Design & Development
Excellent design is our top priority, and it could not be possible without technical understanding. We work as engineers with designer sympathies, ensuring a perfect unison between the design and its technical performance. Our experience and expertise is vast and diverse. We’ve worked on projects as large as towers and small as toilet rooms.

Structures have the potential to answer even the most improbable questions with sensitivity. A great structure remains elegant and efficient when faced with balancing the requirements of the ground condition, the installation constraints, cost, and design intent. We have experience working on a diverse portfolio of projects: minute and massive.

The building envelope is an art and a science. Skins have the potential for elegance, livelihood, and to become icons for their inhabitants and neighborhoods. But they shouldn’t leak. We take pride in a technical but design-oriented approach; to achieve both is our top priority. We produce advanced structural analysis and shop drawings together to seamlessly fuse design and performance.
