Our Approach to Design
We developed our approach to build team connection and create alignment on fundamental concepts. With a clear understanding of project requirements, we dig deeper for granular details then produce the high-quality documentation that allows our fellow contributors to push forward in their domains.
Clear & Realistic Vision
At the beginning of a project, we dig deep to uncover the critical information needed to create clarity and efficiency throughout all subsequent phases. By highlighting hidden complexities, we define a realistic path toward your project vision.
Understanding of Success
Concepts & Budget Reconciliation
As we refine the project scope, we take great care to guide the entire team of contributors in specifying accurate project requirements. What earns us trust every time: our high level of judgement, substantive comments, and commitment to shared project success.
Coordination & Momentum
Just like our systems are integrated into all parts of the building, we see our role as integrators on the team. We facilitate effective collaboration by gathering and distributing key insights across the project team. When we encounter issues, we take the lead on resolving them before it can impact our momentum.
Checks & Balances
Comprehensive & Accurate Documentation
Our partners often comment on our remarkably accurate and comprehensive project documentation. We’ve invested heavily in our 3D modeling capabilities and QC process, because we understand the importance of accounting for every detail. The result: minimal RFIs and optimal constructability.
Integrated Team Reviews
Comprehensive Control Strategies
Consistent communication is what enables a team to move forward throughout the CA phase. As questions or challenges arise, our experts deliver practical solutions with a high level of responsiveness and clarity.
Commitment to Project Success
We only consider a project complete when every single issue has been successfully resolved. It takes trust and tenacity to get there — we have both in our DNA. Even long after construction, many partners rely on us as an expert resource to the project community.

Featured Design Work
Our firm was tasked with providing mechanical and plumbing design and commissioning services for the renovation of an ABSL-3 containment laboratory on the OSU campus. This laboratory is one of three on the campus, and it is currently the only active one.
