Supporting Those Who Keep Austin Weird
For the edgy, eclectic and entrepreneurial, Harvey | Harvey-Cleary is ready to build your building better. Austin is one of the fastest growing cities in the U.S. thanks to the booming economy and strong tech start-up environment. Like the creative minds behind these successful ventures, we believe anything is possible. We don’t quit. We constantly strive to improve. We help clients small and large create their optimal places to live, work and play.
Since opening in 2001, our Austin office has grown alongside this vibrant city. The attribute local staff use to describe themselves is grit. It’s the perseverance to keep up with the constantly changing needs of our clients. It’s also a commitment to understanding the trends shaping the industries our clients serve. It’s a mindset to think differently and do whatever it takes to achieve the stated goals. In a local climate where innovation reigns, Harvey looks beyond standard project delivery to find what is best for the client and the project.
Putting Together the Puzzle
For one of our law firm clients, innovation came in the form of a giant puzzle. The architect designed an intricately detailed, contemporary wood ceiling to define the firm’s main lobby. Harvey worked directly with our local subcontractor to turn the design into a 3D drawing; we converted the ceiling into individual pieces, sized and labeled accordingly for the ceiling manufacturer. The manufacturer delivered the custom-sized, precut pieces to the site, where each was installed per the architect’s design, fitting together perfectly to form the finished ceiling.
Working With Our Partners
For other clients, we step in even earlier to assist with design. Thanks to our close relationships with Austin’s architectural community, we are trusted to provide guidance as early as the schematic design phase. We can develop a realistic budget with limited information, providing owners a view of all the expenses. With this “shopping list” owners can then determine exactly how to leverage the project budget. The architectural team benefits too; when decisions are made earlier it lowers the possibility of time and money lost to redesign.
