Bonsignore Architects, PC’s design solutions are predicated upon our clients’ needs and desires, thus producing as many characteristic differences between projects as exist between clients. However, as much as designs may differ, the philosophy behind each remains focused on the objective to maintain a balance between:
The project’s operational efficiency FUNCTION
The project’s aesthetic completion FORM
The project’s cost and time budgets BOTTOM LINE
While changing times dictate adjusting our methodology, our approach to maintain a balance between these three considerations remains constant. We combine managerial and design skills to moderate a project’s progression. The end result is always the best possible value in form and function for clients’ affordable cost and time.
The importance of considering monetary budgets and time constraints is exceeded only by the control of these parameters. In dealing with the sensitive and simultaneous activities of a project, we have become versed in identifying the tasks for each team member and monitoring the implementation of those tasks during the design and construction process. It is here that we call more upon our skills as effective managers than upon our skills as designers.
Value engineering, flexibility and rapid change without major cost escalation are always in the forefront of our thinking. When decisions are made through a process of balanced evaluations, the resulting project is one which has been truly value-engineered. We have developed a series of computer generated forms and reports to assist us in tracking the hard and soft costs of a project as well as the related schedules.
With more than five decades designing millions of square feet of space for hundreds of clients, Bonsignore Architects, PC. knows the intrinsic value of absolute control, which is the architect’s traditional function and indeed professional responsibility. Despite continued trends to fractionalize this role of chief project coordinator, we have managed to maintain our integrity by exhibiting our experience in synthesizing quality and management.
