We are experts in post secondary project types. We have history and knowledge that we leverage for our post secondary clients. Below is a brief overview of what thinksapce offers to our post secondary clients.
Knowledge: At thinkspace, we embrace an inquiry-based approach to design. We focus on you, our client, paying attention to your journey every step of the way. The design experience must be clear, visionary, and deliver a space that meets your needs.
Expertise: Our expertise is deep – from labs, student and active learning spaces, casual student collaboration, one stop student services, administration and governance space, faculty offices, research spaces, health sciences facilities and trades facilities. Our work includes new builds, complex renovations, business cases, programming, utilization analytics, space management protocol and campus planning. Mass timber, passive house, net-zero, complex sites, and projects with difficult budgets and schedules round out our profound expertise.
Process: The client takes ‘centre stage’ in our design process. Our integrated design team will embrace your needs and vision. At every step of the journey, from significant milestones and approvals to budget reviews, we maintain continuity with your definition of project success.
People: Curiosity, collaboration, commitment, and accountability permeate our culture. Transparency and honesty are evident in our every action. With a team filled with post-secondary experts, we look for every opportunity to leverage our knowledge to benefit every project and client. LEED accredited professionals, passive house experts, planners, programmers, building code experts, technologists, and architects comprise our post-secondary practice.
Technology: Our approach to technology is straightforward, tactile and hands-on. We deploy technology to help clients make critical decision decisions, build consensus and maintain a clear and transparent process. REVIT, building information modelling and three-dimensional software are used to seamlessly communicate design information to clients, users, and construction professionals.
