Our experience in commercial buildings scope of our services varies from a short meeting to answer a specific question to managing complex designs with multiple consultant teams. This is one of our largest and most varied markets. We look forward to the challenges that come with the territory having won over many a skeptic who did not believe that a solution can be found within budget or allocated time. This is also where most of our accessibility and sustainable projects reside.

The green architectural market has now matured and on the regulatory side this means broader options but also demands to find solutions that raise the bar either for cost, sustainability, or spatial experience reasons. We have been the code consultants on several award winning projects in this market.

We negotiate on behalf of the owner to get agreements that compensate for specific code deficiencies while staying true to the building character. These unique solutions draw from our understanding of the intent behind the code regulations and ability to find an alternative that meets or exceeds the level of safety intended by the code. These approaches result in cost savings and extend the life of these facilities safely for many more years.
