What We Offer

Career Building

Our cross-disciplinary project teams bring together people with different backgrounds, perspectives, and strengths who contribute to all aspects of the design process, from strategy and master planning to architecture and interior design. We provide career-building opportunities for staff members to continually expand their experience, knowledge, and expertise.


Our PEople mentor program—with nearly 70-percent participation across the firm—pairs employees at all career stages to further their personal and professional development. The program supports our remarkable staff members as they seek greater work-life integration, deeper design knowledge, and stronger networks and professional pathways.

Leadership + Guidance

Across all practice areas, team members present project work for constructive feedback, which both promotes collaboration and critical thinking and helps us better serve those who inhabit the spaces we design. Our Design Leadership Group connects designers across studios and disciplines to promote dialogue and exchange information and knowledge to improve access to the best tools and resources.

An Innovative Approach

We leverage data, research, and technology to inform the design of our high-performance environments. To support these efforts, our firm’s internal Data Unit group accelerates our adoption of computational design technologies, so we can provide our designers with training in the latest building and design tools.


We believe good design is sustainable design. This mantra runs deep in our culture. Every team member works to ensure that sustainability and resiliency are built into every project. Simply put, our firm is committed to designing a better future by enhancing the health and well-being of people, communities, and the planet.

Design Awards

Our Annual Excellence Portfolio, an in-house design awards program and book series, honors our staff’s creative energies. Independently juried by professional peers each year, the program is a catalyst for lively design discussions about works in progress and their high-performance strategies. The book series is a growing archive of the work we do together.


Our scholarship program offers opportunities for our staff to advance their professional development, contribute to the firm’s knowledge base, and benefit the profession at large. The program extends resources to attend conferences, take courses and seminars, conduct applied and theoretical investigations, and travel for self-directed studies.

Immersive Internships

We foster succeeding generations of thoughtful designers through year-round internship opportunities that immerse students in the design process across all practice areas. Through lectures, building tours, and studio activities, our program goes far beyond the typical intern experience.

Community Building

Careers 11

From cultural-heritage events and annual holiday gatherings to community outreach and creative exchanges, we are continually connecting with each other and supporting our communities. Nationwide, our studios are particularly involved in CANstruction, the American Heart Association, and the Walk to End Alzheimer’s. Locally, studios form their own active communities; they volunteer with after-school design programs, field sports teams, organize reading groups, host movie lunches, and rally around causes near and dear to colleagues’ hearts. Studios also host their own events that benefit local charities, celebrate their diverse cultural traditions, and explore studio-designed projects.
