Involvement in Planning

Our process is unique and seeks first to understand you and your community. Your needs are unique, and the plans and solutions we develop for you will be responsive to your objectives -- never replications of past projects intended for solving other clients’ challenges. Your vision and values will be reflected in the final solutions through our collaborative design and construction process. Our participatory planning process gains consensus from your staff and users on facility needs, develops unique solutions that address those needs and evaluates how each option rates when judged by the initial criteria. Creating ownership can only be successful if the participants believe their voices are being heard. Our team has the experience necessary to lead a group to consensus through careful listening, asking the right questions and maintaining focus on your long-term vision.

“I’ve especially appreciated Wold's willingness and ability to bring in needed expertise to address a wide gamut of challenges. Any question or problem that has come up has been quickly responded to in a knowledgeable and forthright way."

— Warren W. Sohaber, Ramsey County Commissioner, District 6

Maximizing Your Efficiency

For most government facilities, the goal is to have environments that support its staff’s ability to efficiently deliver services to the citizens of the community. To accomplish this task, our team believes it is crucial to focus on the persons who will utilize this space. Knowing that the staff in your facilities are a priority asset, we want to make sure we can maximize their work through our designs. By including staff in the planning process early on, we can establish what designs can maximize your potential in an economically feasible way.
