Who We Are

We’re a midsized team that specializes in making impactful contributions to our built environment. Together we have experience in commercial and residential development, design and construction. We’re nimble, highly connected and organized. We’re passionate about results and seek like-minded individuals and partners who value going the extra mile.

Metric Values

We aim to have an authentic impact on how and what we build,

by focusing on WHY we build.

Collaboration

This is more than a buzzword, it’s an aspirational principle.  Our goal is to create genuine collaboration that results in a common definition of success. A type of synergy that defies formal negotiations and instills mutual respect and consideration.

Transparency

Our commitment to fully transparent practices is our way of developing trust with our clients and amongst our team. Through every phase of a project, our dedication to transparency ensures that we are maintaining our highest standards and always operating in our client’s best interest.

Community

It’s important to be good at what we do – and it’s equally important to do good with what we do. We aspire to be an enduring resource for the communities we impact. We strive to be approachable and engaging in an industry that can seem intimidating and mystifying. 

Adaptability

The built environment and methods that shape it are always changing. At Metric, we have an open minded and value driven process that is designed to adapt accordingly. We are constantly evolving, just like the places and spaces that we work on

Relationships

Human capital is our most valuable asset – internally and externally. Great projects begin with great people. At Metric, our measure of success is fostering meaningful work and meaningful relationships.
