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.

Our Clients

Bringing Rural Healthcare to the 21st Century

August 12, 2019

Often times the spotlight healthcare is pointed toward larger urban facilities while rural facilities are left in the dust. It’s important that they’re not.

Why Higher Ed Should Consider Active Design.

July 26, 2019

How can you encourage students to take the stairs instead of the elevator? Or to walk to class instead of driving? Active design may just be the answer!

Does Architecture Affect Your Quality of Life?

July 16, 2019

You probably spend most of your day in or around buildings. But have you considered how these buildings are actively affecting your quality of life?

Is Natural Light Really That Important?

May 29, 2019

Businesses aren’t the only ones benefiting from natural light. Colleges & universities are seeing increased performance when designing with natural light.

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.
