We have the best clients!
We really do! Each one has very specific project needs! Each one a unique opportunity to create a “Raving Fan”!
Variety is the spice of life. It drives us and helps keep the creative juices flowing. There is another ingredient in the mix that is equally as important and that’s consistency.
We have a consistent process that we follow regardless of project or program. Call it the recipe for success. The process covers the steps in the complex flow of designing and building projects for individual customers. It’s the consistency of our approach that is reflected in successfully executed projects.
The bottom line on all of this is communication. Firm Ground strives for continuous improvement in how and when to talk to our clients. It is easy when things are progressing smoothly, but it is in the moments where something has gone awry that relationships are really forged and strengthened. Our aim is to create personal relationships with our clients that grow over time. Share in the risks and rewards, and celebrate the success!
How can we get you to your celebration?
Harriet’s Inn is the newest project built in the East Harriet Neighborhood although you might not notice it. Smart Associates and Firm Ground teamed up with the restaurant owners to create a turn of the century English pub in Minneapolis. With this inspiration we surveyed the area to document the feel and context of the neighborhood to build a building that would fit in and look as if it has always been there.
This new restaurant enriches the neighborhood in many ways. First and most obviously we have replaced an abandoned gas station with a warm inviting neighborhood pub. Read More...
We would like to extend a resounding thank you to each and everyone who attended our open house last month. It certainly was a successful one. It was a joy to see all of you and we are so grateful you were able to celebrate our 7th anniversary with us. In case you were wondering about the delicious food we served, it was from our new friends, This Little Piggy Catering. The delicious food they create is only outmatched by the service, and we are proud to help them grow their business by designing their expansion.
Thank you all once again, and here's to another 7 wonderful years!
Firm Ground would like to introduce you to the newest member of our staff, Obettu Subah. Obettu is currently an intern from the drafting program at Minneapolis Community and Technical College, but will be joining us full time this spring upon her graduation. We are so happy to have Obettu as part of our team, and proud to see the progress she has made in such a short time.
"I am always excited to getting to know new clients and working on their projects, I find this very fulfilling. I believe that each client is unique and have awesome ideas and just need help bringing that to life, and this inspires me tolisten to the clients understand their needs, so that together me and my team-members alongside with the clients can make their ideas come to life." -Obettu Subah
We would also like to share our excitement in our tiniest addition to the Firm Ground family. Jeff Schuler and his wife welcomed their first baby girl on March 18th. She is perfect and mom and dad are over the moon!
