INTERIOR DESIGN

    With both new projects and interior renovations, we want to make your project a cohesive, unified whole. It must be comfortable and meet the needs of your day-to-day operations. These principles are at the heart of our interior design philosophy and guarantee that not only will your building look great on the outside, but the spaces within will be equally enticing.

VISUALIZATION

    Thrasher specializes in creating architectural and environmental virtual reality models. From single rendered images, to animated fly-throughs, to complete 360 degree interior environments, this visualization allows one to move around and study proposed improvements from any angle. Construction can be expensive; the need for a thorough understanding of a design solution is important. Our visualization service is a valuable tool for clients, providing the opportunity to review and refine a proposed design before ground is broken.

SUSTAINABILITY

    Thrasher has five LEED Accredited Professionals on staff, and has incorporated a broadening spectrum of sustainable design strategies as part of our standard design approach. Green building practices greatly reduce the negative environmental impact of the construction process, and green design provides more “livable” buildings with healthier, more productive environments and lower building maintenance and operating costs. Achieving a LEED certification for a structure is an involved process that requires professional assistance and proper planning from the very beginning of a project. Consideration of the Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design philosophy is integral to our design and planning process.
