SYKES understands the importance of meeting the needs of our clients and the project budget, while exploring creative solutions to project challenges. We utilize a proven design and management approach that produces creative and efficient structural systems. Our approach includes generating 3-dimensional models that are developed by our Building Information Modeling (BIM) software. The results are well coordinated documents that express the architectural vision of the project. We ensure proper team communication and coordination by developing a clear definition of the project goals and holding design workshops with each discipline. Our approach to quality control includes holding internal design reviews at each phase of the project in order to ensure the most practical solutions are implemented and that the design is well coordinated. Near the completion of the design phase, internal and external quality control reviews are performed in order to assure a high quality deliverable.
