Pittsburgh Architecture Firms

The Triple Bottom Line.

Every organization uses human and eco capital to develop technical capital. At AE Works, we seek to create all three at the same time. This methodology is rooted in a belief that the results of our efforts should do the same for our Clients. Great architecture is technical, human, and ecologically conscious. How we work is synonymous with what we produce.

The Triple Bottom Line (TBL)

AE Works utilizes a TBL business model to provide a structure with explicit intentions to serve why we exist as a company. Development and design of organizational structure, policies, and procedures reflect the need for constant innovation and adaptation to a changing world.

To strengthen our TBL and reason for existing, AE Works became a certified a B Corporation.  Leading a global movement to redefine success in business, Certified B Corporations are a new kind of company with a positive vision of a better way to do business.  As a Certified B Corporation, AE Works voluntarily meets a higher standard of accountability, transparency and social and environmental performance.

The B Corp certification provides a metric-based framework to help in the continued evolution of AE Works and our aspiration to create the world that we envision.  Becoming a B Corp and maintaining that status challenges us to be the company we want to be.  AE Works’ full B Impact Report is available here: http://www.bcorporation.net/community/ae-works-ltd.

Client Experience

The methodology we choose for our Client experience unlocks the potential in the opportunity our Clients present us.  Our Client experience is an iterative process constantly seeking the best solutions possible.  

The Client experience is interactive, meaning we are listening, respecting, visualizing, and challenging in real time to produce meaningful engagement and make best use of our Client’s time and money.  The experience is also iterative, meaning the experience is not one and done.  We seek to have the Client experience a long term relationship evidenced by repeat work.
