02_THE 7 PRINCIPLES OF PRACTICE
UNITAS is the name of a staff carried by the
Master Builders during the Middle Ages and was
used for laying out and measuring structures.
We believe the name is appropriate for our 7
Principles of Practice, the guide by which we
measure the quality of our work, including
procedures, techniques and all processes.
1. COMMITMENT TO EXCELLENCE
We believe in the principle of people working
together to achieve the “Very Best” and we are
proud of our high standards that we set in our
2. INNOVATION AND CREATIVITY
Our firm is always looking for a fresh approach or
a new technique in the project delivery process.
Innovation and Creativity come naturally to us
and are perhaps our most notable abilities. We
feel that by implementing these qualities we
produce facilities that are up to date, that provide
effective functional environments for our clients
and are part of our value added design.

One of the most important decisions an Owner
can make and one that is too often taken for
granted is the selection of the most appropriate
Project Delivery System.

“Design–Bid–Build” approach; assuming that it is
the most expeditious and cost saving approach,
