Successful buildings don’t just have to stand up to aesthetic scrutiny on the drawing board. They need to measure up robustly to the demands of day-to-day physical usage and to the pressures of on-budget performance, not only today but through their lifetime. Making that happen demands the skills that go beyond pretty pictures and paint the total picture for clients. That’s why Schmidt Associates puts as much emphasis on our engineering expertise as we do on our design creativity.
Our Experts Do The Math (So That Our Clients Don’t Have To)
These days, the construction calculation is about a whole lot more than structural integrity, vital though this is. A full range of demands is placed on every project, from the drive for energy efficiency to the need for future proofing. A successful building performs measurably better as well as looking good. To make sure that it checks all the performance boxes, we have an entire team of specialist engineers in-house. And we don’t just call on them after the design decisions are made; they are centrally involved from the start. This way, we can confirm at every stage that our ideas will work in practice as well as on paper.
Neither we nor – more importantly – our clients have to rely on other people to run the numbers. Nor we will need to retrofit engineering answers to design problems that somebody failed to spot early on. Instead, design and function go hand in hand. So when we say that a design is energy efficient we can do so with confidence, based on rigorous analysis rather than a vaguely worded promise. And when we say that a building is future proofed today for the technology demands of tomorrow, we know that our experts have planned in detail to accommodate change with minimized disruption.
