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.

Are Community Colleges the Next Frontier for Bold Architecture?

October 15, 2019

A core aspect of advancing our country’s higher education system is improving the community college experience for students.

One of the aspects of CMBA that I greatly appreciate is that they clearly understand the significance of having their name associated with a project. Of course that means quality professional design, but it also means service delivery throughout the construction cycle and, most significantly, afterwards.
