NORR offers a full-service architectural practice. Our experience in 14 market sectors has resulted in sustainable architecture and inspired design in the built environment for more than 80 years. Every project starts with a clear vision. We lead the lifecycle of a project from feasibility study and conceptual design to facility programming, construction drawings and development. Formal project management protocols are used to manage budgets and timelines.
We design buildings inside and out. We create spaces that support activities within them and that provide the right experiential goal. We also consider the rate of change in technology, material and society to achieve the vision of the possible business direction over the life of the space. Whether it’s a new building or renovation of an existing space, we provide a full scope of interior design services across 14 market sectors.
We love complex engineering challenges. We’ve earned a reputation for proven structural engineering solutions that reflect and enhance architectural design goals on every project. Our Structural Engineering team is an integral partner to ensure the design detail is achieved in the selection of structural systems and materials. We take a team approach with architects, constructors, clients and others to implement successful engineering design.
Mechanical and Electrical Engineering
We design mechanical and electrical building systems. Our forte is high-performance solutions that give full consideration to a building’s operating and maintenance cost – and its environmental footprint. From energy management and fire protection systems to power distribution and telecommunications, our team manages all aspects of mechanical and electrical engineering using sustainability best practices for long-term results.
Master Planning and Urban Design
NORR has a strong vision on master planning and urban design. We believe planning our cities and communities is a creative design process that addresses how people use spaces, respond to the environment and provide a framework for sustainable growth. Our strength is to acquire a high degree of confidence and probability at each stage of regulatory, site plan and building permit approval to forecast timing and outcome and minimize risk.
We connect people to land through innovative landscape design. NORR offers a comprehensive range of landscape and urban design services for projects ranging from urban developments to environmental master plans and ecological landscape planning. Our team creates meaningful outdoor experiences and destinations that are natural extensions of architecture and planning. We put our mark of excellence on the form and function of land.
