RBS Design Group’s philosophy is focused on successfully achieving the specific architectural design needs of each client. We do this by meeting with each client to discuss design goals, budgetary requirements, and most importantly the functionality of your new facility or renovation. This customized client-driven approach allows the RBS team to:

Design for your specific program needs

We make a concentrated effort to understand how your facility is going to be used for and design according to its specific function(s). We design with the individuals in mind who will be working in and visiting the facility and attempt to understand the relationships required to create functional facility spaces.

Design for your specific location

Every area has its own unique architectural language and environment. We attempt to interpret these elements into our designs, whether the design is historic restoration, renovation, adaptive reuse, or new construction. Our goal is to design a facility that fits perfectly in your community.

Assess your specific location

We will assist in the investigation of your site for any specific site issues (soils, earthquakes, environmental barriers, topography and existing surroundings). Our intent is to provide you with enough information to make informed decisions throughout the entire process, from concept to completion.

Design for actual budget requirements

We make every effort to design a program that will stay within the allotted budget. This requires years of experience in maintaining a good balance between area, materials, finishes, and planning properly for any possible contingencies. We are also very familiar with phased construction planning, allowing RBS to create a long-term phased approach that will meet your vision for developing a space that will match your construction funding.

Design for clarity/function

We aim to create a design that will work for your specific situation(s).  We know the importance of understanding daily workflow needs, the relationship of required spaces, and having involved user input in creating our design solutions. We strive to create spaces that improve the overall work environment and staff productivity.

Design for regular maintenance

We design facilities that can be easily maintained. Our preferred mechanical systems are simple in function and will allow for easy and regular maintenance.
