Combining Architecture and Engineering to Move Faster

What happens when the architect of record seamlessly integrates with a team of engineers, all under one project management system? You reduce guesswork, handoff time, and costly miscommunications.

And you get engineers on your team from the beginning of our design process — learning your brand, understanding your goals, informing design decisions, and improving function as the form takes shape.

Greater Efficiency.
Greater Clarity.

Here’s how combining architecture and engineering into one collaborative team saves you time and expense.

One Team Listens Together

We listen together so we can hear more clearly. We bring complementary perspectives on your brand, program, and goals. Then we deliver something that truly reflects you.

One Team Creates Together

Creativity doesn’t happen in a silo. Our architects and engineers work on your project together, enhance each others’ perspectives, and deliver a better result.

One Team Delivers Lower Overall Cost

It’s true — we’re not the cheapest option. But our integrated delivery system removes roadblocks. We enable the highest value (and almost always a lower cost).

One Team Helps You Make Better Decisions

With our architecture and engineering teams working together, you get better, more actionable information from day one.

What are Architecture and Engineering

In architecture, programming is the phase where strategists, architects, and interior designers collaborate with you to define your project requirements. We help you analyze your current or proposed site, plan your spaces, set an initial budget, and complete regulatory research.


You’ll get a clear understanding of project goals and constraints before design and construction begin. We’ll know we’re meeting your needs from day one.

How It Works

Step 1: Discovery

Our process is rooted in deep listening and reflection. It emerges from our strategy and programming phases. Each step includes an updated estimate so you can make the best possible choices based on your goals and budget. Learn about Discovery here.

Step 2: Concept Design

After strategy and programming, we develop your site plan, floor plans, project schedule, and an estimate. You’ll be able to see, discuss, and approve our approach to the building, site planning, and floor planning.

Step 3: Schematic Design

We use peer data, growth targets, and site conditions to help you make projections for 5, 10, and 15 years of operation.

Step 4: Design and Development

See with more detail than ever how your project will look in the real world. Your integrated design team presents photo-real images with recommended finishes, fixtures, furniture, branded environmental points of experience.

Step 5: Construction Documents

Get ready for construction. Whether you choose your own General Contractor or our Design/Build services, we’re here to help bring the whole project together, providing a complete set of construction documents and specifications for the permitting and bidding phases.
