What can design do to promote collaborative research and development? Create loose fit and long life? Support speed to market to maximize your ROI?


Balancing Design and Cost

In highly competitive markets real estate assets need to consider location, amenities, personalized service, and “cool factor”. The design must be affordable, inspire innovation, support healing, and facilitate learning. We invite exploration of creative, distinctive solutions that are founded on an understanding of project goals, technical requirements, and defined constraints. Target Value Design and Choosing by Advantages weigh the potential impacts of different choices and inform decision-making.


Speed to Market

We understand the need to listen carefully and respond quickly. We test ideas and present creative design solutions supported by reliable cost estimates, risk mitigation plans, and a realistic delivery timeline. Concept designs are developed efficiently in real-time collaboration with you through the use of 3D virtual design tools. This process facilitates timely decision-making and accelerates the schedule, which saves cost and yields predictable results.

The team’s ability to listen and translate our requirements into a building that is innovative, adaptable, sustainable, and most importantly flexible, was nothing short of remarkable.

Commercial real estate has to keep up with evolving changes in life science, healthcare, and education. To meet the fluid requirements of tenants, a successful facility must be designed with flexibility in mind – in its leasable spaces, systems infrastructure, and amenities. With a holistic approach to architecture and engineering design, we craft solutions that consider short-term and future needs, multi-purpose use, and industry trends.
