Our Passion...

At WTW, we are passionate about creating memorable, life-enhancing spaces that are highly functional.

We program, plan, and create buildings and communities that reflect the unique values and culture of our clients in highly sustainable environments.

Listen, Then Lead

WTW has a long track record of promoting a lively dialog with the diverse stakeholders across our projects. We are nationally recognized for our ability to build consensus among stakeholders and adjacent groups to design a project that meets the needs of all of the users involved. Embedded in this process of building consensus is our philosophy of "Listen, Then Lead", where we listen to all of those involved in the projects and their needs & desires. We then lead the process in a way that will produce an end design that is a culmination of all of the items that were discussed during the visioning and programming phases of the project. 

Our Commitment to Sustainability 

The proven impact that the built environment has on people and planet has made sustainability an imperative for all projects at WTW. Our sustainability guiding principles are based on the understanding that every project has a rippling effect on the environment and the communities that surround it. Therefore, every project starts with an interdisciplinary session to establish the environmental and wellness benchmarks that will guide future decisions. Including LEED and Living Future accredited professionals, our staff brings a diversity of strengths and talents that support and enhance our building solutions and guide the process from inception to post-occupancy.
