Listening intently to our clients is our best strategy
At RLF, we believe in the value of listening – carefully, thoughtfully – to our client’s vision. But we don’t stop there. We want to learn who our clients are, not just what they need. We do our homework – research, ask questions and clarify – because we know that understanding our clients thoroughly is the key to helping them succeed.
RLF’s wise engineering decisions provide value throughout the building life cycle
What makes RLF’s engineering services different? Our engineers take pride in designing mechanical spaces that provide unexpected value for general contractors, facility operators and owners. And because RLF is an integrated design firm, all our disciplines hold shared values and work in a collaborative environment that prioritizes these spaces as essential elements of smart design, not afterthoughts to be inserted into already-designed spaces.
Our in-depth knowledge results in beautiful, tightly coordinated and consistent designs
Why does RLF take pride in the quality of our interior design services? At RLF, interior design goes well beyond selecting finishes. Our interior designers are experts in all aspects of their discipline. With a comprehensive knowledge of codes, they write specifications for signage and furniture as well as for finishes, unlike many interior design groups that subcontract these tasks out. Our interior designers are also healthcare design experts. In addition to a focus on material performance and longevity, they have a keen understanding of the importance of infection control when designing for occupant health, safety and welfare.

Art and religion are arguably about transcendence – the ability of physical form or ritual to evoke the essence of something more and bolster the human spirit. Other cultural spaces offer a similar potential – the ability to connect individuals in a common activity that elevates each individual and the group as a whole. RLF’s designers seek to provide the perfect environment for the wonder of these possibilities to become manifest and flourish.
