At Integral we seek those urban sites and programs that allow us to develop projects that are fully responsive to their users, with high concept designs that are environmentally sustainable and technologically sophisticated, and importantly all within the financial demands of the marketplace. We seek these sites both through the RFP process and through strategic relationships.
Integral's work has encompassed Mixed-Use Projects, Live/Work Lofts, Arts-Related Projects, plus Commercial, Retail and Residential Projects. We can provide a full range of services including feasibility studies, design, bidding, contractor selection, construction administration, lease-up, sales and property management.
For each project, we are committed to fully utilize best practices, to work hard to fully understand each project constraint, to investigate all potential opportunities, to find sustainable solutions, and work to create the highest quality design possible within the given framework of user need, site, context, and budget.
