BOA-GS is distinguished from others through its commitment to personalized service and responsiveness. All of our work is generated in collaboration with the client from initial design sessions to construction administration.
Deadlines, budgets, and quality control are of primary concern to the client as well as the architect, and each project affords BOA-GS the opportunity to improve the synthesis of function, space, and aesthetics. Value engineering and life cycle cost analysis is embraced as a means of providing the best solution for a project within tight budget constraints. Understanding that all facilities must balance individuality and function, BOA-GS strives to provide innovative and specialized solutions to the design issues facing the clients and user groups, architects and engineers. We pride ourselves on being problem solvers, helping to resolve the architectural problems unique to each project.
The Principals and staff at BOA-GS take a responsive and active part in every project designed. BOA-GS is small enough to offer a direct, personalized service to our clients yet large enough to undertake projects of any size. A Principal and Project Manager participate in each phase of every BOA-GS project, constantly contributing their own special skills, special talents and experience. Consistent with our philosophy of personalized service, the Principals are directly responsible for all phases of the project.
