Know it inside and out.
Whether it's a specific mechanical or electrical project or a vision for a new building, we start by knowing the challenge inside out. We understand the intricacies of each task, and how multiple disciplines ultimately need to work together to achieve the best possible results. The breadth and depth of SSM's facilities engineering resources guarantee the integrated approach. But we do a lot of listening, too. Working with owners, architects, agents, and process engineers to understand the goals, needs, budgets, and unique considerations. Add our penchant for innovative thinking to the picture, and you'll find SSM to be the best single-source solution for any facilities engineering challenge. No matter how many facets.
From ground up solutions to retrofit and reuse, we bring the team and technology to ensure the result you envision. We are leaders in the use of High Definition Scanning (HDS) and Building Information Modeling (BIM) technology to streamline the process end-to-end, from planning and design through construction. And we do it with a passion for a sustainable built environment and economic operational performance. Workflow planning for occupied spaces is also an SSM strong suit. So if being “down” during renovation isn't an option, you have definitely found your solution here.
There will never be a replacement for face-to-face human connection. Here lies the power of developing social infrastructure.
The Scott Outdoor Amphitheater is a free outdoor structure, offering a space for human connections to occur year-round. Like many amphitheaters, it is a space for people to come together, communicate, and connect. Events held in amphitheaters invite social interactions and establish personal relationships. Every year, rain or shine, the Swarthmore commencement is held in this very space.
Spaces such as courtyards are free; they are accessible; they nurture human-to-human relationships. Use of inviting scenery and purposeful design enhance and promote the social opportunities that courtyards provide.
Welcoming sidewalks and street spaces foster a sense of community and engagement within a public space. By enhancing their streetscapes, Oxford Borough invested in the social engagement of their residents and their visitors.
Community parks that offer many social spaces to enjoy create opportunities for many social relationships to form. Wyomissing Borough’s care and attention to all of the needs makes for a comforting and welcoming place for all to enjoy.
Research demonstrates that beauty, more specifically beautiful spaces, produce a positive emotional experience in the observer, enhancing feelings of joy and well-being.
