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.

Advancing the Campus Technology Agenda

June 18, 2018

Higher education has always relied on innovation. From compressed schedules to semesters abroad, determining new and unique methods to teach students has always been a staple of college and university learning.

The Artistic Side of Architecture

June 11, 2018

Like every industry, architecture has become more and more digital based. We have software and other technology that help create building renderings and give clients a really clear idea of what their project will look like.

Keeping Things Casual for Summer

June 4, 2018

Summer is almost here and it’s a great time to enhance company culture and let employees know they’re valued. For most companies, including CMBA, the “official” start of summer is Memorial Day weekend—and it’s a great time to try a more casual atmosphere for your employees.

Shelter from the Storm

May 29, 2018

School safety is on the mind of every teacher, parent, administrator, and student. While the reason for safety can vary, this time of year the focus almost always turns to weather—in particular keeping students, teachers and staff safe through tornado season.

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.
