We don't just build buildings.
We build relationships.

Integrated

In 1891, Engineer Fred J.H. Rickon joined Charles L. Thompson to form one of the first known architecture and engineering partnerships. Since then, we have been known for seamless integration and collaboration of building services disciplines, offering a unique set of skills that allow us to be your partner throughout the entire life cycle of your facility. Having all architectural and engineering disciplines in-house has proven beneficial to clients because projects can be closely coordinated and considered as a whole.       

Architecture

A successful facility is much more than good architectural design. Success is based on the resolution of complex solutions, with the application of the widest range of technical and aesthetic skills. Cromwell brings a full range of building and building-related experience to ensure that designs can be executed under the tightest cost constraints yet meet the functional needs of our clients.

Engineering

Engineers provide the science behind how a building is put together. Our engineering disciplines are housed under one roof and work cohesively together, along with our architects, interior designers, and construction administrators, to provide the client with more comprehensive and integrated whole building system design solutions.

Design-Build

Design-Build offers speed of delivery, cost, and quality control in an environment where team work is incredibly important. Cromwell has been delivering projects — including almost every building type — in this manner, for nearly 30 years.

Construction Services

Prompt and reliable field oversight during construction is crucial to the success of any project. Without the presence of sound Construction Administration practices, even the best set of documents may fail to produce an excellent product. Cromwell’s Construction team is balanced between designers and construction professionals to ensure the project is managed to exceed client expectations.

Interiors

Interior Design has been an important element in Cromwell’s design services for decades. Members of ASID, who are also NCIDQ certificate holders, work as an integral part of the design team, providing value-added services to all of Cromwell’s projects. Cromwell Interiors also offers furniture, fixture, and accessory design and procurement services.

Planning

Good master planning is more than good design — it must be responsive to economic, real property, and engineering determinants, as well as the functional requirements of future growth. Cromwell has a proven record of planning for medical, corporate, educational, recreational, and industrial development; and in a significant number of commissions, continues into implementation as Designer of Record.

Sustainable Design

Cromwell believes that building “green” is building smart. Green building concepts are coordinated through our LEED-accredited professionals to ensure the design and implementation of sustainable criteria as directed and requested by our clients. Our goal, through the promotion of green buildings, is to develop environmentally-responsible, healthy, and economically-feasible projects for our clients.

Energy Services

Buildings represent 39% of primary energy use in the U.S., and studies have shown that 30% of that use is inefficient or unnecessary. Through Cromwell Energy Services, we're placing special emphasis on reducing those numbers. Whether your facility is seeking LEED certification or energy consumption needs improvements, Cromwell Energy Services can provide a wide range of services to fit your needs, including maximizing the efficiency of your facilities, while contributing to the bottom line.

Facility Services

The key to great sustainable design is to ensure longevity of our clients' facilities and critical equipment. Cromwell Facility Services focuses on proper preventative maintenance and operational strategies that are critical for reliability and preservation of assets, as well as reduced operating costs. Our technical team of designers, energy engineers, and facility staff can manage all facility-related aspects of both new and existing facilities. Learn more

Life cycle services

Demolition / Land Acquisition

Our work often begins with assisting clients in identifying the most appropriate site for a new project. Through site assessments, property condition assessments, masterplanning, and feasibility studies, our in-house engineering and facilities teams identify the risks and potential of specific sites. 

Planning & Design

A successful facility is much more than good architectural design. Success is based on the resolution of complex issues, through the application of the widest range of technical and aesthetic skills. Our highly collaborative process leverages the talents of our architects, engineers, facility staff, owners, and end users. We employ proven design processes, including value engineering and life cycle analysis, to ensure that we deliver a custom solution that exceeds your building needs. 

Documentation & Approvals

With a long-tenured team controlling quality, schedule, and cost in-house, Cromwell is able to ensure that designs can be executed under the tightest cost constraints. This interdisciplinary approach not only yields faster, better-coordinated documents, but also fewer surprises during the permitting and construction phase of the project. 

Construction

Prompt and reliable field oversight during construction is crucial to the success of any project. Without the presence of sound construction administration practices, even the best set of documents may fail to produce an excellent product. Cromwell's construction services are balanced between designers and construction professionals, to ensure the project is managed to exceed client expectations — from design to occupancy and beyond.

Building Performance Analysis

As buildings become more complex, building owners are losing money because their buildings are not being managed properly. Our technical team of design engineers, energy engineers, and facility staff will work to assess and operate your facility to reduce operating costs through preventative maintenance, system optimization, and proper long-range planning. Services include: energy audits, retro-commissioning, maintenance planning, and capital and operating budget forecasting. 

Asset Performance Operations

Cromwell Energy Services includes a group of seasoned engineers, certified professionals, and LEED-accredited professionals who provide the experience and knowledge necessary to make your facility more energy efficient. From commissioning to energy audits and life-cycle cost analysis, Cromwell Energy Services provides a wide range of services to fit your needs. 

Repurpose / Disposal

Similar to the land acquisition phase, Cromwell's involvement in repurpose/disposal is to assist clients in determining if an existing building can be repurposed or updated to suit a new or evolving program, or if a new building or site is necessary. In this phase, our technical team provides property condition assessments, energy audits, programming, and feasability studies to determine the best course of action.

Disciplined

We believe in a rigorous and disciplined approach to project management and delivery, adhering to submittal schedules and budgets while still achieving excellence in design.

Schedule Control

Regular team meetings and weekly client meetings help identify potential issues long before construction begins, ensuring an accurate and realistic schedule.

Cost Control

Detailed estimates and conservative materials selections have resulted in an excellent history of providing projects that are within or below our estimated cost.

Quality Control

A single Quality Control Checklist throughout all phases of the project not only improves the quality of the design documents, but also reduces the number of errors and time required for the technical review.

Flexible

With a depth of staff to produce the largest projects and flexibility to perform on the smallest tasks, our approach to projects of varying sizes may differ, but our attention to detail and level of service remains the same.
