Before putting pencil to paper, we listening carefully to our client’s needs. You can’t solve a problem unless you truly understand what it is.
We then explore given conditions to uncover potential efficiencies and synergies that will inform and inspire the design.
With all the right pieces in place, we begin to explore alternative solutions to test the fit of spaces on the site, taking into account views, orientation and circulation. We use intelligent 3D models to verify the schemes for quality of information and accuracy of appearance. Our clients know they can trust our plans, renderings and animations as true depictions of any given scheme.
For further insight, we can also generate Building Energy Models (BEM) to accurately predict how the building will perform in the real world. This enables us to optimize building performance from the early stages of design when key decisions are made that will impact the project down the road.
Finally, we have a quality assurance process in place that ensures that the construction documents are clear and accurate, reducing the chance of errors and increased costs during construction.
Inspired Design that Exceeds Expectation
I and my colleagues found Mr. Kalmantis to be a warm, caring and friendly person to work with. Even during the stressful times, when many of us lost patience and temper, he calmly suggested solutions that turned out to be the best solutions.
The spaces have become our point of pride as a standing invitation to others for an opportunity to educate the public about theatre productions. There is much more student, faculty, and staff traffic. This means more interaction and dialogue about the work. We now have the opportunity to see our productivity and inventory grow. This and other highlights of your design are making this working environment one in which we can create with ease and joy.
Your dedication, experience, understanding, knowledge and working well with people are only a few reasons why I so enjoyed working with you.
About Integral Architecture Inc.
Since 1993 we have worked with one goal in mind – to exceed expectations.
At the end of any project, we want our client to feel that they got a better result than they expected. And they had a better experience along the way than they expected. It’s that simple. Simple but not easy, because every project has challenges, sooner or later – time, budget, design…
To exceed expectations, we deliberately decided to follow two simple strategies:
1. Keep our team small
Challenges require nimbleness and responsiveness. Small teams communicate better and respond faster.
2. Embrace state-of-the-art technologies.
Technology helps us leverage our time and experience so we can focus on innovation and people.
From start to finish, we are focused on the faces of people when they first walk through their new space. The surprise when they enter for the first time and utter those magic words “Whoooa – this is far better than I expected.”
Exceeding expectations. That is our victory.
Nothing is more exciting than creating a new project for your business or personal life, and nothing will affect the success of your project more than the right preparation.
You may be wondering: where do I start?
Defining the scope of your project can be difficult, especially when there are so many design possibilities.
How can you be sure you’re making the right decisions for the long run?
This guide will give you 9 essential keys to consider as you prepare for your design project. We hope you enjoy this guide and look forward to your feedback on the contents.
