At O’Brien Atkins integrated design is a core part of who we are and how we work. We bring our in-house disciplines together to more efficiently and effectively produce quality work. We approach each client’s unique design needs with our combined strengths in architecture, interiors, mechanical/electrical/plumbing engineering, landscape architecture and planning. Working as a team from the beginning, and utilizing technology tools to integrate these creative disciplines, gives us insight into opportunities others may miss. Most importantly it allows us to deliver more thoughtful and higher value solutions to help enhance our clients’ long-term success.
Making the unseen “seen” is a vital part of the creative process. Building Information Modeling, 3-D printing and other visualization software packages are tools that help us bring innovative designs to life. In addition to visualization, technology integrates all disciplines in the office, helping us manage our projects so that incredible designs are coordinated, delivered on time and on budget.
