Clearly understanding what principles the client has articulated for their short, medium and long range goals and what they envision the project will do to help accomplish these goals, establishes the projects direction while serving as a reference point throughout the entire process. By clearly listening to and understanding these core principles, and budget constraints, priorities can be focused upon and the right questions presented and answered in a timely manner. This allows us to steer and manage the design direction to final solution that exceeds the clients expectations.

Site Analysis (SA):

Our site analysis and planning service offers an evaluation of solar and wind orientation, local microclimates, drainage patterns, utilities, and existing features to develop optimal building orientation and appropriate landscaping. Environmentally sensitive planning looks beyond the boundary of the project site to evaluate linkages to transportation and infrastructure, ecosystems, wildlife habitats and community culture. We work closely with our clients to create a building that fulfills client expectations, neighbourhood needs, and responds to the natural environment.


Ordinance & Code Repots (OCR):

Our Ordinance and Code Investigations begin with a thorough review of the local zoning ordinance and state architecture building code for rules affecting the site. Typical restrictions include building setbacks from each property line; maximum building height and area; the size, location and number of required parking spaces; occupancy and general land use.



Through our advanced experience in the field of sustainability and Leadership in Energy & Environmental Design (LEED), indesign architecture brings meaningful value to your sustainable commercial building or residential project. We assist our clients in the creation of structures that maximize their positive impact to our climate and our communities while reducing operating expenses. We support all phases of the design and construction process with an integrated approach that includes an alliance of architects, engineers, interior designers, landscape designers and construction specialists.

In today's highly competitive Commercial Real Estate industry, there has never been a greater need for accurate, CAD based, As-Built Floor Plans. Most buildings, offices and retail facilities lose square footage off the books through years of demising and tenant improvements.  Our surveys are used to improve marketing materials, allow the buildings to accurately determine pro rata share, allow landlord’s to charge for every sqft of their building, and take the guesswork out of sqft calculations.”
