Nancy Hamilton: Founder of be INTEGRATED


Nancy Hamilton

Be Integrated is rooted in the philosophy that good design is integrated design.

Integrated design is a criteria-driven design and engineering process that optimizes the physical, operational, and budgetary puzzle of projects.

We believe that the whole should be optimized, not just the components.
Solutions are elegant, clearly organized, adaptable, and flexible to stand the test of time.
We see the big picture and make connections that others do not see. So we can deliver results other firms haven’t thought of.
The built environment needs to work better, and we will play a part in the coming decades to make our cities smarter, more sustainable, and able to stand the test of time.

Nancy has built her career on a single philosophy: excellence. She built a career on excellence, because she believes in the purity of excellence. She sees the way it can change a person when they expect excellence of themselves. And she sees the way that viewing excellence in all its forms inspires the best in others.

Nancy’s career has been focused on complex buildings and how to create truly integrated high performance projects.
She has excelled, bringing unique insight to architects and clients.
Her projects have typically been unique, complex, high profile, award-winning and sustainable.
