Wearing both the “architect” and “engineer” hats at EVstudio, I experience frequent cross-over between the two fields and get to participate in a wide variety of projects. Historically, engineers and architects have been known to butt heads at every corner (or corner detail!), but having experience in both fields allows me to see things from both perspectives. I am not the only person at EVstudio with this background and vision. Part of the reason that I choose to work at EVstudio is that I believe that multi-disciplinary firms will eventually be the only competitive source of design. I say this because we offer a great value to our clients by eliminating the necessity of needing an interpreter or diplomat to act as negotiator between the engineers and architects for every project as well as having the experience to know how to design for both aesthetics and efficiency.
Recently, I have been contributing to the completion of the structural design of a series of production homes for Lennar Homes. Two of Lennar’s principles (from their website) that most align with those of EVstudio’s are as follows:
• Our Lennar Associates are committed to being innovators in the home-building industry, and are constantly focused on improving the Quality of our homes.
• And our Lennar Associates are committed to delivering the best possible home Value to each of our Customers.
Although EVstudio is only providing the engineering for this series of models, we know how to look at the plans as both architects and engineers which allows us to create the most efficient and sensible design for the structure of the homes. This leads to cost savings for the home builder and then, ultimately, makes their homes more affordable and economical for home buyers.
We are looking forward to working with Lennar Homes and are pleased to have been chosen to provide engineering services for some of their projects.
