ONE GLOBAL DESIGN – ANNUAL CONFERENCE
This past June, the ONE Global Design team gathered in Washington DC at the partner firm of FOX Architects for their annual conference. Partners Susan Steeves and Julie Campbell were in attendance to represent SSDG amongst the partners of some of the top architectural and interior design firms in North America.
The meeting was both a review of how far ONE Global Design has come since its inception as well as a look into the future of the network. Since it’s simple beginning in 2010, ONE has grown from two firms to 18 firms in 2015. This includes a network of 691 architectural and design professionals with total sales over 110 million. The remarkable growth that ONE has seen in the past five years has confirmed that there is a strong demand for a “global reach, personal touch” approach to projects,” said Partner Julie Campbell. “Clients receive the attention that’s the hallmark of small firms, backed by the depth and breadth of an international organization across 18 cities.
With 18 locations today and plans to expand into more North American and International markets on the horizon, ONE has their eyes set on expanding their reach by partnering with alliance firms to better serve their National Clients. Historically, national and international corporations with a need for interior design services in different cities had two options: Hire different small firms in each market and oversee multiple individual projects, or go with one large firm with the resources but limited local insight, talent and accountability. ONE Global Design created a new solution for corporate clients who retain interiors services and have a need for multiple projects across several markets – the unique opportunity to tap into the knowledge, experience, and local expertise of 18 firms each considered best-in-class in their respective markets.
