Our Clients

We work across

5 Industries and

5 Cultures

We have learned that design can change a business and change a culture.  Our diverse clientele allows us to leverage our broad knowledge across multiple specialties.  Lessons learned on access and accessibility from senior care, for example, inform the design of patient rooms in acute care hospitals.

Levi + Wong Design’s portfolio covers the complete continuum of care including Master Planning, Medical Office Buildings, Ambulatory, Acute Care, Rehabilitation, Long Term Care, and Senior Living.  Over the past 25 years, Levi + Wong Design projects encompass over 15 Acute Care Hospitals, 10 Specialty Care Hospitals, 150 Senior Care / Living facilities, and 30 Corporate and Technology facilities totaling over $750M construction cost.  

Management

The Whole Project

Our quality BIM-based construction documents produce more accurate bidding.  The project timeline is shortened with fewer rounds of contractor negotiations and faster approvals.  Projects don’t spiral out of control.  Value-added services include evaluation of construction managers, advice on value engineering, initiation and management of the approvals process, and project close-out.  We believe the architect is ideally suited to provide project management for small and medium sized jobs.

We believe that working in an open partnership based on experience and trust will produce a project that is appropriate, creative, and will result in a positive outcome that creates real value for all parties.

Our Process

Virtual Design

3-dimensional computer based design is embedded in our process. Our 16-year commitment to Virtual Design and BIM is producing results; we design and communicate better with 3D.  We actively engage users in an iterative design process, on-site and on-line, to communicate our design intent.  We offer this service because it saves time and money by simplifying communication and decision-making.

We believe that working in an open partnership based on experience and trust will produce a project that is appropriate, creative, and will result in a positive outcome that creates real value for all parties.
