One of the pieces of our business model is forming strong partnerships with other individuals and other companies. It has been my observation that this strengthens both parties.
In 2007 EVstudio formed a joint venture with Gene Dane and Associates called 157 Architecture. 157 was formed for the express purpose of better serving the commercial architecture needs of the GDA clients in Central Texas. There is quite a building boom in the area North of Austin and a lack of quality local firms to pursue the work. Gene’s firm is well positioned but wanted the added backing that EVS brings to the table.
To date we’ve done a number of exciting projects together, an Aaron’s Rents Furniture store in San Angelo, a mixed use master plan in Harker Heights and a retail clothing store in Harker Heights. We’re currently doing a feasibility study to develop a large New Urbanist development in Central Texas and are actively pursuing a number of retail, medical, office, multi family and civic projects in the area.
