_strategic_planWhether you're a current or future architecture or engineering firm leader, embrace these six guiding principles to keep yourself and your employees engaged, and your firm vibrant and growing. 

  1. Customer service and quality
    We provide outstanding customer service and develop great  client relationships. Our philosophy is to maintain loyal, repeat customers. On a project-by-project basis, we emphasize quality over profitability, keeping our eye on overall firm.

  2. Mutual respect
    Our practice is based on mutual respect. We are classless in our relationships with each other. We do whatever it takes to get a project done successfully. Everyone, at times, does all levels of work. The leadership team makes decision by consensus.

  3. Vitality
    We maintain a balance of work, fun, energy, renewal, and revitalization. We are proud of the firm, the work we do, as well as our co-workers.

  4. Learning organization
    We empower staff to take initiative and when a mistake is made, learn to make it.

  5. Design quality
    We aspire to improve the quality of all our design work.

  6. Project types
    While we desire a mix of small and large projects, we especially value the design opportunities offered by freestanding versus interior improvement projects. Larger projects offer exciting professional challenges as well as the potential for greater profit. We anticipate growth in the size of the firm to accommodate these larger projects.
