Why work with us?

Six reasons to work together:


We are uniquely capable.

We offer the full spectrum of development services in one package, from analysis, planning and design to construction and marketing. We are a small team with an exceptional mix of technical and cultural knowledge and education. We understand the heritage of the past and the need to be at the forefront of the future, technically and culturally.


We are creative and nimble.

We strive to achieve clean and elegant solutions to functional problems, sending an understandable message to the public, and these solutions are reflected in pleasing designs and an award-winning record. We are small and nimble so that our company principals retain creative control but big enough to design and manage large projects on a continent-wide basis.


We are efficient & create value.

From our value-engineered project management system to cost saving designs and construction methods to identifying intrinsic values in placemaking, we have a long record of safeguarding resources and generating economic success.


We are experienced.

Forty years in business through multiple market swings. While we have done it and seen it before the key to our success has been to approach our work with modesty and to always seek better ideas and a better ways of doing things…


We forge long-term relationships.

Some of our client relationships have lasted for more than twenty years. The fact that we have not tired of each other is a testament to transparency and consistency in performance. We do not make many promises, but we seek to be modestly faithful to our assignments, and to avoid surprises to our clients.


We are transparent.

We act in the best interest of the client, performing our role as agents of the client and avoiding conflicts of interest. When we manage a project, we control the design and the construction and we do not assign or subcontract to ourselves the contract for  construction.

  • Perhaps the most important aspect of our collaboration was the delivery of the projects at almost impossible speed and on tight budgets. We are impressed not only with your design, but also with your project management system and ability to be creative in difficult situations.

  • We found the design of the building to be exciting and reflective of our company’s image, the construction process to be smooth and efficient and the resulting building to be a successful realization of our building goals and vision. We are extremely pleased with our collaboration with OOA and Pheidias and would highly recommend their services and their project management process.
