why nagle hartray
Integrity has two meanings. As a human quality, it means soundness of moral character. As it relates to execution or performance, it is the quality of wholeness or completeness as in to perform a work in its integrity. Together these meanings define Nagle Hartray’s practice better than any philosophical ideology, market specialization or design brand.
We are distinguished by our empathetic approach—our ability to put ourselves in the shoes of those we design for and of those who construct our designs. Empathy is a moral trait. It is also a leadership trait that makes us effective advocates for our clients’ objectives.
We are also distinguished by the completeness of our instrumental expertise—our commitment to design, technical and project management excellence in equal measure. In a world of accelerating change, our holistic expertise enables us to adapt to emerging challenges and technologies and to consistently realize state of the art facilities.
Buildings in and of themselves do not mean anything, but only take on significance through interaction with people. Our empathetic approach and our holistic instrumental expertise have proved effective means towards creating meaningful architecture—buildings that manifest culture, a sense of place, those we design for. This is our aim, the final measure of the integrity of our work.
