We work with retailers to determine the essence of their brand and design innovative environments that capture that brand’s character. Bergmann’s portfolio of retail and commercial work includes a diverse representation of architectural styles, each selected to meet the unique needs of the client. Bergmann professionals enable our clients to develop a unique expression in a competitive landscape. Our designs are both eye catching and award winning.

Bergmann professionals will take an entire program from concept through the environmental impact study process and permits, financing and funding, design, procurement and construction, start-up and operations. Our approach begins by establishing an efficient, client-specific project management and tracking system that can effectively communicate a project’s status to all project stakeholders and team members. Throughout the project’s life-cycle, we apply client-tailored risk assessment procedures and documentation that allow design and construction to proceed in an innovative, reliable and cost-effective manner without compromising quality or program requirements.

Bergmann engineers are some of the most knowledgeable and trusted professionals in their respective specialties. From our building structural engineering specialists to our M/E/P (mechanical, electrical and plumbing) experts, Bergmann is prepared to deliver on every aspect of a retail project. Bergmann professionals also understand the need for cost effective energy solutions that balance economic, social and environmental considerations.

As a full-service, multi-disciplinary design firm, Bergmann is able to seamlessly develop, implement and promote collaborative strategies that protect natural habitats and encourage urban redevelopment. We continually investigate the adaptive reuse of existing structures, innovative energy efficient design practices, and commissioning services for new and existing building systems. Bergmann professionals believe in creating a more sustainable world by design.

Bergmann architects, engineers and planners are involved in the creation or restoration of a site from initial project feasibility to final engineering/design. We assist in processing applicable town, county, and state approvals for site plans and typically work as a liaison between the client and the local planning / zoning boards. During and after the site plan approval process, we work with the various regulatory agencies to ensure that the final set of plans receive approval. We routinely prepare construction documents for improvements to roads, intersections, and signals to mitigate impacts of proposed development.
