The Outlook Team

This is a team of many skill sets. Developer, Architect, Builder and Development Manager have all been involved from the beginning of the project. Importantly, the team has a very successful history of working together. This brings total confidence in the abilities of others, and empowers people to do their job well.

Associated parties such as DHC Consulting (structural engineers), D + H Steel (steel fabricators) and Holmes Fire all have established relationships with the principal contributors to the project. For the Builder, Architect and Structural Engineer this is their tenth project together.
