There is an assumption in commercial property development that cost-effectiveness must exclude excellence. At Schmidt Associates, our dedicated Workplace Studio team regularly and successfully challenges this assumption.
Value Friendly Design Means Exceeding Expectations While Staying On Budget
Affordable and on budget do not have to be synonymous with indifferent and anonymous. Vision and ambition for the quality of the final outcome will lift a design out of the everyday into the extraordinary, while staying firmly in the financial ballpark. Designing for the workplace can be regarded either as a pure space utilization task, or as an opportunity to create a signature statement. With excellent project management and total clarity around cost, the second of those options does not need to be more expensive. Yet its advantages will drive return on investment significantly.
For developers, premium physical workplaces create a higher profile and attract both competition for occupancy and healthy rental income. For owners and corporations they provide a rewarding and motivating environment, one that drives productivity and creates an important advantage when the competition for skills and talent is brisk. Our Schmidt Associates Workplace Studio not only believes that a great environment is good business; we have demonstrated our belief through practical delivery over and over. Widely varied designs, for a wide range of workplace clients, combine distinctive corporate presence with the benefits of high levels of energy-efficiency, sympathetic environmental impact, and measurable value for your dollar.
