Civil | Geotechnical | Structural | Mechanical | Electrical | Plumbing | Fire Protection | Environmental

Our teaming philosophy focuses on developing long term relationships with all of our consultants.  Some  firms have been working with us for over 20 years. This allows our consultants to function as a seamless extension of our  team.

BIMBuilding Information Modeling (B.I.M.)

We utilize Building Information Modeling (B.I.M.) to develop enhanced designs and drawings. We use B.I.M. for everything from small repair projects to the design of new facilities. B.I.M. allows the firm to build each project three-dimensionally before it is constructed.  This allows for unparalleled insight into infrastructure and building shell details not available with traditional two-dimensional drawings. B.I.M. also improves coordination and communication amongst the various disciplines.  Therefore,  efficiency and accuracy are increased in the development of design documents.

Feasibility studies and master planning are another strength of the firm. We’ve completed numerous large-scale feasibility studies and master plans, including the 20-Year Master Plan for the NASA AFRC.

Additionally our firm has completed projects that required specific attention to privacy, acoustics, and security. Finally, we also incorporate modular furniture and other furnishings and fixtures ideal for the space.

Sustainable Design/LEEDSustainable Design / LEED

We are a leader in sustainable design strategies. The firm has numerous LEED-Accredited Professionals on staff. Regardless of LEED criteria,the firm strives to incorporate “green” building practices whenever possible.  This contributes additional value to projects without adding frivolous costs.

Quality Control/Change Order PreventionQuality Control / Change Order Prevention

Change order prevention is at the root of our philosophy regarding quality control. As experts in change order prevention, the firm delivers an annual seminar on the subject. The course aims to inform design professionals of contractors’ techniques for generating change order claims.  Additionally, the course offers strategies to successfully avoid them. For this reason, all of our consultants are required to attend the seminar.  Clients often attend as well.
