What drives us?
It’s the challenge of bringing impossible ideas into reality. It’s creating iconic custom features by transforming your ideas into captivating experiences. It’s the partnerships we create as we engage in the Plan-Build process together.
PLAN: A solid plan of execution is critical to the success of every project. At Heavy, we study your project from every angle, tackling how it will be designed, built, transported and installed to mitigate risk, while maintaining your conceptual integrity and enabling you to think and design bigger. The latest 3D technology allows us to explore and clearly communicate design nuances through models, drawings, photo-realistic renderings and animation. By leveraging our experience and technology, we eliminate ambiguity and uncover blind spots early in the process. This allows us to lock down the design, schedule and cost to ensure we have a solid, realistic plan that will set your project up for success, before hitting the shop floor.
BUILD: With the right plan in place, we oversee and facilitate the entire build process and execute the concept to your budget, timeline and expectations. Our turnkey approach alleviates the pressure of managing multiple trades, maintaining continuity throughout the project. From shop drawings to manufacturing to installation, our experienced project management team is immersed in every detail to drive the build forward to reality.
THE HEAVY PALETTE: Our team has experience working with a vast range of processes and materials including metals, wood, composites, architectural concrete, glass, plastics, polycarbonates, coatings, interactive programmable lighting, photovoltaics, 3D printing and large format prototyping. We leverage that experience to execute your vision without compromise, while helping you to push boundaries and create the impossible.
WHO WE WORK WITH
We go all-in with clients who are passionate about creating a lasting legacy and aren’t afraid to make their mark on their surroundings. No matter the scope of the project, we enable our clients to think bigger and push the boundaries of what’s possible.
Heavy believes in a truly collaborative process with the artists we work with, giving you full access to our shop, artisans, materials, and expertise.

Heavy wouldn’t be where we are today without the big ideas of the incredible artists we’ve worked with, and we are constantly looking for new ways to push boundaries and make your artistic vision possible.
Heavy works with architects to help you realize your vision without compromise. With a careful eye for blind spots and risks, we collaborate with you early in the design process, considering all aspects of the project to ensure the features integrate seamlessly into the overall scope. You’ll have access to our materials and processes, allowing you to compare and understand material and design alternatives. At Heavy, we help you push the boundaries of your design, enabling you to think bigger and create something inspired, all the while respecting the project’s constraints that will help sell your vision to your clients.
