APPROACH

APPROACH

Niche commercial and residential design-build projects deserve a specialized approach. Whatever our service, certain qualities remain.​ Tailored: ​adapting to the unique needs of each project. ​Lean: ​focusing on what adds value, not waste. ​Integrated: ​uniting the plethora of parts for a seamless process.

PLANNING

Successful projects are borne from a clear idea of what is most important. Before design, we start by ensuring a deep shared understanding of the project: objectives, criteria, and constraints. We evaluate requirements, examine all options, and save money with a clear idea of where you are going and how you will get there.

OWNER REPRESENTATION

Whether you call us your project manager, advisor, agent, or concierge, protecting your interests is our one directive. We’re in your corner. From our depth and breadth of project management expertise, you get a curated project experience saving you from the common pitfalls and stress.

CONSTRUCTION MANAGEMENT

More than just contract tendering and administration, construction management reaches far into the design phase to give you complete project oversight and control. Proactive collaboration with architects and engineers improves quality and controls cost. Construction management affords flexibility in contract forms to leverage client resources and reduce cost.

INTEGRATED DESIGN-BUILD

This is the future of construction project delivery. An advanced project flow from pre-design to closeout makes for a seamless client experience and the most successful projects. Cost control, sustainability, and innovation become possible when we involve a tailored team of experts in planning and design, jointly validate goals, and make decisions collaboratively. There is even the option for advanced contract structures to reward performance.

VALUES

VALUES

In our actions, in everything we say and everything we build, we commit to being constructive; to always moving things forward in a positive direction for all. On the horizon of our pursuit of progress remain the ideals of sustainability, harmony, and beauty.

QUALITY

Qualities paint our ineffable experience, unique to us all like our thumbprint. Even quality which is unseen is felt. And that quality we feel is what we aim to create in both service and design. We take on only a select number of projects at any given time to ensure this is so.

TRANSPARENCY

Trust is built on a foundation of transparency. This openness and honesty makes for positive and productive relationships.

COLLABORATION

Together we are greater than the sum of our parts. We assemble the team of professionals optimized to the unique values of each project. We use simple cloud-based technologies to co-locate information and harness the benefits of integrated expertise.

INNOVATION

Building is an act of creating our future. While we push the envelope technically and creatively so that we may leave the world a better place, we also take concrete steps to manage the risk inherent in doing something new.

COMMUNICATION

Building projects are ultimately social enterprises. Designed and built by people, for people, communication is the cornerstone of their success. We realize the potential of projects by mandating communication be: Productive, positive, appropriately detailed, concise, kind, honest, and timely.

SUSTAINABILITY

We rely on our built environment to sustain our life. But if this comes at the expense of our natural environment, then our building will be counter-productive in the long term. We believe it’s both possible and necessary to create harmony in both built and natural environments.
