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.

Designing Social Architecture

September 24, 2019

Refining architecture of workspaces isn’t a cure-all for being disconnected, but, designing more socially conscious architecture will make an impact.

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?

How Does Architecture Affect Quality of Life on Campus?

August 19, 2019

College students spend much of their day in or around a college building. But have you considered how these buildings actively affect their quality of life?

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.
