At SDG, we never forget that our designs are achieved for our clients, not for ourselves. So we make paying close attention to the needs and goals of each client, the driver of our methodology and design approach. Working closely with each client, we first develop or refine a detailed Program of Requirements, before any design work is begun. We understand that the final space will be only as good as the requirements are accurately and completely established at the outset. The resulting Program then becomes our “road map,” a constant reference as the design of the project is conceived and developed, to insure that we remain on target throughout the process.
Creativity has a much deeper meaning than simply design aesthetics. Creativity for us is a fundamental search for the enhancement of quality in our built environments. We seek to craft imaginative and unique forms, expressive of the particular uses and activities within. We seek environments for our clients, which serve a purpose and function efficiently. We aim to design spaces, which lift the sprits and attitudes of their users, therefore enhancing productivity.
Evolution in new materials, construction systems and technology is a constant of today’s advancing world. SDG constantly researches and evaluates the latest developments that will be beneficial to our clients, which enrich the quality and character of our environments.
This approach can also lead to reducing energy consumption, and meeting “green” or “sustainable” design goals.
