Our Process

At CMBA, we have a unique design philosophy called “Upward Thinking.” We begin by providing you with a solid foundation of knowledge and build up from there with innovative ideas and forward-thinking solutions.

Upward Thinking takes every project to the next level…and the next…and the next. Our goal is to reach a level of excellence far beyond your expectations.

Of course that means quality professional design, but it also means service delivery throughout the construction cycle and, most significantly, afterwards.
