An Integrated Process
Conventional design and building processes often fail to recognize that buildings are part of larger, complex systems. As a result, solving for one problem may create other problems elsewhere in the system. In contrast, an integrated process is highly collaborative. This approach requires the whole project team to think of the entire building and all of its systems together, emphasizing connections and improving communication among professionals and stakeholders throughout the life of a project. It breaks down disciplinary boundaries and rejects linear planning and design processes that can lead to inefficient solutions.
We are stewards of the built and natural environment. We respect both equally and are interested in affecting their increase through the work we do as a collective of design professionals. We seek diversity in all forms (markets, interests, people, etc.), which fosters adaptability, resilience, learning, mentoring and, thus, regeneration.
