The Who, What and Why of Merrin & Cranston
Leaders of successful projects never lose sight of people. While all projects require the complex task of balancing time, cost and quality, the needs and expectations of the people for whom the buildings serve must be overlain with these objectives. At completion, you then have a richly dynamic creation that has a diverse array of design outcomes to ultimately, serve people. Merrin and Cranston – People Centred Architects
People Centred Architecture
As professional service providers, we embrace the needs of the various individuals and what that brings to the project delivery process. At times, it can be difficult to aim high and set goals of meeting these diverse needs, in amongst, sometimes complex project delivery processes, but that is where we want to be for optimum influence.
Why We're Different
The difference with Merrin and Cranston is that we do value relationships and believe this produces better project outcomes. Our experience has shown that when we focus on valuing people, all people, during the process, it actually makes the trials and tribulations of project delivery worthwhile and significant for all.
It’s our commitment to people for whom we are ultimately delivering for, and the people with whom we are partnered with to make it happen, that keeps us going, ultimately towards project success. And for us, project success isn’t just about the short term, it’s about the long-term use, efficient operation and quality build that lasts over time.
People Centred Design
By applying our design and management skills to the integration of each project’s complex criteria, we can influence the betterment of living environs, and improve people’s lives as they live, work and play in the spaces we have helped design and create.
