Welcome to the new rform blog – Substantial Performance


“You employ stone, wood and concrete, and with these materials you build houses and palaces. That is construction. Ingenuity is at work. But suddenly you touch my heart, you do me good, I am happy and I say: “This is beautiful.” That is Architecture. Art enters in.” Le Corbusier

Welcome to the new rform blog – Substantial Performance!  We named it Substantial Performance because we believe that it is one of the most important finish lines that we all race towards in the construction of any project. However when many first started their careers as Architects did everyone realize there was such a thing?

It might have been all of those Brady Bunch re-runs that we watched as kids,  where we first became interested in Architecture (I loved those open tread stairs off the living room), or reading books on famous Architects like LeCorbusier  where it seemed life as an Architect only consisted of designing and making  pilgrimages to the Cathedrals of Europe, Museums, or any significant work of Architecture. So eventually we make the career decision,  go to Architecture School, get registered and begin to work as an Architect.
