BUILT ON TRUST. BUILT FOR LIFE
Our work is a lifestyle at QA+M – it’s who we are – not just what we do.
is another day we deeply connect to our purpose. Our principals and staff work side-by-side as equals, so we are a diverse, seamless, collaborative One-Team Studio. We produce responsive, innovative, sustainable designs that work because they set up our clients for success, and bring out the best of life.
The best parts of QA+M
We love what we do and love working with each other. QA+M is our creative home and haven, where we receive the resources and freedom to evolve into the best version of what we are striving to become.
We remain innovative because we are perpetual learners, always seeking new ways to develop the next better solution. Encouraged by our leadership to be entrepreneurial, we stretch beyond our boundaries, and produce designs that deliver the greatest value that our clients deserve. That is our mission in action every day.
We are confident, eager, invested, and driven and continually demand more from ourselves. Our leaders are seasoned professionals, open to exploration, and teach by example. Through them we learn how to embody the tenets of success. We are proud to be part of QA+M. We work hard, play fair, and believe that when we all pull together, we are –without a doubt–unstoppable.
Growing in our Studio
Learning and growth happens every day at QA+M. From numerous opportunities for real-time mentoring and lunch-and-learn sessions in our studio, to attending industry conferences and vendor field trips, we are continually sharpening our skills and having fun doing it.
What’s more, rather than being hired to merely fill a position, our leaders hire based on drive and talent, and then encourage us to do what we love and bring our full passion to everything we create.
In fact, QA+M employees get the unique chance to take full ownership of a project from start to finish. From having a voice in client conversations, to learning about and participating in all the project’s phases including design, production, and construction administration, there is no better way to grow into a respected professional and be equipped to own your future.
Giving to our Communities
One of the things we love most is to use our hearts and hands to help families in our community. From installing flooring, staining porches, to painting trim and ceilings and more, we are proud to volunteer for Hartford Area Habitat for Humanity. In addition to building skills, we also volunteer our architecture services to design homes that support families’ needs. Everyone deserves a home. We’re thrilled to help make that happen.
What’s more, QA+M supports whatever matters most to our team. We encourage and often will fund their engagement in community activities, charity work, or fundraising events. We stand behind our team’s desire to make a difference in our community, and the world.
