how we work

We work closely with our clients to interpret their vision and translate that into a design concept to be developed by the JAI team. Once a concept is approved by the owner and / or the brand, the team works diligently with architects, engineers and other consultants to create the documents required to turn the vision into a tangible product while following the project’s guidelines, budget and schedule through completion.

 

 

our passion

While creating a unique and impressive space is the ultimate goal, developing an emotional connection for the guest within the space is critical. The relationships we form throughout the design process are just as rewarding to us as our finished product. I believe hospitality has always been my passion because our designs reach so many people and we are able to make a difference in their journey even if just for a brief period.
