BTGA has an overarching commitment to the professional client relationship – one in which we lend our expertise as advisors to your building process.
Our buildings reflect our client’s goals, supported with strong design skills and thorough project administration. We strive to be active problem-solvers, diplomatic advisors, speedy facilitators, and careful listeners.
BTGA understands the priorities of cost and schedule. We pride ourselves on providing good design with clear technical and professional expertise, while meeting cost constraints. We give immediate cost feedback on decision items, and advise our clients on least-cost alternatives. We enjoy working on small as well as large scale projects.
