Our Team


COMMUNICATION IS THE FOUNDATION

OF THE SERVICES WE PROVIDE

 

The Good Foundations, Inc. team works with all parties involved in the project to maximize design goals within the given parameters of the project. These parameters include budget, site conditions, spatial requirements or restrictions, design criteria, or requirements based upon local codes, homeowner’s associations, or architectural review boards.

Our team approachs everything we do with a customer service mindset. Although we are capable and skilled designers, we recognize that good design isn’t the only thing that will set us apart from our competition. The client experience we provide is what truly sets us apart.

We take a proactive approach to projects by anticipating pitfalls or hurdles so that they can be addressed and resolved as early as possible in the project timeline. Surprises at the 11th hour are much more difficult to address and are less likely to have satisfactory outcomes.

We strive to keep our promises and don’t say we can achieve a project goal unless we truly believe it is attainable. If we believe a requested goal is unrealistic, we will tell you and explain why. We will then work together to come up with alternate solutions that are achievable.
