COMMERCIAL SERVICES:  FOCUS ON HIGH FUNCTION • HIGH VISUAL IMPACT

Programming:

A commercial and/or public space project must also be defined or “programmed” according to a client’s budget and goals. Many projects are about places where the public encounters a business or organization.  Others may be about work or production spaces. Most are activity based projects focused on both high function and high impact visual presence. Any retail project with a substantial building program will, at some point, become a commercial project as well.  We customize our services accordingly and sometimes recommend:

  • project feasibility studies,
  • client needs and options assessments.

Architecture & Interiors Services:

Full architectural and Interiors services are provided for commercial and commercial public space projects. These can be any size project, ranging from something as small as a will call counter or as large as a ground up mall promenade.   Our focus is anywhere that high performance equals effective function and visual communication.  It is the goal we aim to exceed.  Aesthetics, function, budget, schedule and environmentally responsible building are important considerations. Service can be comprehensive or targeted according to a client’s requirements including:

  • pre – lease/purchase consulting,
  • pre-design,
  • site design,
  • schematic design,
  • lighting Design,
  • MEP,
  • design development,
  • construction documents,
  • permitting,
  • bidding and negotiation,
  • construction administration.

Design Management:

This activity begins very early, and continues through the life of a project and beyond, often without any fee.  The success of a commercial project can be measured by how well the various design, production, and building disciplines are assimilated into carefully planned business goals. High performing commercial environments meet these goals. We offer design management services aimed at exceeding them.
