Target market and primary Client base: Private sector developers and/or investors that build larger multi-family housing (rental apartments) retail and transit village projects. Most viewers of our website would be in the 20 & up age bracket. Most (but not all) of the decision makers to hire an architect would be over 30. Our Clients need to appeal to a wide range of age groups; however they would predominately target those of working age; consequently, the needs of our Clients need to be reflected in the character of our website.
