How do you select an attorney, or perhaps an investment strategist for your organization? Do you use the phone book; call a golfing buddy; ask your neighbor? Probably not. You get recommendations from experts, you research performance, and in the end you make an educated selection.
Choosing a designer should be a comparable process. After all, these are people who will assume a leading role in one of the largest capital investments your organization may ever make. They will shape your institutional identity. Their design will brand your organization and help direct its future. Selecting the firm that truly fulfills your aspirations and understands your needs is no easy task. How do you find the right fit, the right experience, the right partner?
That's where jones|kroloff comes in. We help clients identify the right designer for their project. It's something we've been doing for years, and for which we are uniquely qualified.
You may not have heard of us, but your designers have. Casey Jones helped run the largest development agency in the U.S. and also one of the leading architectural research centers. Reed Kroloff edited the nation's most respected architectural magazine and is a renowned educator and critic. Together, we've spent the last 20 years researching and writing about the leading architects, landscape architects, and designers in this country and around the world.
Since forming our practice 5 years ago, we've helped clients ranging in size from a local arts agency in Hartford, Connecticut to the Federal Government of Mexico. We demystify the selection process for clients embarking on their first project, and we've provided a fresh eye and new guidance to entities with extensive building portfolios. We've developed dozens of selections processes including design competitions, Requests for Qualifications, and new, hybrid strategies as well to meet each client's unique needs.
Over time, we've developed a market specialization in Cultural and Educational projects. But we've also worked with governments, non-profits, and entertainment venues. Our company is intentionally small so we can remain versatile and nimble, while providing each client with attentive and personalized service.
