These three priorities serve as the pillars of our practice.
“People” comprises our clients, team members, consultants, construction team, and most certainly the people our clients serve. We believe the client and their stakeholders are essential participants to our people-focused design process.
“Service” has been a core tenet of our firm since winning our first client more than 30 years ago. Service is how we meet the client’s vision while staying within budget and how we rise to the challenge in a way that sets us apart.
Finally, we are obsessed with developing optimal “Solutions” ideally suited to the client’s unique situation and vision. It is our desire to add value to the communities in which we serve, and to strive, always, to meet 100% of our clients’ needs.
The client’s style is our style.
Through a collaborative process, we transform the client’s vision and expectations into reality. VLK’s people-focused design approach ensures that we understand before we create. Every project offers unique challenges. Whether the project is a renovation, interior update or a new facility, we believe the solution should reflect the distinct values of the client and the communities they serve. Regardless of a project’s size and scope, we are always responsive to our clients’ needs. As our project portfolio reflects, no two VLK projects are alike. Anchored by decades of experience applying time-tested architectural approaches, we design a facility shaped by the unique mix of our clients’ needs, priorities, and aspirations.
