Global Collaboration 全球协作

Working through Global Perspectives
SBA currently operates on three continents. With headquarters in Boston, Massachusetts, and a regional office in Enfield, Connecticut, U.S.A., we maintain affiliated international offices in London, England; Guangzhou, China; and Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada.
以全球视野开展工作
美国SBA 建筑设计有限公司(以下简称“SBA”)目前在三大洲开展运营。公司总部位于美国马萨诸塞州波士顿,并在美国康涅狄格州恩菲尔德设有区域办公室;此外,还在英国伦敦、中国广州和加拿大不列颠哥伦比亚省温哥华设有国际分支机构。
 
With projects and people active across the globe on a daily basis, SBA remains open virtually 24 hours a day. By maximizing our collaboration among these offices, we support our clients’ design needs and documentation schedules with quick responses and results. In today’s evolving global economy, our practice embraces the diverse perspectives that each of our offices offers, creating a truly integrated professional outlook.
由于公司项目和员工遍及全球各地,SBA几乎1天24小时处于工作状态。通过最大限度地强化全球各办事处之间的协作,我们可以快速回应客户的设计需求和文档编制计划,并提交成果。在当今不断变化的全球经济中,我们的专业实践融合了每个办事处所特有的多样化视角,形成了真正一体化的专业视野。
 
Our range of expertise has also expanded as a result of our international work. For example, our sustainable design initiatives have benefited from London’s rich history in sustainable practices that have long been part of mainstream design in British architecture. Meanwhile, our China office has allowed us to expand our aesthetic and technological thinking through mass-scale urban planning ventures.
随着国际业务的拓展,SBA的专业范围也随之扩大。例如,我们的可持续设计计划已得益于伦敦在可持续性设计方面所拥有的悠久历史。长期以来,可持续设计一直是英国建筑的主流设计方法。同时,我们在中国的分支机构通过大规模的城市规划活动,拓展了我们的审美和技术思维。
Our collaborative mission also manifests as joint ventures and as consulting work teaming with local firms. Our in-house planning division, Sterling Planning Alliance, works with clients worldwide, and nearly forty percent of their projects have involved coordinating with design firms in the U.S., U.K., and beyond. Our firm-wide dedication to partnering and teamwork is what has made SBA into exceptional leaders, collaborators, and consultants.  
我们的协同工作方式也体现为开设合资企业、以及与当地设计事务所合作开展咨询业务。我们的内部规划部门—斯特林规划联盟—与全球范围内的客户开展合作,而其将近40%的项目已涉及与美国、英国和其他国家的设计事务所的合作。正因为整个公司致力于开展合作,重视团队工作,SBA才成为业界的杰出的领跑者、协调者和顾问。
