Approach

Front’s approach is one of integrated practice. We aim to work seamlessly with the entire project team, enriching the design process through interdisciplinary collaboration and creativity, while striving to fulfill the client’s design intent. In addition to our engagement with the design team, we also draw on long-standing relationships with industry, enabling us to integrate valuable procurement, fabrication and delivery knowledge into the design process.

We promote a performance-based analytical approach, employing advanced design and logistical tools to comprehensively validate solutions at the beginning of design. Front tailors the project work-flow and delivery process to meet each client’s specific needs and often employs 3D and “BIM-enabled” methods to help project teams design and deliver higher quality data-rich projects more efficiently and accurately. We pride ourselves on developing innovative solutions, which bring clarity and legibility to complex and challenging design problems, concerning façade technology, the design process and project delivery. As a technology-enabled integrated practice, we are uniquely qualified to support the multi-disciplinary goals of future projects, including sustainability, environmental performance, sensitive adaptive re-use, long-term usability, life-cycle costs, security, abbreviated project schedules, branding and value creation, while still holding true to overarching design aspirations.
