PROCESS

THE QUALITY OF THE SPACE REVEALS THE QUALITY OF THE BRAND

For Forecastle, design is a collaborative process that is responsive without being dogmatic, resulting in fresh spaces that reflect the distinct character of each program and client. The goal of every design is clarity of concept, fluidity of space, and strength of detail.

We are a small, close-knit group of designers with a high level of interaction. We like to give everything we work on a “hands-on” approach, whether sketching details or building our own mock-ups. We bring that same attention to our relationship with the client. Our portfolio of work is diverse in flavor but consistent in its creativity and quality of detail. We listen, observe and brainstorm with the client to create fresh approaches to design.

Our Team Plans, designs and builds spaces by trying to capture the spirit of the brand through the materials and through things like the lighting and the technology that’s used. The building itself, in the pure quality of materials, gives you the quality of the brand. In the reception areas, we common use a lot of modern premium materials as well we play with interactive art pieces to capture imagination and communicate some of the value of the brands we work with.

Reliable program and construction management from start to finish.

With full pre-planning, program and construction management services, Forecastle is a reliable, capable, and trustworthy partner to our clients in the successful and safe completion of their projects and programs

Each client’s requirements are unique, so our collaborative and flexible teams approach each program differently.

Forecastle can deliver total design and construction management using our own talented resources, or we can orchestrate the work of outside architects, engineers, and contractors, or we can facilitate a combination of both to best suit the project requirements.

From the pre-construction phase to construction to post-construction, forecastle functions as an extension of our clients, putting their best interests first and handling every aspect of design and construction delivery.
