We work with each client in a collaborative manner to explore the possibilities for their projects. With private clients this is very straightforward; we take your goals and ideas combined with creative and innovative solutions from the SSA team to create a unique vision for your project. With public and corporate clients this process often requires workshops with stakeholders, citizens, corporate leaders or shareholders to create a vision that meets the needs and goals of the group. Whether working in a public outreach setting or in a private client meeting, our goal is to listen and gain an understanding of all viewpoints, issues, opportunities and constraints before developing any opinions or preconceived notions of how the project should come together. By taking this approach, we are able to help the group in developing consensus on how to move forward. This vision becomes the template that allows for development of a detailed program that guides all of the design work that is to come.
