Knowledge: Every civic project is unique. Each demands an intimate understanding of how the facility will meet the needs of every user group and benefit the community at large. We pride ourselves on creating designs that reflect exacting permitting and licensing requirements without compromising functionality or aesthetics. Maintaining operations, minimizing downtime, and staged occupancy are critical success factors on most projects. Our team’s knowledge spans a wide array of civic projects, with deep expertise in daycares and fire halls.
Dependability: Dependability is an essential part of our reputation. It’s something we’ve built one project at a time, one interaction at a time. Thinkspace honours its commitments and delivers every time. Our priority is to make sure a project starts right and finishes on-time and budget. We understand that design is not independent of cost considerations. Standardized construction documentation, iterative value engineering and detailed cost estimate give our civic clients confidence that their project will deliver exceptional value.
Approachability: We pride ourselves on being personable, professional, responsive, and receptive to the questions, concerns and suggestions of all stakeholders. Being ‘easy to do business with’ guides our efforts every day. Continuity, providing clients with the same point of contact from design through construction, is equally important. Combined, they are a big reason why so many civic clients continue to work with thinkspace, project after project.
Partnership: We approach the design process by integrating various specialties and resources in a highly collaborative manner, resulting in a team-driven solution that delivers superior project outcomes. Engaging all members of the design team, including the public and specialty sub-consultants, are hallmarks of every thinkgspace civic project.
