Collaborative. Fit-for-purpose. Innovative. Green. Pragmatic. Progressive. These terms are often used within the real estate industry when visioning new or improved building environments. The question becomes how do these terms translate into a functioning and consistent approach to providing professional services. The simple answer is they don’t.
We believe innovation is more than owning and using the latest technology. It is assembling solutions using technology and our experience-based knowledge to capture and translate the potential embedded in the environments we create and the buildings that support our clients.
We focus on fundamentals, developing systems holistically based on science and evidence to ensure optimal performance. While we encourage free thinking and promote multiple solution paths, we actively apply our integrity management process and our experience to mitigate risk throughout the design and construction process. This is accomplished through persistent review of our work as it is developed and the built-in validation and feedback loops we employ throughout the process.
Each client’s program defines our standards, assigns authority, and delegates the tasks of coordinating review times, developing construction documents, and completing review checklists. The process is an ongoing, daily activity that ensures the continuous review of our work as each project progresses.
Lastly, we share recognition of our client’s responsibility to their stakeholders. We understand this responsibility extends to society as a whole. Our consultants and engineers embrace sustainability as it promotes resource conservation, occupant well-being, and workplace productivity.
