Philosophy

We're noted for cultivating and maintaining good working relationships with clients.

As Alaska community builders, Bettisworth North helps clients design community places that improve Alaskans' lives. We are noted for cultivating and maintaining excellent working relationships with our clients by providing:

  • Architectural vision that supports your community goals
  • Collaborative, integrative design to develop holistic solutions
  • Thorough analysis and sustainable design to create energy efficient results

We believe that successful projects grow from an understanding of the fundamental nature of the project vision, mission, and program; the environmental and community context; and from the specific relationship between these components that helps to uniquely define each project. It is this approach that ensures the most successful, appropriate solution to meet immediate and future needs of our clients and users.

We cultivate excellent working relationships by collaborating internally and with our clients, stakeholders, subconsultants, and construction contractors. This reputation is founded on a philosophy of professional service, which creates an eagerness to explore creative options where both clients and users are part of the planning and design team. Our philosophy provides a design process, which explores the full range of possible solutions and is thorough in its evaluations.

We're deeply committed to sustainable design, which is an integral part of our philosophy. Bettisworth North has assumed a leadership role in bringing environmentally conscious design capabilities to Alaska. Our entire staff has received training on green design, and we are a member of the United States Green Building Council.
