The successes enjoyed by Leo A Daly over the past 95 years are a result of leadership, outstanding professional talent and a design excellence philosophy, all of which guide and encourage design, client service and innovation.
Our design excellence philosophy revolves around our central goal - to create structures and environments of lasting aesthetic quality and functionality. We strive to design spaces that capture the imagination, lift the spirit and move the emotions. These are the structures that stand as testaments to the power of planning, architecture, engineering and interior design to better our global surroundings.
Our designs incorporate technological innovations while remaining responsive to their contexts - social, historical and natural. Each project focuses on balancing contemporary design, trends and traditions, technology and sustainability.
Works of excellence start with a sound design philosophy. Leo A Daly is equally committed to working in partnership with clients to meet specific client goals. Eschewing from fads and artistic expression for its own sake, we believe that every project is born of a specific business need. Meeting that need is a true test of our success.
Design must produce a return on investment and be profitable for our clients, in whatever way their profits are measured. We have, since 1915, been committed to delivering timeless designs that are practical, buildable, on time and within the client's budget.
The philosophy that guides our organization is simple: strive for constant improvement in both process and product to ensure that clients receive the best possible design, innovation and service. Our design excellence program, led by our vice chairman and corporate director of design and office design directors, uphold this philosophy. Through this program, an internal review process creates and maintains a uniformly high standard and encourages sharing of innovative ideas.
