Philosophy

Our passion for design is only surpassed by our passionate teamwork.

When Cox, Kliewer & Company Architecture was established in 1984, the philosophy of teamwork in our industry was nearly non-existent. We knew there had to be a better way. Through our strong teamwork orientation, and a dedication to design quality, we have succeeded in creating and administrating the construction of over 25 million square feet of enclosed space. Working closely with client representatives and construction teams, this philosophy has brought about the unique architecture you will see on the following pages. 

These core beliefs have proven successful in project management and client satisfaction, and remain true with us today. 

Buildings should be more than just monumental shells that look attractive from the road. They are that volume of finished interior spaces which provide the greatest operational capabilities. To ensure a thorough cross-section of ideas and experience, we select a team for each of our commissions based on the requirements of that specific project. Each team includes a project architect, interior designer, technical support staff and the required consultants, all under the direction of the principal-in-charge, who remains involved from start to finish. Whether or not a project includes full interior design services, we approach it in terms of a finished product. That’s the complete service you can expect. 

Today’s fast paced economic markets demand a new process of constructing facilities. Interest rates and financing aside, time continues to be a crucial consideration. We have risen to these challenging issues by expanding the team approach to our clients, which makes the owner, architect, and general contractor equal partners, without a loss of critical checks and balances. This collaboration helps to reduce costs and increase efficiency, and enables each team member to give their best to the project. It is a forum that has proven to be successful as well as beneficial; the invaluable experience that we possess and continue to gain is applied to our conventional client/architect relationships as well.

Philosophy

Our philosophy has remained constant over the past 30 years. We treat each client as if they are our only one, and we tailor our package of services to the needs of that project. While we are continually gaining experience in the general sense, no commission is approached on the basis of what we have done for another client. At Cox, Kliewer and Company, each project is an original, with its own set of requirements. And the service we provide is complete, not just a set of construction documents or a road map of product sources. We are there when our client needs us, throughout every stage of production. We sleep very well at night with this philosophy in mind, and our repeat clientele attests to its continuing success.
