About

BRZ Partnership Architecture Inc. is a creative mid-sized Architectural Firm.

Design Approach


QUALITY
Our approach to delivering a high quality project with the highest level of service is based on our desire to involve the entire team, including the Client Group, our Principals and the engineering consultants in key decisions from the start of design to the completion of a project. We have found that this commitment to service has minimized problems during construction and consistently delivered projects on-time and on-budget. Buildings must be practical as well as sustainable and be designed with the wisdom that only comes from proven, hands-on expertise.

TECHNOLOGY
We work with the latest software including AutoCAD 2011, Revit Architecture Suite, Microsoft Project scheduling software and the full array of Microsoft Office and Adobe products. In addition, we establish an FTP site for each project and have the ability to complete 3D design visualizations using Sketch-Up, V-ray, and Photoshop software.

Sustainable Design Approach


At BRZ we value sustainable design and we work to integrate it into all our projects. Our goal is to design a building or space that provides a comfortable environment for the people using it, has minimal impact on the environment and meets the client’s needs and budget. We base our approach on several key elements of sustainable design: flexibility for the future, energy efficiency through design innovation and building systems, water conservation, environmentally preferred materials, occupant health and well being, re-use and recycling and public awareness and education. We have developed a realistic list of Sustainable Design Strategies to implement these key elements.
