As a team we begin the design dialogue and process by establishing and nurturing the relationships and communication of ideas that will be critical to the design process. Trust, mutual respect and a well-established system of communication are the keys to building productive, meaningful and lasting working relationships. Our team strives to celebrate the site and facility with design solutions inspired by the regional vernacular, local materials and the sense of place inherent within each site, and we dedicated to advocating sustainable design and construction methods on every project we undertake.

Leading by example, our firm's management team are LEED Accredited Professionals, as is much of our professional staff. Our Team's core values: Passion, Creativity, Agility, Approachability, and Enduring allow us to successfully deliver Passion and Experience which permit us to offer our clients the best of both worlds.
