TDSi’s focus is on well crafted design solutions. The firm believes that to be successful, the project must respond to the needs of the client and users, be environmentally responsible, and be a positive addition to the built environment. Every project brings with it inherent design potential. TDSi is passionate in its role as designers to uncover and develop that potential.
The firm’s approach to design and production is founded on the traditional techniques - the design process still starts with pencil and pen on tracing paper - but is enhanced with the power of today's digital technology. Documents are produced on PC’s employing AutoCAD’s Revit Building Information Modeling software. Technical specifications are produced with BDS SpecLink. The web based collaboration and organization tools of AEC-Sync are utilized throughout the process. A variety of digital photography and graphic software applications are used to produce high quality graphic materials.
TDSi’s firm size is by design. The staff size allows the principals of the firm to truly be directly involved with every project. Their direct involvement balances passion for quality design with the need for client service
TDSi believes that success comes from crafting environmentally responsible and sustainable buildings. TDSi designs each project with daylighting, passive energy strategies and site placement in mind. Solar and wind energy systems are incorporated whenever possible.
