What Does Technical Excellence Mean?
Entuitive’s Commitment to Technical Excellence is centered on our One Company culture. Providing our team members have access to the same knowledge, expertise, and resources ensures we consistently deliver the highest quality projects for our clients across all our offices, no matter the challenges of the project, and even during unprecedented times such as these.
Our four pillars of technical excellence, our Knowledge Centres, Quality Assurance program, Quality Control process, and Technical Enrichment through Learning, are a rigorous set of standards we apply to ourselves because we know we are better together. Each of our projects is supported by our collective expertise, allowing us to deliver the highest quality projects, create economical designs, and reduce construction costs for our clients.

Below, we hear from a few of the members of our Technical Board about their thoughts on technical excellence and why we set these standards for ourselves.
Efficiency in Project Delivery & Structural Systems
Our commitment to our four pillars of technical excellence ensure our project delivery process is efficient and that our designs are optimized to client and stakeholder needs.
“The quality and efficiency of project delivery documentation is contingent upon the technical support built into the delivery system. Project work supported by in-house technical support leads to efficient structural systems culminating in sharp and economical designs.
“Entuitive technical excellence encompasses the full spectrum of the design life of a project. The projects are supported by the design support systems developed by the Technical Committee, overseen by the Production Process Group, and finally subjected to a thorough QA process implemented by the Quality Control Committee.
“This well-structured technical excellence process covers all aspects of design and all disciplines including Building and Bridge structures, Building Envelope services, Construction Engineering, Restoration, Modular Engineering, and other disciplines.”
–Agha Hasan, Principal
Putting Innovative Thinking Front & Centre
It also means building innovation and creative thinking into our day-to-day work in order to deliver the best to our clients.
“For me, technical excellence is all about how we walk the talk. It’s easy to sell the finished product – the drawings, reports, 3D models, or even the physical building or structure. But there is such brilliant innovation and thinking behind the scenes in everything we do, such as custom tools, unique processes, and work flows we’ve developed. That’s how we maintain the highest standards of quality while maintaining efficiency.”
–Ian Trudeau, Associate
Ensuring Collaboration & Sustainability
Our pillars enable us to engage in deep collaboration, which result in sophisticated and sustainable designs. This mindset, manifested in our process, has tangible results.
“In the recent years, Entuitive have come to be recognised amongst the engineering and architectural fraternity as an innovative practice providing elegant design solutions. We pride ourselves on providing practical and sophisticated solutions to diverse projects in construction, architecture, and art, particularly on technically challenging, prominent, or socially valuable projects.
“We view close collaboration between the disciplines as essential to the design process and are enthusiastic supporters of cross-fertilisation between all design fields. Such a philosophy has quickly proved successful and projects by our engineers that demonstrate this thinking have recently won major architectural and industry awards.
“Our approach leads to naturally sustainable solutions involving efficient use of materials and we have a history of making use of local materials and craftsmanship where possible.”
–Sanja Bunčić, Associate
Strengthening Our Expertise & Ethos
Finally, it’s a process that allows our team to continually be better tomorrow than we were today, and it’s founded on our One Company culture, so that when one of us improves, we all improve.
“One of Entuitive‘s engines is fuelled by our drive to continuously and collectively strengthen and expand our technical excellence. We do so by encouraging internal and external professional development and just as important sharing the knowledge gained across the company. One Company is our ethos and we live and breathe it when we deliver great work for great clients.”
–Ian Washbrook, Senior Associate
This commitment to our technical project delivery process, to our four pillars, and to our One Company culture allowed us to remain resilient during this pandemic and continue serving our clients and meeting their needs. By continually striving for the best, we bring our best to you.
