Project guide

Helping teams navigate their way throughout the whole design process.

We put as much effort into helping clients develop their strategy, as we do designing their building. This means championing the values that drive each unique project.

While undertaking a three-phase process of acquiring and renovating our school’s permanent home, Signal Works has guided us through changing regulatory environments, and helped us meet seemingly impossible challenges, always with positivity, optimism, and creativity. Rosalind DaCruz

Solving real problems, for real people, in real places

We believe there is a design solution for every business problem that arises. For this reason, we have never met a challenge we couldn’t overcome, no matter what the field:

VALUE CHAMPIONS

Ensuring that all projects reflect their organization, inside and out.

Above all else, we want our clients’ values fully expressed in their buildings. We believe in this so strongly, we live it ourselves.

We are the only B-Corp Certified Architects in Rhode Island

B Corporations use their business model as a force for good. This certification is granted only to companies that have met their rigorous standards for social and environmental responsibility.

We became certified to codify our impact business model, and be held to third-party accountability and benchmarking standards.

We work hard to build and maintain a people-first ethos.

Our people are entirely responsible for the success of our projects and firm, and we would be remiss if we didn’t take care of them just as well. Our Care Team stewards the development of our internal culture, focusing first on the needs of our team and their families, and then bridging out to our business network and our community at large.

We believe in our mission so much, we adopted it for ourselves.

When Signal Works outgrew its old headquarters, we decided to practice what we preach. Instead of simply renting some space, we decided instead to transform a historic “broken building” in the center of Providence, transforming the neighborhood and creating opportunity for business and community growth in the process.
