We have maintained a focus on architecture and design that lasts through the ages, receiving more than 50 design awards and citations throughout our long history. We offer exceptional experience with new site development, renovations and additions. Our designs blend innovation with tradition, making them unique, yet contributing to the existing site, its buildings, and its neighborhood.
When people have different expectations, resolution is tough under any circumstance; it is especially complicated for building programs. Our skill in bringing people together, in getting groups to be constructively involved, and in resolving disputes quickly and effectively are key ingredients in our work. The Design Retreat Workshop is the result of five decades of work with hundreds of communities.
Our firm has developed a long-standing commitment to community participation in design. Each member of our staff shares in the energy and creativity the firm brings to our efforts. Our team brings years of professional expertise from a diversity of backgrounds.
By facilitating early participation of the general contractor through our partnering process we benefit from real world construction information, costing, and detailing. Our work continues through the end of construction and into the warranty period.
