FGM exists to enhance communities by creating quality environments.
This core purpose expressly defines why we practice and implies how we practice. We strive to produce architecture that adds positively to a community. We do so through collaboration and continuous exploration and education.
FGM projects are central to communities. Sometimes our employees and their families benefit directly from the buildings we have designed, but we always feel an obligation to do our best. We design every school as if our children were learning there, every police and fire facility as if they supported the first responders who protect our families and every village hall as if it were the symbol of the civic life we share with our own neighbors. We are proud to support the many FGM employees who volunteer their time and expertise to many worthwhile endeavors.
Our people are our most valuable resource; their varied backgrounds broaden our vision. We balance experience with energy and expertise with enthusiasm to continually educate each other in trends and techniques. FGM is an employee-owned firm, and our people—each and every one—are highly invested in making FGM the best it can be.
Collaboration takes place with our clients and among our staff at all levels. We collaborate with our clients to learn their goals and parameters, so we may deliver a project that works for them. We collaborate, too, within FGM to find project solutions and to shape the firm from a shared vision.
