Local leadership promotes design excellence

When it comes to architectural design, it pays to commission a local architectural firm that can aptly expedite a health care or life sciences project through the development process. Pacific Cornerstone Architects' design team possesses the needed technical expertise, creative professional talent, and knowledge regarding local and state requirements. The firm's established working relationships with such review and approval agencies as OSHPD, DHS, the city of San Diego, Caltrans, the Planning Commission and city traffic divisions help a project come together with skill, speed and ease.

Knowledge is power

Intimately familiar with the San Diego area, Pacific Cornerstone Architects has successfully completed a remarkable amount of master-planned, entitlement, permitting, architectural design and tenant improvement projects for more than 20 million square feet of bioscience and related technology-driven space. Understanding the community, uncovering hidden issues and resolving them before they become problematic, and coordinating early and often with all agencies involved are also important means of successfully fostering community involvement in clients' projects.

Extensive principal involvement

With a solid reputation for principal-level involvement, the team at Pacific Cornerstone Architects is able to proceed smoothly through all phases of the design and construction process. The three principals, Tim Schulze, AIA, Sean Tracy and Kevin Perry, AIA, have a vested interest in the company's projects. Their hands-on participation helps to ensure technical excellence, foster improved communications, strengthen project management, and expedite the entitlement, planning, design and construction processes. It also provides opportunities for high-level peer reviews and quality control for each project. Team members can easily meet with Pacific Cornerstone Architects' partners on a regular basis or at a moment's notice -- whether it's at the project site, a client's office or at any one of its design team's offices -- to review plans, brainstorm solutions, discuss challenges and present findings on projects.

Specialized service

With a demonstrated ability to expedite entitlements, keep projects on track, understand each project's unique requirements and deliver on its promises, Pacific Cornerstone Architects offers cutting-edge systems design, interior and exterior aesthetics, precision cost estimating and targeted equipment planning on all of its projects.
