ZERO Ø DAY

Before the first day there was ø Day

 

It not about glomming on, it’s about a keen awareness of sequence and knowing the optimal point in your process for rock solid information to be its most useful. That’s now, when the concepts are fresh and the “how much” and “how long” haven’t been answered. You won’t even know we are there, but the information we provide will be food for thought.

Environmental and Schematic Design

 

Studio Black is watching every angle. Before a project has a chance to push your team in the wrong direction, we study everything. With the built environment coming at you from every direction, we get ahead of it by getting granular. HVAC details, display ventilation, IDF locations, IT firewalls, millwork assembly just to name a few of the potential environmental pain points.
