Design projects consistently demand tight time schedules, high quality and accuracy within budgetary limits. The benefits of an integrated team with varied
professionals and a history of working together become evident through the integrated design approach with tight coordination. We have specific processes developed
over years of experience to advance design in a sequential and controlled manner meeting the varied demands of the overall project - including budget and schedule -
rather than a myopic focus or advancement of any single area to the overall detriment. When your future success depends upon the realization of a single project,
the design partner you choose needs to have the people, expertise and technology to meet your goal.
PEOPLE. EXPERIENCE. SOLUTIONS

With talent and creativity woven with the practicality of our construction background, Jackola's architectural studio develops projects with creative use of form and
materials to meet owners project goals and requirements with spaces that are desirable. We do this while realizing that the economic requirements of projects require
maintaining budgetary control throughout the design process. Working with your goals, budget and schedule requirements, we have a developed and specific process we call
DISCOVERY to lead you through the intricacies of programming, space planning, and concept development while satisfying jurisdictional and code requirements and the
realities of engineered supporting systems and site necessities. We invite you to visit our Project Gallery and view the design
capabilities through projects large and small, budgets excessive and constrained. We at Jackola focus on design targeted to owner need and use. We view ourselves and our
studio as a tool in the owners hand to realize a successful project by reconciling the design with budgetary and other constraints.

When you are buying property, a building (or both), it's a significant investment. Jackola can assist by lending our expertise and performing multi-discipline site
observations and compiling our findings into a property condition report. We have provided this service on raw land and existing buildings and can tailor the report for
specific needs. Whether its a new purchase or an existing building in your inventory, the property condition report can be expanded to a capital needs assessment and
prioritization with associated costs. This allows you to determine project feasibility, perform economic analysis for the project and master plan improvements to existing
sites. In some cases, cost segregation analysis can be performed to categorize expenses into differing classes that make sure you are taking advantage of maximum

Every project starts with a site. Integrated site and building design helps client's best realize their vision and goals for a project. Working with architects to
position the building for views, natural lighting, design goals and jurisdictional constraints, our civil group will design necessary grading, drainage, structures,
utilities, landscaping and surfacing in support of the vision.
Jackola's civil engineering team, along with the surveying group, can service your large scale land development needs as well. From the initial land plan, we can work with the local jurisdiction to annex, change zoning, subdivide and plat necessary lots for the development. In support of this development, the civil team has experience in designing roads, grading, paths, dry and wet utility extensions, landscaping, lighting, feature elements, and other items necessary in support of the development vision.
Jackola is an integrated office. We can provide civil design as a stand-alone service and we offer efficiencies by integrating civil design with architecture and other building systems. With surveying, land use planning and our Revit and Civil 3D modeling systems we can provide seamless transition from raw ground to building occupancy.

Integrated, coordinated, and well thought out design is one thing. It's another for that to translate through the process of bidding, substitution requests, value
engineering proposals, submittals, installation and construction, system start up and final use. The process has many opportunities for a system to fall short of the
original owner intent and requirements. By employing a building commissioning process, there is a dedicated focus on managing the performance of the building envelope
and systems from assuring owners project requirements and goals are clear all the way through start up and implementations of control systems for optimum efficiency.
Whether for our own projects or as a third party, our commissioning process pays for itself through goal satisfaction, proper system integration and lower energy costs.
Jackola is an integrated office. If requested, our CxA services can be integrated into the building design process and followed through during bidding, construction, system startup and occupancy. With surveying, land use planning and our Revit modeling systems we can provide seamless transition from raw ground to building occupancy.
By integrating interiors people with our Architectural Design Studio, Jackola can offer designs that are consistent from the outside to the inside. With designers that
are engaged and enthused with multiple styles, Jackola can provide tasteful solutions that are consistent with the architecture of the building, the owner's tastes and
requirements, the building's engineered systems, and the project budget. Whether it's finish selection of paints, colors, materials, flooring, or expanded services with
furniture and fixture selection and procurement, our interiors staff love what they do and it shows.

Jackola has the benefit of approaching land planning from multiple perspectives. Having professional land surveyors, engineers, architects and landscape designers in
house benefits the land planning process by evaluating concepts to accommodate the realities of property law, drainage and utility issues, traffic flow, landscape design
principles and aesthetics, property use goals and zoning requirements. Having worked on many projects of varying types over our 45 year history, we understand the
requirements of different uses to be accommodated in the planning process. We can also assist with the writing of CC and R's, development design guidelines, or other items
that may assist in maintaining the design integrity of the development. Browse our selected projects gallery below for examples of recent work and please
