We can field verify, measure and document any size space in order to provide floor plans for owners, leasing agents and/or potential tenants.

Building configuration, size and coverage, parking and site flows as well as amenities are all crucial factors for successful site planning. Setbacks, right-of-ways, fire department access mixed in with unique zoning requirements, when overlooked, can wreak havoc with a concept you may want to achieve. We have the experience and expertise to clear your project of those obstacles. We will maximize the allowable building area, enabling you to capitalize on the overall value of your site.
Master planning means different things to different clients. It can be a five-building corporate campus, a ten-building incubator industrial park or a multiple phase improvement to your existing facility. Insightful master planning can be a pivotal component to a project’s overall success. Our client list includes many successful industry leaders that we have supported with our master planning services.
More and more of our corporate clientele have been building their own facilities or redeveloping their current facilities to conform to today’s building requirements. In addition, many have also been taking the rent factor out of their pro forma by procuring land and building ownership. To do this effectively, determining what a site can produce both in building square footage and what building design a city will approve are of significant importance. We can provide quick site schematics and feasibility studies to give you the tools to navigate through your decision making process regarding a property or site. By providing you with a study prior to a lease or purchase we can eliminate any assumptions you may have about a site’s potential.
Building design & development are not just a matter of aesthetics. Our ability to integrate budget, City planning expectations, building codes, green building requirements along with functionality all contribute in establishing what constitutes exception design. Our approach has always been to address our client’s needs without sacrificing aesthetic value due to budgetary limitations. Taking existing buildings and redeveloping them to meet today’s design standards is something that we take pride in accomplishing. There is nothing “greener” than the transformation and subsequent reuse of an existing building.
