Our Approach

GMA’s collaborative approach begins in a project’s earliest stages. Our staff remains dedicated throughout the process, working with the contractor and trades to ensure the facility is built to the client’s exact specifications, on time and on budget.

Branding / Interior Design

To make sure your ideas are brought to fruition, we dedicate ourselves to learning the ins and outs of your business and how it operates. That’s why we work directly with you during every step of the design process, from space planning to finish boards to renderings. Maintaining such a close relationship with you and your brand ensures that the project we deliver is completely reflective of the vision you have for your business.

Design Development

In the design development phase, we work hand-in-hand with clients to determine the best architectural expression of their new space. We perform vision sessions to work through critical design elements, from material selection, to space layouts, to finishes and fixtures. Our collaborative partnership with the contractor allows for on budget pricing so we can identify budget issues early on, not after the drawings are completed – saving you time and money.

Schematic Design

Before beginning schematic design, we educate ourselves in each client’s business. This dedication to understanding the client’s goals for their facility impacts the architectural choices as we move on to designing the exterior to fit into the surrounding environment and laying out the interior spaces. Starting with high level “bubble diagrams,” we ensure that the correct adjacencies are determined for the efficiency of each space.


Our staff is expertly trained in the best design/build practices to accelerate delivery without sacrificing quality. Decades of experience have resulted in familiarity with requirements for municipalities around the country - allowing for accurate permitting input and schedule management. We are ready to assist with any issues that may arise throughout the construction process. We work with clients and contractors every step of the way to ensure a successful project.
