Bancroft is here to help craft your vision and build your future.

Shape the Future With Precision Through Our Architectural Design Services

At Bancroft Architects + Engineers, we understand that the foundation of every successful project begins with a well-thought-out master plan. Our expertise in architectural master planning has made us the preferred choice for renowned public, private, and government clients.

Master planning is the blueprint for the future, guiding your project from concept to realization. Bancroft’s team of seasoned architects and engineers brings decades of combined experience to the table, ensuring your vision aligns with strategic objectives. We’ve successfully undertaken projects ranging from $25,000 to $50 million, demonstrating our capability to handle diverse scales and complexities.

Assess Current Needs and Future Goals

Our master planning process begins with a comprehensive assessment of your current facilities and operations. We collaborate closely with your team to identify challenges, opportunities, and long-term objectives. Whether you’re in the healthcare, commercial, or government sectors, we work hand-in-hand to understand your needs and build a master plan that aligns with your goals.

Prioritize for Optimal Results

One of the key aspects of master planning is prioritization. We help you identify what’s essential and what can wait. By carefully evaluating the critical elements of your project, we ensure that resources are allocated efficiently and that you achieve the most impactful results within your budget constraints.

Future Proof for Growth

Change is constant, and your master plan should be flexible enough to accommodate future growth. Bancroft excels in designing master plans that are adaptable and scalable. We consider potential expansions, technological advancements, and evolving needs to future-proof your project, saving you time and resources down the road.

Keep Your Building Operating While We Renovate

Bancroft’s architectural team has extensive experience designing phased renovations for occupied buildings that operate 24/7. We know how to plan construction with minimal interruption to your business or facility. Our detailed phasing plans ensure your space remains functional while we complete upgrades.

Approach Phasing Plan Construction With Confidence

Bancroft Construction takes a thoughtful approach to phasing and sequencing construction projects. We work closely with clients to develop a detailed phasing plan that minimizes disruption to ongoing operations and ensures the safety of occupants, visitors, and workers.

Our project managers coordinate closely with owners and end users to schedule noisy or dusty activities during off-hours. We sequence the work logically to maximize efficiency while maintaining access and functionality in adjacent spaces.

We have extensive experience with phased healthcare, education, corporate, and civic projects, allowing us to keep facilities open and operational throughout construction. Our focus on safety, communication, and strategic scheduling allows us to complete phased projects on time and within budget while maintaining a smooth experience for all stakeholders.

  • Strategically designed plans that reduce interruptions during construction
  • Efficient resource allocation to maintain budgetary constraints
  • Adherence to schedules, ensuring on-time project delivery
  • Strict compliance with safety regulations and industry standards
  • Transparent communication to keep stakeholders informed and aligned

Experience an Integrated Approach to Success

Bancroft uses an integrated approach for architectural master planning of healthcare facilities. Our process involves collaboration between architects, engineers, construction managers, and healthcare providers to develop comprehensive plans aligned with the client’s clinical, operational, and financial goals.

Key strategies include optimizing adjacencies between departments, designing for maximum efficiency in clinical workflows, planning flexible layouts for future expansion or modification, employing evidence-based design principles to enhance patient safety and outcomes, and creating healing environments centered on the needs of patients, families, and staff.

Throughout design and construction, we maintain a big-picture perspective to ensure that all building systems and components are coordinated and that the finished facility integrates architecture, engineering, and technology to support exceptional care delivery. Our integrated planning services allow healthcare providers to cost-effectively construct and modernize facilities tailored to their specific needs and objectives.

Pursue Sustainability Through Our Master Planning Services

Bancroft is committed to sustainable design and incorporating green building practices into our projects. We take a holistic approach to architectural master planning that considers not just the building itself but how it integrates with the surrounding natural and built environment.

  • Passive solar design to maximize natural lighting and heating
  • Energy and water efficient systems such as LED lighting, low-flow plumbing fixtures, etc.
  • Sourcing local and renewable construction materials
  • Implementing stormwater management and rainwater harvesting systems
  • Prioritizing pedestrian and bicycle access and circulation
  • Providing access to green spaces and preserving existing natural features and vegetation
  • Achieving green building certifications such as LEED

Our architects and planners carefully consider building orientation, massing, and layout when developing master plans. We run energy models to optimize efficiency and work closely with civil engineers on strategies like bioswales and porous paving to manage stormwater responsibly.
