At eaa, we approach each project from the client’s perspective. We maintain a practice where the involvement of the principal on a personal level is key to ensuring a client’s needs are met. Our firm structure and design methods demonstrate our ability to respond creatively and effectively. Our approach to architectural design, interior design and space planning involves the following philosophies and processes:

Coordination of documents and design elements

eaa’s design philosophy focuses on creative design solutions. This effort includes structural considerations, equipment access requirements, life safety issues, building envelope construction, and a myriad of related issues.

Project Management

eaa acts as a direct link to the Owner/Contracting Agencies and their representatives to coordinate and satisfy contractual requirements with the entire project team. Areas of concentration include Project Programming, Design and Documentation, Construction Administration, Schedules, Coordination Activities, and Communications.

Quality Assurance/Control

eaa has maintained a continuing commitment to quality assurance and control with all of our projects.

Cost Control

eaa is actively involved at all levels of project development and understands the importance of budgets and the necessity for a fixed cost structure. We review initial program/budget and then continue to review at strategic project completion milestones.
