Design & Development

PEELING AWAY THE LAYERS OF A PROJECT

Carl Sandburg wrote, “life is like an onion: you peel it off one layer at a time, and sometimes you weep.” Except for the weeping, we feel the same way about our design and development process. Rather than give pre-packaged solutions, when we embark on a project we peel away the layers to fully understand the goals, budget, barriers, benefits, and outcome. We balance these considerations with the individual needs of the client, from family schedules to design-by-committee requirements. Whether working with an architect or providing the design plan ourselves, the Teevan team is able to apply the principles of building science to achieve the desired result: a project that enhances the function, look, and durability of our clients’ structures.

BETTER DESIGN AND DEVELOPMENT THROUGH
BUILDING SCIENCE

Design and development is a widely used, increasingly vague term in our industry, but the definition remains simple for us. At Teevan, we take an idea or need and turn it into a fully realized, successful project. Critical thinking, craftsmen skill, and knowledge of building science help us achieve that.

Building science refers to understanding building materials and building envelope systems, and how these systems interconnect to comprise a stronger, more durable and efficient structure. We use this methodology on all our projects and it sets us apart. The project could be as simple as an out-swing patio door that prevents future water leaks, or something as complex as the restoration of a cathedral interior. Regardless of project scope, every Teevan client is best served by our comprehensive approach to design and development, one in which your needs and expectations are expertly attended by a team that understands the complexity and potential of building science.
