NEEDBASED has developed a track record of successful projects which implement the highest levels of sustainability. With significant construction and project management experience  NEEDBASED is able to develop designs that function in terms of cost, beauty, and performance.   This ability allows projects to be built on budget and that meet the performance specifications.

Concepts and computer renderings are fun and an important beginning to the creative process, however concepts are also useless unless they are able to be integrated into the real world. NEEDBASED is proud to have a 100% built ratio, meaning that 100% of the projects where we have completed the design have been built. We feel that this is the best indication of our firms ability to design beautiful buildings that our clients love, and this at the end of the day is what we are all about.
