Introduc• •

SBBL ARCHITECTURE + PLANNING was founded in Tucson in 1997. Our projects include healthcare, cultural, residential, hospitality, office, and retail facilities. We understand the importance of responsiveness and client satisfaction and are readily available to our clients. • • As the lead consultant on an architectural/engineering team, we have a good working relationship with several civil, structural, mechanical and electrical engineers in multiple states. • Creating inspiring volume and space is one goal for our projects. Through clear com- • munication and a commitment to client satisfaction, SBBL creates unique architectural solutions and functional designs while meeting time and budget constraints. Each project respectfully complements and integrates with the surrounding environment with a sensitivity to adjacent facilities and activities.

Sustainability - SBBL incorporates sustainable design and products in as many of our projects as possible. Ken Imoehl is SBBL’s LEED Certified Professional. In the past 5 years we have completed projects requiring LEED certification or equivalency including retail centers and two healthcare facilities. Design for Occupied Buildings - A number of our projects, including healthcare facilities and a fitness center were designed to allow for construction to occur while the facilities were in full use. This work requires good communication skills with the owner and contractors and creative solutions to minimize disruption. Phased Construction - We have experience designing phased projects requiring us to anticipate how future work will integrate with current phases. Building Systems - SBBL has produced construction documents for more technically challenging projects such as clean rooms, ice storage systems, patient care emergency power, chiller plants, and water systems. “I don’t think anyone could have taken our existing building and made it look as new and improved as SBBL did. It was a very creative solution and on a personal level, I appreciate having SBBL’s talented team as our architect. - Randy Emerson, JCC Board Member

“From day one, we have been very impressed with SBBL’s unique combination of creativity and knowledge of the more technical side of architecture. We highly recommend their services to anyone.” - Debbie Rich, CEO, Girl Scouts of Southern Arizona

In our experience with healthcare, there are many important functions that are essential for a successful operation.

Corridors are wide to assure quick and efficient movement. Accessibility should exceed typical standards. Mechanical systems require controllability. Fire-rated zones allow for isolation of other zones. Sound attenuation and privacy are important considerations as is smooth flooring with a minimum of surface changes. Allowance for bariatric patients is necessary as is infection control. These and other functional aspects become essential parts of the programming. Additional Projects

Architecture is built space. It’s that simple. At SBBL we strive to develop innovative space that matches the client’s goals, mission, and program. Most projects have financial constraints or may require significant support from donations. We find the balance between real world issues and spaces that inspire. At SBBL, we believe that creativity is in the solutions to real world problems.
