Architectural Consulting





In today’s extremely competitive business environment, each and every area of a company’s infrastructure must be continually reviewed and improved.  An often-overlooked area is the physical environment an organization operates in, its workplace.  A thoughtfully designed workplace can increase profitability via environmental improvement in areas such as the physical flow of work and information within a company.  Additionally, companies can benefit from making it possible for ad-hoc or unplanned employee interaction to occur.


Traditional architecture has usually created pleasing, pleasant space to work within.  The function of the space looked at only in summary, (ie: Office, Production) rather than in detail.  It takes a different point of view and experience to look at the workspace and its relation to a company’s operations with an eye to improving both.  There are two types of potential engagements involving architectural consulting services, facilities layout and space planning, and with a little overlap, relocation planning.




In the area of facilities layout and space planning, we will work jointly with our client’s management and all related functional departments to:


·   Investigate and Review – We will compile an inventory of current facilities and review how the space is used.
·   Functional Map – We will create a functional or workflow map showing the physical movement of work, people and information (paperwork).
·   Define Scope of Project – If a client’s facilities require re-configuration, we will develop documents that defines the scope of the changes and the expected benefits to be achieved.
·   Prepare Preliminary Layouts, Plans or Schemas
·   Interface with Registered Architect or Professional Engineer - If necessary, we will work with a local architect or professional engineer to prepare legal documents such as working drawings, and to supervise construction.


For a relocation planning engagement we will accomplish all or some of the above tasks as well as:


·   Prepare Space Requirement Analysis – We will assist in the preparation of an analysis of the size, location and type of space needed.
·   Space Acquisition – We will work with a client’s real estate advisor to identify viable locations.
·   Moving Day Plan – we will work to develop comprehensive plans for the actual move between spaces.
