Every Friday afternoon at 4:30, a design presentation is made to all staff. This typically involves a project currently in design, which gives the architect and designers an opportunity to present their work in a larger forum and receive design critique from staff members not involved directly in the project.

CorganCREATE is an initiative way to foster creativity and enable thought leaders to build value for our firm and to address ongoing changes in our profession as they relate to the built environment. We have all had thoughts of developing something beyond the opportunity available on a project, thought of a better way, wondered if thing A would work when applied to thing B, or just wanted to explore. We are curious and creative by nature and this is your opportunity to tell us what you would like to explore.
The Design Applications Committee mission is to focus on firm wide BIM initiatives, Revit team training, resources, and development of best practice workflows.
