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.

Does Design Really Matter in K12 Spaces?

September 12, 2019

What does your school look like? And how engaged are your students? Does design really matter in K12 schools? Does it make a change in learning?

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.
