Our Story

The “easy to work with” part has been our reputation and our story for nearly 35 years of delivering high quality architectural and engineering services from our offices in Akron, Ohio to the Northeast Ohio region and points beyond.

With an emphasis on healthcare, laboratory and research design, we have provided professional services for a long list of clients representing a wide range of building types, scopes, and scales. Our civil, structural, and interior design services augment our architecture.

We’re proud to say that the majority of our work is commissioned by repeat clients, several of whom we’ve been partnering with since our inception in 1982.

We’re always open to new challenges, though. New clients, building types, materials and building techniques—the one constant in our business is change. Our specialty is helping you to manage your change.  Learning about you and your project challenges while providing guidance through the design and construction process—these are the things that define our service to you.

Managing change requires embracing it. Lean and Six Sigma principles, experience with integrated project delivery, creative teaming arrangements with colleagues, and an open-mindedness to new initiatives keeps us fresh and responsive to your needs.

We are one of the region’s largest firms in number of registered architects. These experienced professionals comprise the majority of our staff, an anomaly in today’s market. This means that the staff devoted to your project has the skills, background, and depth of experience to create your desired result.

Our reputation is based on professionalism—in working with clients, in the production of quality construction documentation, in interfacing with the construction professionals entrusted to your project, and in producing creative, but sensible designs.
