Inspiration Meets the Bottom Line
We pay as close attention to rules, budgets and timelines as we do to creative design and realistic problem-solving. Guidelines are established, codes are coveted, environmental conditions are met, and people are pleased with the results. It’s where design meets the bottom line.
Sustainability as a Guiding Theme
The environment and livability are important. Healthy cities and neighborhoods are important. We incorporate these values into our own business decisions as well as our designs solutions.
Sustainability is integral to our work and is something we live and breathe. As an example, our office is a model of sustainability. The McCracken Building is a reuse of a historic building, use of re purposed and recycled materials, integrated natural daylighting, trees and site landscaping to reduce urban heat island effect, bike parking and long-term storage, as well as a bioswale to manage stormwater run-off integrated into the site design.
