Forward-Thinking, High-Performance Green Architecture
At Epsten Group, we understand that a client’s ultimate goal in working with us is achieving an aesthetically-pleasing, functional, durable and cost-effective building project. Through our green architecture and other architectural design services, we deliver practical, performance-driven designs for clients in a wide range of industries.
Our team of experienced architects uses a collaborative approach to every project, focusing on listening closely to a client’s needs. In a timely and thoughtful manner, we then execute architectural solutions that resolve project challenges beautifully and affordably. Combined with an established process that closely manages schedule and budget, our team has a well-established record of providing our clients with successful, high-performance projects.
No matter the size of the project, Epsten Group has the technical skill and green architecture expertise to make it a success. Our portfolio features a wide array of commercial projects including office and retail buildings, restaurants, event spaces, educational facilities, and parks and recreation facilities. Epsten Group’s specialties include complex renovation and adaptive re-use projects, including multiple projects for clients ranging from DeKalb County School District to Grady Memorial Hospital to Zoo Atlanta.
Our project management philosophy centers on two main focal points that are key to executing successful projects: communication and anticipation. At Epsten Group, we understand the need to clearly communicate schedule, budget and quality expectations to everyone involved in the project, while anticipating project needs and meeting them with agility and efficiency. We take extra care to incorporate client and quality control reviews into our work process to ensure that each project has a complete and well-coordinated set of architectural documents.
This attentiveness to quality also extends to our choice in technology within our office. Epsten Group was an early adopter of Building Information Modeling (BIM) software, which can be used to visualize projects in 3-D for a variety of purposes from design conceptualization to clash detection. We are committed to staying on the forefront of technology to make sure the concepts we sell to our clients are realized fully in built form. This includes not only the design tools we utilize, but the most current building techniques as well.
Finally, we are deeply committed as a firm to green architecture and sustainable design practices that contribute to building a healthier, more prosperous and more just world. No matter the client’s budget or the size of their project, Epsten Group’s team can provide a building that has a smaller ecological footprint that reduces energy and water use, and the operational costs associated with them, as well as healthier environments for happier and more productive building occupants. Even in the most challenging cases, Epsten Group’s knowledge base can often find cost-neutral ways to make better, more sustainable buildings. And, when paired with our other service lines like sustainability consulting, energy modeling, environmental Life Cycle Assessments (LCAs), building commissioning and building envelope commissioning, Epsten Group can help clients realize their high-performance building goals.
