Not Your Average Architecture Firm
We were excited to learn all about CICADA and how they have gotten where they are today, so we sat down with co-founder, Seamus Mcguire.
The first thing we wanted to know was what it is that makes CICADA stand apart from its competitors. Seamus said:
“We are attentive to our clients’ needs; we’re punctual when maintaining deliverables, and we’re communicative throughout the entire process. We’re in the business of service, so we have to make sure that our clients are happy, we listen to them and we’re providing them with the service they need.”
He went on to tell us about how they stay aware of their impact on the community, saying:
“Ultimately, we’re in the business of architecture, and a lot of what we do impacts the community greatly, whether it’s how people inhabit the buildings we design or the building itself within the ecosystem — is it sustainable, is it sensitive to the environment around us? …We’re having a lot of flooding, so we have to do a lot of stormwater management. We have to be delicate with the designs in which we put our buildings and how people inhabit them.”
Building Success Through Quality Work
CICADA has earned a fantastic reputation, so we asked Seamus how they have managed to grow their business and get their name out.
In addition to building the kind of online reputation that any small business would envy, CICADA has spread the word about who they are and what they do by utilizing and staying active on social media so they can stay in touch with their community. Seamus said:
“People want to be on the up and up about what you’re doing.”
There are many businesses out there that are looking to build as impressive a reputation as CICADA has managed to. We asked if Seamus could share any expert advice with these companies. Here’s what he had to say:
“Do quality work within your profession. Make sure your clients are happy, and ask them if they’re happy. Get their feedback about what you’re doing right or wrong. At the end of the day, they’ll leave a review, good or bad, that will help remind you if you’re going in the right direction or the wrong direction.”
Congratulations to CICADA for being a 2019 Top Rated Local award winner, and special thanks to Seamus for taking the time to speak with us!
