Integrated design/construction

aka lab simulates usage scenarios and identifies construction bottlenecks before actual construction begins utilizing informed discussions with customers, final users, suppliers and subcontractors streamlining elements of the project management. There is small to large scale sensibility and a cross disciplinary approach. Our work neither compromises construction efficacy for design nor aesthetics for lack of technical communication. It will achieve both.
