Our Approach

At Long & Associates, our approach revolves around one crucial element: communication. We recognize that effective communication is the key to success in every aspect of our work. It all starts with engaging in extensive conversations with the client and building user groups, aiming to gain a comprehensive understanding of their desires and requirements for the project. Armed with this valuable insight, we embark on the design process while concurrently collaborating with construction firms to determine pricing and lead times, ensuring a holistic approach that aligns with the client’s vision.

Our approach follows a structured progression. Step one involves thorough evaluation, where we conduct on-site visits to assess the building or site. Step two entails a comprehensive analysis, taking into account the findings from the evaluation, the owner’s needs and preferences, and budgetary considerations. This step allows us to establish a clear understanding of the project’s scope and cost implications. Finally, in step three, we undertake the synthesis phase, where we bring together our expertise to design the building while adhering to the designated schedule and budget. By following this systematic approach, we strive to transform our clients’ dreams into tangible realities that exceed expectations.
