The Way We Work

The Way We Work

Architecture, engineering, planning and other defined scopes of design services are all too often compartmentalized into the limited range of each professional discipline. Everyone at some point in our lives will experience the result of the “Silo Effect” in the unfortunate outcome of a decision made without all of the factors revealed.

At Quartek we approach a project with an interest in offering a more holistic view to design challenges. Project designs are often vetted in a group setting, to encourage problem solving from many individuals and areas of expertise. Our people are architects, engineers, planners and designers who work together in an environment that promotes communication, innovation and creative acts of serendipity. This approach can involve the input of more design participants during the conceptual and formative phases of a project’s development. Collaboration often leads to logical, streamlined solutions producing ideas that can save time and reduce costs to the overall project budget. This same approach offers a second benefit to our customers by creating attractive buildings, spaces or objects that possess a level of elegance, harmony and design simplicity, because they are simply well thought out.
