glaserworks is a group of people with common values but diverse skills and experiences. We all revel in collaboration with clients, colleagues and consultants. We all like to build. If our buildings serve worthwhile purposes, somehow enrich the users, satisfy our clients' aspirations and constraints, we are satisfied.
Some of us enjoy conceptualization and design. Others happily immerse themselves in the details of a building, the description of how to build it or the actual construction. Others still like to facilitate the overall process of design and construction, orchestrating the team of people required to see a project completed. Different skills, same goals. We're complimentary. It's little surprise that we've come together at glaserworks.

This State History Museum will be expanded over a planned expansion program to increase its collections and research capacity. Our client noted, "When appropriate, you expanded our horizons and when needed, you helped us focus on the important issues. And you accomplished that while working within a set of tight constraints, both in terms of space needs and resources available. What impressed me most was your ability to listen to a variety of points of view from our staff, committee and Board, assimilate them, and present us with sensible alternatives that took into account often disparate points of view."
