“Solving problems presented by the needs of our clients; going beyond pure function and providing designs that enhance, influence and protect their occupants.”
GPW & Associates, LLC participates directly in the early stages of the planning process by working with the client, defining the goals, delineating the direction, and providing guidelines within which the design development can proceed most effectively. Optimum engineering expertise associated with solutions that satisfy architectural / aesthetic considerations, site constraints, budget restrictions, client requirements and energy conservation create the framework for an efficient decision-making process and a reappraisal of priorities throughout the design process.
At GPW & Associates, LLC experience gained from a wide variety of projects adds to the development of each stage of the planning process. There are several avenues of solutions to a problem, but only one can best satisfy the unique needs of each client and project. The goal is to emphasize imaginative and flexible design solutions, which readily adapt to functions and expanding human needs.
