Architectural Services Throughout New England
At Banwell Architects, design is a process that is constantly evolving as a project comes to life, many times requiring different services that may not have been considered when the project commenced. Our professional and passionate staff of architects each bring unique expertise to our firm, enabling us to offer a wide arrange of services depending on the specific needs of each of our clients.
Most clients would prefer to limit the number of partners needed when starting the design/build process, this is why Banwell Architects offers a full range of building design services from conceptual design through construction administration. We take the headache out of managing multiple different vendors and give you a trusted partner for all your architectural design and project needs.
Since 1970 Banwell Architects is proud to be one of New England’s leaders in sustainable design and development. LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design), is the most widely used green building rating system in the world. CHPS (Collaborative for High-Performance Schools), maintains the nation’s most authoritative criteria for sustainable, cost-effective schools with high-quality learning environments.
We recognize the need for responsible, energy efficient designs that reduces the consumption of non-renewable resources, minimize waste and create healthy, sustainable environments. We embrace this challenge while maintaining our clients’ needs, both functional and financial.
At Banwell Architects we embrace and utilize the latest in architectural technology. Our entire team utilizes 3D modeling, giving us the ability to efficiently take a one-dimensional idea and turn it into a viewable and measurable 3D drawing that can easily be shared with clients and stakeholders.
Experience and proven success are critical when considering a partner for a bond vote presentation. At Banwell Architects our achievements in this field speaks for itself. We work hand-in-hand with our clients to ensure that the public school project receives outstanding research and marketing to achieve a successful vote.
The master planning process in architecture includes analysis, recommendations and proposals for a site’s population, economy, housing, transportation, community facilities and land use. At Banwell, this large-scale design challenge is something we both welcome and embrace.
Banwell Architects provides the most up-to-date code compliance for every project that we work on. We have built strong relationships with many code officials that gives our clients the confidence that a project will be 100% code compliant. Our facility needs assessment is a comprehensive information gathering process. We identify and analyze whether needs can be satisfied through the existing facility or whether a new facility is required.
Here at Banwell, we believe that historic preservation is one of the most critical aspects of renovation designs. With such storied New England architecture surrounding us, the upholding of tradition and history are paramount when we take on any project of historical significance.
