Places With Soul

This summer, we intentionally set aside time to reflect on our values. But if there’s one thing we learned, it’s that living out our values is not, and should not be, a one-time thing — it should be embedded into our culture and at the forefront of all we say and do.

Women in Business with Julie Towner

Over the next few months, we’ll share thoughts and stories from some of our own female team members as we explore what it’s like to be a woman thriving in the construction industry.

What Are Beautiful Outcomes?

To our clients — and sometimes even ourselves — “Beautiful Outcomes” might conjure up images of the final project. But they are so much more than that. They are the result of smart, safe, and collaborative efforts. Whether you’re helping a trade contractor or client, a tenant or internal team member, we believe that beautiful outcomes happen every day.

Built-In Value

Providing built-in value means that we proactively anticipate needs before they’re needed, and problems before they’re a problem. It means leveraging lessons learned into new solutions. It’s about stepping out of our comfort zones to tackle new problems and create new possibilities — to make things better, safer, and more sustainable. This month, we asked our team to think of ways they can create built-in value, and then act on them.
