NORR is focused on low carbon high performance buildings, embracing a holistic design approach driven by our architects, interior designers and engineers. Our project experience extends across the entire spectrum of services and project types, from ground up buildings and repositionings, to coworking spaces and workplace strategies. We uphold a client-centric methodology on every project to deliver on business objectives and long-term value and efficiencies.
Designing to Meet Business Objectives
Our purpose is to create impactful, creative and sustainable projects to respond to our client’s specific sustainability targets and business objectives. We design for the future by creating office structures and interiors that are resilient and support healthy environments for the workforce. This enables higher employee productivity and lower operating costs. We do this through research and selection of mechanical, electrical, life safety, elevator and communications systems, sustainable materials, and programs for every design project. The result is measurable performance.
Creating for Long-Term Value and Efficiencies
We also know that it is critical that office buildings, workspaces and systems be designed for flexibility, to accommodate the changing demands of tenants, and their workforce, over time. Expectations of a flexible work environment and the rapid advance in technology are major factors in design. Building owners, investors and employers need to offer a gamut of wired flexible floor plates, collaborative and hoteling workspaces and employee amenities to remain competitive for tenants and skilled talent respectively. At NORR, we design for today, and tomorrow, to ensure our clients realize long-term value.
Sustainable building practices are also relevant when considering resiliency in the designs of building envelopes and reducing the environmental footprint, resulting in cost and energy savings. We partner with our clients to realize efficiencies for brownfield projects to renovations, and retrofits to adaptive reuse. In every scope, we embrace the vital role that design plays in our lives and communities.
