Philosophy

Our clients expect that we possess exceptional design and engineering skill combined with flawless execution as the price of entry.

None of our clients wake up one morning and suddenly decide to construct a building. Rather, every one of our clients is striving to advance some form of step-change in their own organizations. We need to understand the degree to which our clients are taking their own leap of faith and the risks they are confronting in doing so.

To that end, our clients expect Performa to know as much as is practical about the strategic objectives behind their capital endeavors. Only then can we also help our clients advance their organizations’ facility initiatives. For Performa, delivering on our clients’ strategic advancement is simply an imperative.

And that’s why our clients invite us back time and time again. Some for over 25 years.

—Jeff Kanzelberger, CEO and founder.

Performa began as a small, tight-knit group of architects and engineers. In 1995, 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 and high-achievement environments. These are environments that truly integrate the people who 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 Superior Performing Environments™
