The City of Houston Permitting center was a successful collaborate effort from day one. Very early on, Studio RED had a client who was committed to working with us, and came to the table with a good idea of what they wanted. We met with the City of Houston weekly to discuss details from numbers to construction, sustainability models and civic art.
Andrew Icken, City of Houston Chief Development Officer, wrote a letter of support for Studio RED as a submission for an Engineering News Record award . In it, he acknowledges the facets of the project that our design team felt had worked so well.
