Areas of Expertise
The success of any museum, government building, academic institution or public plaza relies on sensitive design and the balancing of security and free access, timeless beauty and functionality.
ABACUS delivers program-driven, life-cycle solutions that reflect constant collaboration with our clients. Our projects foster fluid, seamless operations that result from our own interwoven engineering, planning, technology and architecture services.
Whether we are preserving an historic building or designing new, state-of-the-art facilities, our civic and public teams deliver sustainable environments that serve their users, and their communities, today and well into the future.
Today's successful Educational design goes far beyond architecture to embrace the learning experience. Staying competitive in the Educational Sector means more than providing a place to teach and learn. It means surpassing expectations and producing environments that are conducive to the educational experience and predicting their needs at every level of detail.
To reach these goals, ABACUS offers a complete package of expertise and creativity, from architecture and engineering to environmental spaces. We have worked with public and private institutions delivering classroom, administrative and sports facilities.
Residential development has changed dramatically from the days of sprawl and suburban growth. Today's new and revitalized communities are embracing connections, sustainability, and smart growth principles. Homes in Puerto Rico are increasingly being leased or sold for their proximity to retail, transit and workplace hubs, and the links they have to their environments and other people.
At ABACUS, we design high-density projects, urban apartments, as well as single dwellings. By offering a blend of planning, architecture, engineering and other integrated services, we are helping to reinvigorate both the suburbs and the urban core, enriching them with careful details and a thoughtful balance of commercial and residential environments.
Our comprehensive design approach, results in buildings that celebrate their connection to place, culture, and tradition; buildings that are expressive of both the programmatic needs and the highest aspirations of our clients.
Retail + Mixed-Use Development
Market-driven, pedestrian-oriented, and community focus are three components of ABACUS mixed-use and retail projects. Each project responds to program and facility requirements, site opportunities and local economics to assist developers in achieving maximum investment return. Through imaginative planning and architectural designs that include retail, office, residential, hotel, entertainment, and civic uses linked by street and urban spaces, a sense of place is created.
Our commercial projects respond to user needs for special efficiency, future flexibility, and developing technologies, as well as a need for tenant amenities and community spaces to support contemporary working lifestyle. The architecture of each building is designed to creatively meet development requirements and provide a strong sense of identity.
From the initial client meeting through occupancy, ABACUS' specialists in programming, space planning and interior design work with our clients to identify their design goals, schedule requirements and budgetary parameters, and develop a design that is sensitive to the individual considerations and needs.
