Once upon a time a School District called us up to say that they needed to build a classroom addition to their K-12 school building.  We scheduled a time to come out and look the situation over…. A time to see what they had in mind but also a time to question whether they really knew what they needed or not.  A time to consider if there was a better way to achieve the same end result.  During our visit something blatant jumped out at us!  There were four complimentary uses occupying valuable space in the classroom corridor.  We saw right away that the school Library, a group Reading Room, a Computer Lab, and Distance Learning function could all be moved out of the class room corridor and combined to form a new “Media Center” for the small town school district, vacating and making available all the classroom space they needed.  Some times the solution to the problem is right in front of us and we can’t see it because we are too close to the circumstance.   Here is what the Superintendent that we worked with had to say once the project was complete!

And we can do the SAME for YOU!

Give us a call if you want us to help you get the best value for your next building project!  Architects are creative, critical thinkers, problem solvers for people who utilize architecture…. “Everyone?”  We can discover a problem, figure out the cause, think up a solution, blueprint a way to make it work and look GREAT too!

As Architects we understand the effect our environment has on us!

The effect our environment has on us.

Some times you may need something that you don’t know about….

something that can have a distinct impact on your company’s image, budget

or even how successful your business is able to become.

Something that only an Architect would notice – because we have a trained eye for cause, effect and minute details…..

If you already know EXACTLY what you want already – you probably don’t NEED us….

We have Special Expertise….  #Justsayin
