New Fire Native Design Group is founded on the idea of new beginnings, the emergence of a new direction and focus on supporting Native American clients. Just like when a tribal town was formed, we are lighting a new fire — a fire that reflects our passion and drive for what we do. Today, tribes are experiencing a reemergence and new direction with improved opportunities for their people as well as a renewed passion for their culture, heritage and traditions. New Fire Native is focused on helping Native American communities reach their potential through forward-looking planning and design that maintains a strong reverence and respect for their past. When you work with New Fire Native, you’ll gain an experienced team committed to delivering quality projects on time, on budget and on target.
Jason Holuby has been an instrumental leader in Native American architecture for nearly twenty years. A Native American himself, Jason is passionate about working together with tribes to support the development of their communities. He brings well-respected problem solving skills, leadership, and understanding of tribal cultures as well as innovation throughout a project’s life cycle. His professionalism and client relationships have created ongoing, multi-project legacies with the Chickasaw, Choctaw and Muscogee (Creek) Nations and the Shawnee Tribe. Jason is a licensed architect, LEED Accredited Professional, member of the American Institute of Architects and a citizen of the Muscogee (Creek) Nation.
OUR DELIVERY PROCESS
New Fire Native Design Group can serve our clients in several ways. As a native-owned affiliate company of FSB, we can draw from the horsepower and tremendous reputation of one of Oklahoma’s largest and longest lived architecture and engineering firms to support the expertise of Jason Holuby and deliver complete and fully integrated designs for nearly any project type or level of complexity. In addition, we have the ability to form teams with other entities that our clients may have strong working relationships with, or may have background and experience that may benefit the team. We are no stranger to building and leading customized teams for a wide array of projects and look forward to building a world-class team of professionals for your project.
In order to help you achieve your tribe’s vision, our experts can advise you in the following areas:
We deliver strong, impactful designs that enrich lives and improve performance. We believe that great design goes well beyond the aesthetics and mechanics of a building. That is why we take the time to truly and thoughtfully listen to you, our clients, to gain a complete understanding of your specific needs before the design process initiates. We also seek input from every project stakeholder from the beginning, and our clients benefit from the exceptional time and research we invest up front. With this approach, we can effectively co-create a vision that fulfills your needs and desires, fitting within your budget and time parameters.
By working with us, you will benefit from a team that combines the best in analysis and artistry, technology and creativity, backed up with analytical thinking and appropriate technology. We develop long-term relationships with our clients, helping to deliver continuous improvement in effectiveness and efficiency throughout the life cycle of our solutions. Team members are assigned to a project throughout the entire design and construction phases, allowing us to maximize project knowledge continuity.
Our overriding mission is to ensure your needs are met, and that the completed building reflects the design intent, produced with quality materials and workmanship.
We create powerful interior spaces where people work, play, live and learn. As beautiful as a building may be on the outside, it is the inside that counts. We know that strong, well-designed interior spaces improve people’s lives, not just their job performance. That’s why we work hand-in-hand with you, our client, to create interior spaces that inspire occupants, facilitate top-level performance and help attract the best employees.
Our creative, collaborative process begins with face-to-face meetings to learn about each client’s specific workplace environment, culture, goals and needs. Every detail of the resulting design — space, color, materials, energy and light — is co-created with you to boost employees’ wellness and productivity, through delivery of comprehensive design that captures the total desired package for each individual workplace. We work to optimize the human experience of space, providing a beautiful and functional environment that empowers everyone within its walls.
Because of our close ties to FSB, New Fire Native has the ability to team with FSB’s top-notch engineers to provide customized engineering solutions that are fully integrated and cost efficient. However, if you prefer, we are also happy to work with your preferred engineering consultants or supplement the team by utilizing engineers with specialized project type or local knowledge and expertise.
Our comprehensive, all-discipline design approach allows mechanical, electrical, structural and fire protection systems to be seamlessly integrated into the building architecture while maximizing comfort and minimizing maintenance.
We pride ourselves on listening to our clients in order to deliver the most life-cycle cost-effective system which meets their needs. We view each design on a case-by-case scenario — not a one-size-fits-all solution, but tailored to our clients’ needs, their situation, their budget and building type. No matter how technically demanding the job may be, we will work to consistently deliver thoughtful, optimal solutions that fulfill the needs and challenges of each individual project.
