Nick believes projects should be approached collaboratively with clients, and works with clients continuously on projects from beginnings of schematic design to finish of construction. His interest is in streamlining the design and construction process by improving the quality and re-examining the methods of construction drawing sets. Nick believes that by eliminating waste and improving the collaborative methods, improved designs and better buildings can be achieved while simultaneously saving time and money.
