A Happy Story

Who We Are

Our Philosophy

At Consilium Design we believe compelling, sustainable design solutions must be contextual, adaptable, and temporal in nature. Our designs are meant to be lived in, not simply looked at. The ideal of place is more than a predetermined pattern of streets and trails or the skin of buildings. It emanates from the patterns of life and how the places we create influence the experiences and memories of people who live in them.

Our mission is to make great places happen.

Relationships

We offer the simplest, most uncomplicated, relationships with our principals in the industry so that you can get your concerns taken care of quickly & expertly…with minimum cost – time, energy, money and lost opportunity.

We have a reputation for working well with all stakeholders of your team. We listen.

Responsiveness

We move with an almost unheard of urgency…we move faster than the speed of business, we move at the speed of developers. “Why not do it now?” is our mantra.

We are detailed, accurate and timely with the information we share with members of the project team so that they have the time and information to excel.

Value

Our Design Philosophy is Doing Simple Well.

  • Your plans get approved faster
  • Your plans age well so you build your reputation and open up future possibilities.
  • Your plans will sell with greater velocity so you reach your absorption goals, faster.
  • We provide the most value for your land planning and design dollar. We spend your money as if it were our own — we respect it.

Values

RESPECT

We respect people and the environment. First impressions are like our planet, we only get one. That’s why we labor in the details that truly matter to our clients and the various stakeholders in the projects we work on, including ourselves and our team members.

This respect manifests itself in simplicity in our relationships, in our responsiveness to our clients and in the value we create in our designs.

KNOWLEDGE

We encourage a love for and the practice of lifelong learning. Never be satisfied by what you know now.

SPIRIT

We value creativity, passion, enthusiasm, and the courage to explore new ideas and to accept the ideas of others. 

ACCOUNTABILITY

We welcome the opportunity to be held accountable for our past actions, to be responsible in the present and to be dependable and reliable in the future.

Our Vision

Making Great Places HAPPEN. What’s a great place? A great place is more than a predetermined pattern of streets and trails or the skin of buildings. It emanates from the patterns of life and how the places we create influence the experiences and memories of the people that live in them.
