Functional & Creative Balance
Our dynamic design team develop creative design solutions in balance with the surrounding environment. Our designs are based on a clear understanding of the unique project and site requirements of our Clients. We consider both the current and future needs of users and as a result we frequently create project staging plans to guide the development of a project over time.
FORM is positively shaping environments by incorporating sustainable design principles into all of our projects. Our LEED® accredited professionals choose design methods and building products that create a higher level of performance, reduce energy consumption and effectively decrease the carbon footprint of the building.
We develop and manage projects from the preliminary functional programming stage through design development, construction document production, construction services procurement, construction contract administration, and warranty. Our construction drawings and specifications are technically rigorous and we work closely with contractors to monitor progress and quality. This attention to detail ensures that the final product meets the needs of our Client and fulfills the initial design vision.
FORM uses an integrated design strategy to produce intelligent and responsive design solutions. Our projects are successful because communication is key to our collaborative approach and allows us to engage all project team members in the challenge of establishing and achieving project milestones, while focusing on excellence in design.
We are experienced leaders of wide ranging design teams of engineering consultants and understand how to bring the right consultants on board for each stage of the project, from initial site assessments through design, construction, and commissioning.
We communicate clear direction to consultants regarding the core values required to meet the stated design parameters and scope of work required to meet the project schedule. We systematically review all work for errors, for completeness, and for incorporation of Client requirements. We review and obtain feedback from Clients and user groups at regular intervals to ensure clear and complete communication.
