Methodology

At Oculus, our design methodology stems specifically from our design philosophy and is inseparable from how we work with our clients. We start by understanding the nature of the assignment and determining what the client's purposes, goals, and aspirations are.

This initial data and information gathering stage serves as the foundation of all future work to come, shapes the design team’s vision regarding the overall nature of the solution, and guides it along the way.

We strongly believe that fact-based logic is behind all primary projects, shaping decisions, and that all key decisions are made jointly. While we understand that we are the creative inventors and idea generators in this process, we are committed to giving our clients real choice and decision-making involvement as opposed to lip service; the client is, after all, the most important member of the design team. More often than not clients are given alternative ideas from which to choose or comment; we believe that a great idea or concept should never become so sacred that it cannot be improved upon.

We are absolutely committed to the notion that better understanding, awareness, and information lead to better decisions and more satisfied clients.

This ideology was and continues to be a major contributor to our early and robust adoption of advanced technology design tools such as Building Information Modeling (BIM). BIM creates data within the models that we regularly use to analyze systematically various aspects of our projects in ways not possible through other design methodologies.

Having the best tools to assist our designers and our clients document and fully understand the nature of our projects allows us to focus our energies on the important decisions within the proper context. The most noticeable aspect of this very different way of working is that our clients are much more aware and better informed throughout the process and are more informed contributors.

Design = Design + Document + Implement + Follow
Our design methodology, the deployment of BIM, the staff we hire for our team, and everything we do are all about creating the absolute best solutions/projects for our clients. In the end, it is the project or solution, not just a great idea, by which we a judged.
