Despite the challenges faced by many firms when it comes to inflation costs, particularly for labor and materials, we have demonstrated our commitment to delivering exceptional design services. Our vice president, Erik Higgins, explains that some clients freeze or reduce fees, which can make it difficult for design teams to manage project costs without compromising quality. With longer project times and limited resources, cost recovery can be challenging. But, as Erik suggests, project budgets and schedules should be flexible enough to accommodate economic conditions, allowing design teams to mitigate potential risks and ensure that they do not face unnecessary exposure.
“Design teams are often left with the task of value engineering existing projects to bring costs down while still meeting client expectations.”
Our success in making it to the Top 500 Design Firms list is a testament to our unwavering commitment to excellence and innovation. We are excited to take on the challenges of the future one step at a time!
