Competent Architects Make Plans. Great Architecture Creates Environments.
Schmidt Associates’ architects don’t set out just to make plans. They strive to understand the aspirations of clients and then to deliver against those aspirations, exceeding expectations along the way.
Our Architectural Approach Has Three Foundations
While it is always fluid, client responsive, and open to innovation, there are just a small number of fixed points in our approach. Schmidt Associates is guided by a three stage philosophy: better foresight, better insight and better on-site. This simple sequence informs every phase of our work, and ensures excellence in every aspect of design, from initial concept to a fully realized structure.
With better foresight, Schmidt Associates will be with you from the very beginning to make sure the project is optimized from inception. Better insight means that we leverage our experience and knowledge and put it to work for you, making sure every square foot is put to good use – your use. Finally, being better on-site will provide you with efficient and dedicated project management.
A Vision For Life. And a Vision Brought To Life.
To Schmidt Associates, architecture is more than just designing buildings, it is the process of bringing your vision to life. We are committed to understanding your mission and goals and realizing them to be the best they can be. This is our mission. It is enabled by every aspect of our internal approach. Our foresight recognizes that often the key obstacles to construction are not physical but rooted in the social and economic context of a building. So being the architects of consensus at the outset is a key role for us. Our insight is built on deep and broad understanding of what our clients and their key stakeholders really want and need – so they get what they aspire to as opposed to what we think they should have. Our being better-on site is a highly practical reflection of what we know clients need: a partner with the integrity to deliver on time, to standard and on budget.
Better foresight and insight and being better on-site. It’s how we identify your vision and bring it to life through architecture.
“If you are looking for a reliable, creative, and cost effective architect to help with construction projects, I give Schmidt Associates my most sincere endorsement. They live up to their reputation by always delivering top-notch work.”
