Based in Houston, PDR specializes in the delivery of innovative workplace design and solutions. As a world-class, workplace consultancy and a premier creative design firm, our integrated services address both business requirements and the work environment to create high performance spaces designed to evolve over time. We have worked with global companies, real estate advisors, and developers to continuously redefine the high performance workplace. We are a hybrid design firm; 1/3 business consulting, 2/3 workplace architecture. PDR recognizes the workplace as a key strategic asset in promoting the effective integration of talent, process, and technology to maximize business performance and enable business success.

We know how companies work, how different generations of people want to work, and how to create a workplace that is as agile as your business.

PDR has spent many years working everyday INSIDE our clients’ companies, developing the next generation workplace.  Together we have studied 100 great campuses and workplaces.  We learn a great deal from working INSIDE our clients’ teams. Above all, we have learned that great places to work are always focused on the people who work there.

 So we start INSIDE. Check out our blog for more.
