The First Step is Discovery
Let’s Figure It Out Together

Most importantly, we want to know the reason you are considering renovating your office. Are you trying to gain new customers, hire top talent, or improve company morale? All this information is then taken into account as we develop your design.
It’s this holistic approach to your project during the earliest stage that enables us to provide you with detailed insights into feasibility, project costs, zoning, code requirements and design concepts. Right from the start we ensure that we have the right foundation in place to support the project’s future decisions. Finally, we’ll conduct a photo survey to photograph your current office environment so its fully documented.
