More than 95% of our project base is transportation design. Our experience encompasses intercity and regional rail, subway, and light-rail stations; BRT and bus/intermodal facilities; maintenance shops and welfare facilities; and yard infrastructure, substations, signal and yard towers, and control/operations centers for all transportation modes. Our work covers every aspect of facility planning, design, renovation, expansion, and restoration; from stand-alone station / shop planning and design to nuts-and-bolts building enclosure and state-of-good-repair investigation and remediation efforts. We see each project as an opportunity to help our clients achieve their defined goals. We structure our design and execution processes around this premise.

Sustainability — We view sustainable design as a way of thinking. Sustainability is an integral part to every project we undertake. Our design staff uses their experience with multiple certifications (LEED, ParkSmart, Envision, and Green Globes) to determine which strategies will benefit our clients and their projects most. Our integrated facility design processes aim to reveal potential approaches that improve the health and wellness of occupants and the lifespan of facilities. Ultimately, the sustainable strategies we identify and implement are centered around our clients and the users.
Technology — Our team leverages current and advanced technologies to enhance project delivery. We utilize BIM (building information modeling) on all phases of our projects, unless a client requests a different process. In addition to 2D drafting, 3D modeling, clash detection, and scheduling - our own proprietary software for management tracking with embedded flexibility tailors reporting to our clients' needs. All these tools are essential to our success, facilitating streamlined collaboration, communication, and information sharing with our clients and consultants.
