High  Performance  Design

STEAMBOAT Q01-04.jpg


Project goals start with cross-discipline collaboration through the complete project. Born from decades of experience, a holistic approach to cost analysis, problem solving, design and constructability is pursued from beginning to end.

Referred to as ‘Integrated Project Delivery’, we simply call it good design practice, and common sense.


We create value from opportunity. We test assumptions, reframe perspectives, study the facts, and create from intuition.

Our creative strategy is to connect art with enterprise, craft with science.

Our creative mission is to transform complex challenges to simple and elegant solutions.



In pursuit of high efficiency, our projects create value when innovation in process and technology are deployed together.

This puts our core design business and innovation strategies on the same mission, to deliver outstanding high performance well-designed buildings at market rate construction cost.


We deliver assurance and certainty by making our clients an essential part of our internal operations. It takes credibility to deliver authentic value all of the time, there are no exceptions.

You can always expect to know our goals, but we also share objectives, strategies and motivations. And, we want you to know us up close, so we’ll share contrarian ideas and opinions too.

For us transparency is not a marketing buzzword, it’s a state of being. We don’t spin we share, we want your trust in a real way.
