Every project we create has something in common: a flexible approach that results in meaningful, life-enhancing buildings. Through prefabricated designs, minimal waste and impeccable attention-to-detail, we align our structures with the people, businesses and communities that inhabit them.


Our team thrives on open, connected communication with you. Because, at Next, we always put our clients at the forefront of each project. From our emergent technology to our unconventional tools, we uncover simple, practical and cost-effective solutions to complex building problems.

We’re proud to harness technology as a communication tool amongst our team, clients and partners. Working with cloud-based computing models in a shared virtual space, you’ll experience and contribute to our digital designs throughout the entire project.

The best architectural designs set out the right materials for the building’s purpose, people and land. From quantities and scopes of work to site constraints and scheduling implications, our solutions resolve many of the traditional issues that impact construction—before we even begin building. Our pragmatic design approach, combined with our alternative compensation methods, adapt your project to the costs, while minimizing budget and schedule risks.


It’s not enough to produce great data—we also visualize and present our knowledge in powerful ways. By immersing you and our team in our technology, while working where our buildings are, we keep the right people connected to the right information, every step of the way. Our smart, efficient data management process delivers superior building outcomes, diminishing errors, waste and rework.


We invest careful effort and resources in understanding our clients. Inspired by your project’s purpose, we build with imagination, sensitivity and a deep respect for budgets and timelines.

From inception to completion, our entire team is invested in all aspects of your project—design, production and contracts. Often, our team members will assume a leadership role at different times of a project based on their skill and experience. Throughout the project, we bring a collective memory and knowledge base, while also welcoming new solutions and ideas at any time, from any team member.
