A RELENTLESS COMMITMENT TO THE ART OF INNOVATION

DESIGN & TECHNOLOGY
A|r was among the first in the nation to integrate state of the art Building Information Modeling (BIM) into our practice. We continue to push the edges in pursuit of the best in three dimensional project development and fully integrated construction documentation. We’re advancing the way that design is crafted in the interest of providing more sophisticated alternatives and an enhanced built environment.

DESIGN AND OUR COLLECTIVE FUTURE
High performance buildings are regenerative in nature. They give back more than they take. They transcend mere accommodation and further enhance the human condition. In the face of severe climatic and environmental challenges it is imperative that we make the most optimal choices in crafting our buildings and communities. We submit that A|r is uniquely qualified to deliver the requisite expertise that will make a critical difference moving forward.
