Integrated Design Solutions, LLC was founded in November 1999 by the seven former principals of Giffels Hoyem Basso, LLC (GHB), who practiced together there as managing partners for ten years. Their trademarks at GHB were their ability to integrate architecture and engineering into cohesive design solutions, as well as their unending commitment to exceptional customer service. Thus, Integrated Design Solutions was born. Moving forward, our emphasis remains on wholly integrated solutions, and we call to the front the DESIGN aspect of our name. From architectural to engineering answers, we’re all designers pushing the envelopes, asking “What if…?” and working together to build the very best solutions for you, the Owner.
Our leadership remains energetic, passionate and focused on its mission statement: “We believe in uncompromising customer service beginning with quality Integrated Design Solutions for our clients. Our commitment to progressive vision, integrity and leadership is carried through every member of our staff. We believe our workplace should be built around its greatest asset: our team. Our workplace represents our culture and our identity, and our designers know this means our space must do more than ever before. Whether our project challenges are employee engagement, facilitating collaboration, or structuring resources to maintain work / life balance, our approach to design and problem solving is uniquely tailored to each company we work with.
