Profile
Approach

Front has acquired a wealth of experience on diverse project types by working in collaboration with a distinguished clientele of architects and designers, including some of the most creative and visionary architects of our time.  We aim to work seamlessly with the entire project team, approaching the design process with an open mind and a view to productive interdisciplinary collaboration.

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.  Our clients appreciate that Front has the technical depth and practical knowledge to address concerns such as cost efficiency and constructability. 

Using a performance-based analytical approach, we often employ advanced design and analytical tools to comprehensively validate solutions at the early stages of design, to move projects closer towards successful realization.  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.   We also support the multi-disciplinary goals of forward-thinking projects, and are well equipped to address issues of sustainability, environmental performance, adaptive re-use, long-term usability, security, accelerated project schedules, branding and value creation.
