Our Story

Performa Creating High Performance Environment

In thriving organizations the term “Environment” defines the entirety of their competitive existence – reaching far beyond the physical space they occupy. Performa’s clients are high achievement, driven organizations stretching themselves each and every day to master what makes and keeps them effective and competitive. They discern between partners who add value to their development from those which simply consume their resources.

This condition translates into our purpose: to serve our clients with an unmatched sense of responsibility, to understand and invest our clients’ resources as if they were our own.

Design Philosophy

Performa – a derivative of “Performance”; the execution of an action; something accomplished: DEED, FEAT; the fulfillment of a claim or promise.

In most organizational settings, “environment” has traditionally referred to structures, the “places” where work is performed. But at Performa, they are so much more.

When we began as a small, tight-knit group of architects and engineers almost twenty years ago, we discerned a void in our industry. We found that few of our peers were looking beyond technical expertise to connect the capital asset decisions of their clients to their business strategy. Our clients are in need of practical solutions to their business challenges.  More than a “place,” they’re seeking high-performance, high-achievement environments, those that truly integrate the people that live, learn or work there and the processes they experience.

We have found these conditions to still exist today. The challenges our clients now face are even larger and more complex, which serves to further leverage our approach beyond anything we had imagined when we launched Performa. We are committed to this approach.

This philosophy guides our every action and serves as our foundation for: Creating High Performance Environments®.
