From your initial dreams through to the opening of your building, Gustin Design Services provide everything for your design needs.

  • Site Evaluation – We provide a comprehensive analysis to examine the site conditions, confirm utilities, review your lease, complete feasibility studies and report our findings in a direct and clear way.

  • Code Research – We review the laws, codes, and regulations applicable to the project to provide recommendations.  Ensuring your existing space or new building adheres to the requirements set forth by the authority having jurisdiction.

  • Schematic Design – We will work with you to develop a design that is functional, cost-efficient and designed specifically to your vision and values.

  • Permit and Construction Documents – Permit and construction documents are documents needed for the construction permits and bids. We will assist you in determining the best allocation of responsibility for filing documents required for the approval of the authorities having jurisdiction over the project. Typically, these documents include architectural, civil, structural, mechanical, electrical, and plumbing drawings needed to gain permits from the building, fire, and planning departments.

Sustainable Design

The goal of Gustin Design Services is to create healthier, more productive, and more efficient places to live, work, shop, and play.  We can guide you in the sustainable design process within a project up to and including the Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) certification.

With a focus on reduced first-cost, lifecycle energy, and operating costs; we promote the health and wellness of all phases of your project. Our process derives from a holistic economical view that relates to the ecological concerns of the lifespan of your project.


The materials, colors, and finishes of your building tell the visual story of your project.  By using unique forms, light, colors, aesthetics, and structures, we work to express your brand and vision as a way that will elevate the interior environment of your project. Our integrated approach encompasses every aspect of the interior environment, beginning with your brand, merchandising and space planning. By concentrating on the maintenance, costs, sustainability, and specifications of the project we deliver interior performance for higher productivity, greater creativity and innovation, and increased patronage or sales.

Master Planning

Developments must be planned in a context that determines the goals and aspirations of a larger community.  Public policies on transportation, utilities, land use, recreation, and housing determine the feasibility and path of developments which encompass large geographical areas, a broad range of topics, and cover a long-term time horizon. Beginning with initial master planning concepts and ending with final implementation, we work with our clients as partners to create efficient places that are memorable and maximize revenue for our clients. By considering the community, customers, mix of tenants, and sustainable solutions we can layout the spaces that create your vision. Understanding that the space outside of the building is as important as the individual projects themselves.
