Inaugural Year: 1973
What do you get when you put architects, engineers, and interior designers in one room? The beginning of By Design.
SFCS began working on its third senior living project. What's the big deal, right? Well, this was a unique undertaking compared to any other project this firm had done before. In fact, it was a Life Plan Community, the first one in the country.
As demand for its senior living design services increased, SFCS closed it's offices for a two-day, on-site workshop to better serve it's clients and their needs. The firm understood that to be specialists in seniors design, its staff needed to be experts. During these workshops, SFCS enlisted the help of nationally-renowned gerontologists and other industry experts to help educate its staff on the aging process and the design sensitivities for seniors.
