FieldxStudio (“Field and Studio”) is a full-service architecture, construction and real estate development firm focused on crafting inspired and contextually-sensitive environments.

Our collaborative design and build methodology recall the traditions of the Master Builder approach to construction, and our tailored range of services provides a boutique experience to our clients.

The FieldxStudio design and build project delivery is a departure from the traditional design/bid/build model and includes extensive pre-construction services in a more integrative approach where the project objectives are determined from the start and managed from the design phases through the completion of construction.

Our method of delivery provides full time management and coordination and real time analysis and feedback of design decisions and their impact to the project budget and schedule.

Bringing together this complementary range of services and expertise under one company creates a vertically integrated service model, ensuring a consistent attention to detail and design quality, a focus on constructability, informed and real time decision making, and a streamlined project delivery process.

On the service side of the business, vertical integration provides a competitive advantage over the traditional service delivery methods offered by Architects, Contractors, and Developers operating as separate and distinct entities. On the development/asset management side of the business, these abilities ensure closer management of the entire life cycle of an investment, from concept to turnover.

Why “X”?

Rather than an “&”, we use an “X” in our company name to indicate “and”. This is both a nod to the spirit of collaboration, and a subtle indication of our philosophy on the value of design and build. We believe that the traditional design/bid/build methodology achieves only a sum value of the roles of construction and architecture.

By combining these roles under one roof, we believe that the design and build methodology can multiply (hence the “X”) the value of both the construction and architecture disciplines resulting in a higher level of service to the project. We are also firm believers in the value of collaboration, and we view our clients, consultants, sub-contractors and vendors as partners and recognize the value they bring to each project.
