Gillespie & Steel
Gillespie & Steel Associates Ltd. is a Caribbean company offering full Architectural Services, Interior Design Services, Urban Planning and Project Management Services to our clients throughout the Eastern Caribbean and beyond.
Our approach to design places considerable emphasis on problem solving in the Caribbean context, producing solutions that work well within the climatic, financial and technical constraints of the region. We have made studies of traditional Island Architecture and from this wealth of background information, have been able to develop the use of traditional design elements in a contemporary way to produce an updated Caribbean Architectural style.
Our well qualified, experienced, and technical personnel are committed to providing a high standard of service through design quality, attention to detail and cost control, which results in the successful completion of projects on program and within budget.
We offer full Architectural Design, Interior Design, Planning and Project Management services that can be tailored to suit the specific requirements of the client. Full services range from Urban Planning and Feasibility Studies to Concept Design, Design Development, Production Information, Site Inspection, Contract Administration, and Design Team management.
We embrace technology at every stage of a project utilizing current version software to produce 3D project modeling, full colour presentation drawings, detailed design, working drawings and specifications in BIM workflows with downstream IFC support.
We are cognizant of the deteriorating global environment and apply the principles of Green Design to our Architecture and Design projects. The Green Building Design Movement offers an unprecedented opportunity to respond to the many environmental challenges of our time including the dependence on non-sustainable energy sources. As policy, we design buildings that make efficient use of tropical design principles for energy conservation.
Green Building Design principles also address potential negative environmental impacts of a development project including the production of atmospheric pollutants, waste water, solid waste, traffic congestion, and the like, whilst promoting positive development considerations in the selection of sustainable sites, the use of renewable materials, water management, indoor environmental quality, pedestrian priority, native species landscaping, and regional business support.
