This is Chris Redgrave for Zions Bank Speaking on Business.
Company president Kenner Kingston says the goal at Architectural Nexus in Salt Lake City is to do anything they can to enhance human experience. This means a strong focus on sustainability in all their designs for their clients. They like to say what they do is regenerative or restorative design, meaning they leave something better than they found it. And they walk their talk since the Architectural Nexus facility on Parley's Way is Platinum LEED Certified.
Architectural Nexus is a multi-disciplinary architecture firm with a broad selection of specialists. What this means is they offer a wide range of services for their clients. They feature a landscape architecture in house, along with interior designers, medical planners, office and mixed use and partners that specialize in laboratories, cold-storage refrigeration, military, and healthcare. This often means Architectural Nexus is a one-stop shop for any architectural need a client may have, including interior finish and furnishing of the completed space.
They believe strongly that creating new architecture is creative and constructive by nature. However, the materials have to come from somewhere, so all designs take into account humanity and eco systems to figure out if they're making the finished space a better place. Their clients appreciate this focus found at Architectural Nexus.
Kenner says it's unusual in this line of work to have 20 principles in a 100-person firm, but that says a lot about who this company is and how they work together. The Architectural Nexus team has a mentality of abundance, sharing and collaboration.
Some of their top local clients include University Healthcare, Salt Lake County, Woodbury Corporation and Myriad Genetics, while nationally they take care of the Corps of Engineers and Sysco Foods. That's part of the reason the company will gross around $20 million in revenue this year. Kenner says their success is the product of conscientious planning and exceptional talent working hand-in-hand.
