We discuss with our clients the advantages of proper building siting and landscaping features, the use of solar angles, efficient fenestration, sustainable materials, and renewable heating/cooling systems, presented in terms of long term energy savings and as responsible choices as stewards of this planet.
Hands-On Project Leadership
For the past 20 years, we have guided our projects with a unique style of "hands-on" leadership from start to finish. Our design team leads each project from initial design concepts and design development through construction drawings and site administration and observation services. This ensures that vital details are not lost along the way. We carefully shepherd each design during the rigorous process of transforming sketches into built reality.
