Our Expertise

At CORE Planning, our number one priority is helping you achieve your ideal facility. We don’t design or build the buildings themselves, rather we serve as project managers, coaches, translators, and, on occasion, psychiatrists, as you navigate the waters of facility planning.

Our background in architecture, engineering andconstruction means we can speak the language. We know the right questions toask, the right partners to get involved, and what it’s realistically going totake to get the job done. And done well.
