Design Philosophy

Each project is carefully designed to specific client’s needs, program, technical requirements and budget. Every assignment presents the opportunity to develop a uniquely appropriate design solution. Our primary design objective is to identify and resolve the specific issues presented by each assignment.

Particular emphasis is placed on defining not only project scope and intent, but also budget ad schedule at the inception of the design process. Attention to all levels of detail and close communication continue through the duration of the project to insure the best possible match of client needs, design intent and cost effectiveness.

Engineous Group maintains a flexible project oriented management structure, which can respond to individual projects of any size and complexity. The client is given the highest degree of attention and design service for each project. Experienced staff, innovative design and advanced CAD technology enables the firm to respond to concurrent projects with proficiency.
