Together, these firms are able to handle architectural projects of almost every type and scale.
Operating on a basis of strong teamwork, the 49 Group emphasizes collaboration and the sharing of skills, resources and experience. At the beginning of each project, the affiliated companies establish an interdisciplinary working team of experienced personnel, led by a principal. The team includes project managers in each required discipline, who guide their staff to work in coordination with one another on the project.
This methodology pools the company’s resources and ideas to find the best solution whether it involves design, engineering, construction management, project development, or the building’s utilization and long-term maintenance. Decisions reached collectively in this way often save time, effort and cost.
The 49 Group does all it can to ensure that results are high quality and that the client is satisfied
