DESIGN QUALITY   

Design quality, cost effectiveness, and environmental sensitivity are integral to all UK Architects' projects. Together, the architectural team provides clear and innovative solutions for conventional projects, as well as more complicated assignments such as:

Energy and environmental conservation

Complex design problems

Difficult building sites

Extraordinary budget and time constraints

Complicated integration of new construction with existing buildings

UK Architects' design process seeks a well-balanced response to the pertinent realities of each situation and project. Through close communication with the client, we strive to develop a complete understanding of the client's needs and goals, and we tailor services appropriately. Providing flexible services allows UK Architects to be a cost-effective component to any design and construction process.

Balancing creativity and exemplary service, UK Architects can make a difference in how people live and families interact, how communities are characterized and serve their members, and how the environment is respected and protected for future generations.  The value we create is derived through our knowledge and passion for what we do.

UK Architects' concern for determining the right solution and the best design is neither superficial nor limited to aesthetics.

WHAT OUR CLIENTS HAVE SAID ABOUT US

You guys are great. This space is fabulous!

I spent the last hour wandering the Campus Center inside and out, the “new” dining area, etc during our first full all school informal meal.

I can’t tell you how well this space functions – especially given all the constraints we were working with for circulation in and out of the dining hall, parking, etc.

The decks and outdoor patios are terrific and the integrity of all the spaces – front – back – and indoor –tremendous!

The connections for day/boarding, parent drop off / pick up, athletic / academic / arts intersection informal and formal – genius!

In essence, this space is fantastic for the school and your design captured the vision and expectations for this space better than I ever could have imagined.

From the beginning of our process you have taken an integrated approach to our design. Everyone has been involved in a collaborative way in putting together a project that meets our objectives. The team has been sensitive to our desires for a”green” building.

Everyone has been aware of the importance of the Lyme Road to the community. Our store site is a prominent location and your design dramatically recognizes that fact. I believe our building will provide the kind of community oriented gathering place the town, the neighbors and the COOP envision. It will truly b the gateway the site demands and the community wants.

Most importantly, the UK team has been great to work with to produce a market that I believe will work for our consumer members. You have noted all the data we have provided and listened to our ideas on how the store should work and have come up with an exciting design the community should love. I really think this store will transform that area of Hanover.
