The retail industry moves extremely quick and provides unique challenges. These range from budget, scope, coordination, and special needs from various teams. Cripe provides architectural design services and tenant coordination for the landlord at various locations across the United States. The first phase of these various projects involve working around a multitude of existing conditions and documenting them for the owner in order to provide the best possible information so the owner can make informed decisions. These projects also require close communication with various design team members (engineers, mall directors, tenant coordinators, contractors, as well as the tenant architectural team). These projects are fast-paced and require good mangement and communication to ensure the project runs smoothly and successfully. They also require an understanding of various jurisdictions and the associated code implications as well as various permitting requirements.
