It’s EnSite’s birthday! Designing the next 10 years
July 10, 2015
Wow, has it been ten years?! Time flies when you’re having fun. We really are having fun serving the community where we live, work, learn and play. And now we have the privilege of designing the next 10 years. What will Southwest Florida look like in 2025? We’re expecting it will look amazing, because its residents, community organizations, businesses and leaders are so engaged in creating a more beautiful, functional, connected, sustainable future.
It wasn’t always roses and daisies during these ten years. The company started with a simple idea: why work for someone when you can do it on your own? Change up the typical corporate pyramid structure, bring everyone together on the same level playing field and put the client first. Make every client feel like the most important client, because it’s true. Clients who appreciate hard work and honesty become your best marketing team.
Being in the industry for over 17 years, we learned from the top land development / multi-use firms in the area, and that prepared us and allowed us to open the business in June 2005. We understood what it took, and we knew we could do it better. We experienced immediate success and growth, as the market conditions were perfect for our firm, as well as all the other firms in the area. This exuberance lasted only for a short period of time. In 2007-2008 the market crashed.
So we did something about it – we rebranded. The logo and the name embody how we approach our projects. We look at each project comprehensively and how it fits within the natural and built environment. How can we add that special touch to make it better for not only the client, but the community? It was time to branch out and open the door to new opportunities and a new beginning. In 2009 we re-launched the company with new faces and a new outlook, but knew that rededicating ourselves to our core values was the only way forward.
Every day we strive to make our community better today than it was yesterday, with the community as our most important collaborator. There are a lot of yesterdays behind us now, and we can’t wait to see how much better the tomorrows will be in the years to come.
