Our approach to design centers around one core concept: Response. We believe good design serves a need, but great design responds to it. What does that mean? If a building is a tool we use to help us live our lives better, then our job is to craft a personal, individualized tool that you use to amplify your life, business and to achieve your goals and dreams.
We know great design truly makes a difference – in the way businesses function, teams collaborate and families grow.
That’s why we strive to bring a spirit of collaboration to each and every project, frequently teaming up with architects, engineers, contractors and other consultants who contribute to the process of designing and building environments.
While we work to build new environments for businesses, governments and families, we also work to preserve and protect the one environment we all share. That’s why we work to incorporate sustainable design into all of our projects and are LEED (Leadership in Energy & Environmental Design) certified – making sustainability an i5 design standard.
What Makes Our Design Unique?
Our process begins and ends with listening. We meet with you, chat with you, and listen to your story, your needs, your goals and your dreams. All the while, we’re imagining and planning the best design to meet and enhance your unique values. Then, we employ state-of-the-art software, systems and procedures to manage and complete our design process.
We have over 40 years of combined experience in design and construction, enabling us to design with an understanding of your contractor’s responsibilities. We have NCIDQ certified and LEED accredited professionals on staff and are equipped with the technology, resources and – most importantly – expertise to complete your project on time and within budget.
Our experience is as varied and diversified as our client base. We’ve created corporate offices, drill instructor schools and have conducted residential remodels and private railcar renovations. We continually and consistently apply our unique design process to create solutions that exceed client expectations and enhance the lives of those who work, live and function within our spaces.
We have a little theory…
We like to imagine that good design is like eating ice cream. Yummy, right? When you go to scoop out your serving of that chocolate chip cookie dough ice cream, you’re not going to pull a teaspoon out from your utensil drawer. No, if you’re like the rest of us you’d probably choose an ice cream scoop. And when you start to chow down, you’re not going to use a ladle – no, you’ll use a regular ol’ silver spoon. Good design is like a spoon – each spoon has a different purpose and enhances the functionality of what you’re setting out to do. We’re the company that helps you decide which spoon to use, then puts it right in your hand.
