At our studio, multiple areas are sought so design, planning and scholarly research go hand in hand. As a matter of fact, a very important difference in BEAD performing the service from other design firms is the efforts we put in complimenting design tasks with a thorough research effort whether the latter goes into up-to-date design theories, building materials or new construction technologies.
