We are trained educational planners, designers, and engineers, and we foster continual learning by partnering with communities and educational institutions to live out their purpose and vision through successful planning and building campaigns.
As a learning organization structured for ideation, innovation, and sharing of knowledge, GMB’s hubs of experts in Grand Rapids, Holland, and Royal Oak, Michigan, and Indianapolis, Indiana, design and engineer projects throughout North America.
A core GMB value is providing opportunities for our employees to grow in their knowledge of the profession. As we have experienced a move to a multi-generational demographic of our workforce, we have focused extensively on the transferring of knowledge between the generations, investing in the education and development of our staff, and building our pipeline of future professionals.
Our desire for continual learning requires imagination, curiosity, and creativity. We seek this growth for diversity of perspective and ideas. Only by seeking this growth will we be able to provide our clients and communities with concepts, ideas, spaces, and places that embody their past and future.
We believe in the idea of perpetual giving. Much like the saying, “If you teach a person to fish…” we believe that if we give to our clients, they will give to the student, who will give to the world. Only through this approach can we achieve our vision “create opportunity for all”.
