Union Station Denver, Colorado
BOKA Powell delivers Solutions that Inspire. Our passion is guided by 40 years of experience creating compelling, flexible, cost-effective design solutions that directly respond to our clients’ needs. From concept to construction, our emphasis on open communication and collaboration ensures consistent results that exceed expectations. The definition of successful design, regardless of the project scale, extends beyond creating visually stimulating design solutions. BOKA Powell’s ability to deliver a wide variety of domestic and international projects resides in our commitment to respond effectively to diverse budget, schedule, and efficiency goals, while exceeding our clients’ expectations for design excellence. Our full-service architecture, planning and interior design project teams, based in Dallas, Austin, and Fort Worth, Texas are configured to provide a consistently high level of service across all phases of a project. Our clients benefit from a team of experts with both international experience and intimate knowledge of the regions where they live and work. Each team is led by a Principal who maintains a hands-on leadership role throughout the duration of each project, affording our clients access to the programming, design and project management systems that we have refined over 40 years of practice.
Great design solutions often spring from the collaborative discussion of multiple design options between the design team, the client and consultants. We compare and review these options, and through a process of deletion and selection, synthesize the solutions to meet our clients’ needs. A wide range of tools are utilized to communicate design ideas, including physical models, hand sketches, 3D renderings and virtual fly-throughs. By involving the entire project team, we achieve our goals of creating consensus and minimizing road blocks.
Recognized throughout our industry for our ingenuity and practicality, we carefully evaluate new technology in building design and construction, including integrated project delivery and Building Information Modeling (BIM), evolutions in construction systems, new materials, advances in underfloor air distribution and MEP systems, and progressive improvements in the technical and cost performance of building systems and materials. Our philosophy is to safeguard the interests of our clients by thoroughly evaluating the track record of any new concepts and materials prior to proposing their use on a project.
BOKA Powell utilizes an effective communication style that brings order to the multiple ways team members interface by supporting tools they use, including conference calls, e-mail, GoToMeeting and video conferencing. Our online management of project information – including meeting notes, design presentations and construction documents – allows the client and consultant team to have continuous, yet controlled access for review, markup and group discussion. Our pioneering use of Building Information Modeling (BIM) has further enhanced the ability of the consultant team to coordinate complex building systems and discover cost-saving solutions.
BOKA Powell is committed to creating respectful, sustainable design solutions. The main objectives of our green design approach are to minimize the wasteful expense of energy, water and raw materials, and mitigate environmental degradation caused by materials and systems throughout their life cycle, and beyond. We work to achieve these goals as a matter of course throughout all of our projects, striving where possible to specify materials and systems that have an environmental benefit. When sustainability is a stated goal of the client, our LEED®-accredited design teams bring the ability to achieve the highest standards up to LEED Platinum certification.
