WHAT WE DO

As a firm we put great emphasis on design quality - the strength of the idea. 

 

A COMPLETE PACKAGE: We offer comprehensive architectural services so you do not have to enlist numerous consultants and services. We hire consultants to collaborate with us when needed including suryeyors, structural, mechanical, and electrical engineers and provide you a complete package of programming, design, conctruction documents, bid assistance and constructon administration. 

 

VISUAL AIDS: We also are able to provide renderings, sketches, shematic 3D models for you to be able to visualize the design in a vivid and engaging manner. This helps us include you in the design process and deliver a final product that you absolutely love.

 

CREATIVE WITHIN CONSTRAINTS: We love design and always love a challenge, but we put our client's needs and vision first. Our goal is to meet all of the client's wishlist without losing sight of the budget or scope.We are able to do this by having multiple alternatives for the client to consider-in space planning as well as material and services to be used.

 

SPECIALIZED BUILDING TYPES: We have worked on multiple building types and have a great track record of exceeding the expectations and requirements of the client. We have successfully delivered many complex building types, such as medical facilities, athletic facilities, expo centers, adaptive reuse, etc. after familiarizing ourselves of their technical requirements and feel confident to take on any project type-big or small.

 

We persevere on every project to achieve complete client satisfaction before finalizing a design and proceeding to construction phase.

 

CONSTRUCTION SERVICES: We will assist you with selecting the right kind of project delivery method-bid, construction management etc. and work with you during the entire process to ensure all the choices being made are to your benefit and for a successful completion on the project. We will help you interview prospective contractors, as well as monitor the entire construction process. We field questions from contractors, acting as the liason between you and the contractor. 

 

POST CONSTRUCTION EVALUATION: We keep in touch with all our clients and get their feedback maintaining good working relationships with them. We are fortunate and proud to say that much of our work is from return clients who have had a good experience with us.

ARCHITECTURE AND PLANNING

 
 

FROM FOUNDATION TO FURNITURE: We believe all projects should be integrated without drawing boundaries between the interior and exterior. As part of our complete design package, we are able to provide you with trained interior design services right down to picking out finishes as well as furniture so your project is realized to the very last detail.

 

INTERIOR DESIGN PROJECTS: We also provide interior design services by themselves where required--be it in an existing space, an interior remodel or just refurnishing. We can assist you with laying out your new space so it is functional and efficient and meet codes while meeting your needs. Our licensed interior designer can help you with selecting materials and finishes, and also creating renderings and finish boards so you can visualize your space. We maintain a materials library right in our office to help you look at physical samples of the finishes under consideration. We are always meeting with new manufacturers and product representatives to keep up to date with all that the industry has to offer so we can apply it to the suitable project.

 

FURNITURE WITH DESIGNER DISCOUNT PRICING: We can not only help you select furniture for your space, whether it is for residential or commercial use, but also pass on the designer discount that is available to us, onto you, so you don't have to pay retail prices. On average we are able to save you 20%-40% off of retail prices.

 

For commercial projects, we have a large selection of commercial grade furniture manufacturers that we work with, who can provide you durable and functional yet asthetically pleasing furniture that will compliment your space.

Being in Enid, we have had the opportunity to work on several projects under the restoration/rehabilitation/adaptive reuse category. 

 

In most cases we work with the historic aspects of the building to enhance the design and add to the character. In most cases, we keep our intervention to a minimum, by consolidating the existing, and selectively peeling off haphazard additions to reveal the original elements of a building. We use our design to subtly blend around the historic fabric, without mimicking, and let all the historic elements take centerstage. We have successfully blended contemporary clean lines with ornate historic buildings to provide a classic timeless feel to a space. We have also used unconventional materials like roof decks to create floating walls between spaces, so they would have minimal impact on the existing floor and ceiling.

 

While we do not specialize exclusively on preservation, our designs have been nominated for and won recognition from the National Trust of Historic Preservation in the form of State Main Street Awards, severak years in a row.
