We are purposeful.

Innovative design must be purposeful to be effective. At BSA, we do more than design buildings; we create LifeStructures – innovative and inviting spaces that not only house the activities of healing, learning and discovery but actually contribute to them. We approach problems from different angles and challenge boundaries of the past. To work with us is to join a group of inspiring and talented individuals who are doing purposeful work.

We are partners.

Partner is defined as participating in an undertaking with another or others with shared risks and rewards. Long-term relationships with our clients deliver success and value recognized both internally and externally. We are committed to our client’s success and partner with them to achieve it. Collaboration and empowerment are vital to our process. We value input from all staff regardless of role, tenure or experience. We believe in the power of ownership. Our Employee Stock Ownership Program (ESOP) structure underscores that commitment, empowering all team members to impact the firm’s performance positively and, ultimately, share in the financial success of the firm.

We change lives.

We can’t imagine anything better than improving lives. We are passionate about our mission of creating inspired solutions that improve lives. Every BSA client receives the benefit of that passion as we design spaces that affect everyone utilizing the facility or working at the facility.

Our focus on improving lives applies internally too. Our people are truly our greatest asset. When you join BSA, we will strive to provide you with the tools to be successful.

How does your work impact the lives of others?

“The work, that is the types of projects, we do are meaningful.  We enable health professionals to make people well.  We encourage learning through spaces that allow instructors and students to better collaborate and communicate.  We accelerate discovery by designing research spaces that inspire and intersect disciplines. “Creating inspired solutions that change lives” is not a slogan, it’s a culture.”
