Balancing the often competing interests and needs of each requires broad experience and deep expertise. For each assignment, Gaskins + LeCraw leadership assembles a team capable of creating unique, yet practical, solutions that address issues and opportunities likely to be encountered during the entire planning, design and construction process.
Our planning approach is built upon developing a thorough understanding of the physical, political and cultural systems and context for each assignment. We do this through structured outreach, critical analysis, iterative communication, and design thinking. To quickly explore ideas, our staff utilize leading edge design software to distill and prioritize often competing information in real time. Technical knowledge, combined with our broad experience managing teams, creates efficiency at each phase of a project and results in more affordable solutions.
Straightforward and direct, our process is organized around six phases: Discover, Analyze, Create, Refine, Document, and Execute. Each phase builds upon the previous with success enabled by robust client and stakeholder engagement, as needed, to ensure critical buy-in and timely approvals.
