What we do

Design For People is the core of BASE’s philosophy.

Compton Senior Center


“Design for People.” For us, this is defined as universal design – architecture that honors the client, the community, the people who will use the building, and the resources of planet earth. At BASE, we believe successful design is achieved through close collaboration with our clients. We know building design plays a strong role in conveying your mission and values.

We believe built environments should reflect context, history, cultures, communities, and the natural environment while incorporating advances in technology. From site assessment and conceptual studies through to construction documents, permitting and construction support, our team of architects has proven experience in creating buildings that become local landmarks. We provide a full range of architectural services from conceptual studies and construction documents, through to permitting and construction support.

Urban Design

From feasibility studies to full scale master planning, BASE works closely with our clients to analyze opportunities and challenges related to a site or space, and identify cost-effective, high-functioning solutions. Successful planning brings diverse groups together in collaborative work efforts, balancing critical thinking, analytical tools, and technology with economic vitality and community needs.

At BASE, we believe good urban design has the power to change lives, both as people interact with a site or space and across entire neighborhoods as a kick-start to building investment. Our work is informed by best practices across our network of markets and disciplines, including land use analysis, economic and retail impact assessments, parking studies and visual 3D simulations. We also specialize in community outreach to create plans that are supported by local residents, combining a precise technical approach and an inclusive participatory process.

At BASE we help our clients be proactive in achieving ADA compliance through the quick identification of barriers as well as simple, cost effective design and construction solutions for barrier removal. We have automated the entire process of documenting building and site conditions to create a digitized inventory of compliant and noncompliant conditions based on the applicable codes at the time a building or facility was built or remodeled.

We do this with the open source software we developed that allows any person the ability to survey a facility answering code based questions through a series of pull-down menus in the field on any tablet computer. At the conclusion of our ADA site survey, a summary of the Violations by Element is generated. These violations can be selected within the tablet, server or desktop unit to allow the viewer to obtain an explanation and see photo images of each violation at any time.

An example of our speed and accuracy is a door that has 28 code requirements, using our tool all 28 questions are answered in less than 2 minutes.

This enables our clients to prioritize ADA repairs, identify costs, and scheduling for remediation program. We enable our clients to show monthly or annual progress to the public that you are creating a barrier free environment.

Our ADA experts can work with any project team member providing them accurate and vital accessibility compliance information required for decision making. At BASE we have developed the total solution for you and your staff to manage ADA easily and comfortably throughout the life-cycle of its facilities. Call us and we will show you how we can help you get control of your ADA compliance requirements.

Accessibility and Inclusive Design

BASE specializes in design and construction solutions for American with Disabilities Act (ADA) compliance across all building types and facilities. BASE’s ADA experts work to ensure our clients’ properties meet current ADA compliance requirements, reducing the risk of costly litigation. Our full service ADA compliance team can provide our clients with site surveys, transition plans, cost estimates and construction remedies, including construction documents, permitting and construction support.

BASE uses proprietary software to complete site surveys and catalogue each compliance issue. Our focus on accessibility and inclusive design produces buildings and facilities that are inherently accessible to older people, people with disabilities, parents with strollers and those without disabilities. This is part of our philosophy and practice of Inclusive Design for all people, all walks of Life.
