JPHES MISSION STATEMENT
LISTENING is the first step of what we do in any facet. Whether it’s a team member expressing a new idea or learning what a client’s needs are – it’s our job to open our ears. We utilize the tactic of being “slow to speak” to ensure we’ve taken the time to fully hear someone before we provide feedback. Although we’re always excited to share a solution, we ensure we take the time to make sure we provide the best and most impactful solution.
COLLABORATION is naturally what comes next. We treat anyone a part of the collaboration process as if they are a part of our internal team including clients and other disciplines. The approach is how do we all work together to accomplish the needs of our client. This happens through meetings, design reviews, quick phones calls, site visits, and more.
DESIGN is what we do. After we have all the pieces of the puzzle from listening and collaborating, we know what the goal is. We do the research and we put it on paper. Being a small firm allows us a unique flexibility that can be lost in larger firms. We step away from the adages of “if it isn’t broken, don’t fix it” and “because that’s the way things have always been done”. We actively look for unique solutions that meet our clients’ needs and budget.
DELIVER is just what is should be – on time and complete. Additionally, we always lend ourselves to answer questions after the project is complete. We take pride in our work and if something isn’t working to expectation, we’re there.
Our team is strongly committed
Joseph P. Harvey, PE
At the core of our success is a reverberation of our Mission Statement actualized by our incredible team of professionals who “lead” with hard work and technology, “inspire” multidiscipline design teams to collaborate, and “create” client solutions that exceed their expectations.
