Client Orientation

Robertson Khalafi & Associates seek clients not projects. We see projects as opportunities to demonstrate our skills and commitment to secure other long-term clients.

Service Commitment

We strive to help our clients make wise and effective decisions regarding facility issues. As problem solvers, we will be resourceful enough to invent processes and systems, do all necessary research and secure specialized consultants, to clarify issues and choices for our clients.

Unbroken Circles

We seek to offer services throughout the life cycle of facilities, entering the cycle at whatever point is appropriate, and continuing indefinitely. Accordingly, we have developed skills in Planning, Design, Construction and Facility Management.

Savvy

We remain tuned in to trends influencing the facility decisions our clients need to make, --both today and tomorrow, -- both in their world, and in our world of design and construction. We listen to and learn from our client, to become an extension of his/her organization.

Architectural Stewardship

Robertson Khalafi & Associates is committed to "Architectural Stewardship", the long term care of existing buildings through maintenance, renovation and adaptive use to avoid the cost of new construction and to encourage the conservation of world resources.

Contextualism

We believe that good buildings respond to time and place, and to the constraints under which they emerge. We strive to design facilities that are compatible with both the context in which they are built and the traditions of our clients. We will not let our egos or whim lead design decisions.

Technical Excellence

We seek technical excellence through careful and thoughtful detailing, based on our own experience and our observations of the long-term effects of use and climate on various construction systems and materials.

Cost Control

We see it as our responsibility to continuously inform our clients of the cost implications of their facility related decisions. We strive to control cost through consideration of the life cycle cost and application of the principles of value engineering. Our focus is on value.

Consulting Services

We believe in out sourcing those services better provided by specialists, even when it might seem less expensive to bring those services in-house, so long as we can secure the quality of specialized support in our region. We manage outside services with clear direction and careful coordination, and we accept responsibility for the work of our consultants.

Professional Development

We are committed to the professional development of our staff, and we exercise that commitment through internal and external continuing education. We believe we have a responsibility to develop the skills of younger professionals though mentoring and coaching. We seek to make each staff person a full service professional, committed to the needs of our clients; then we give them opportunities to specialize in the areas of practice in which they can best apply their talents.
