We see architecture as the marriage of the art of design, the science of construction, the needs of the client, the regulations of local agencies, and public opinion. Planning a building on paper is nothing new – the Greeks and Romans did it quite well. Our mission is to think and plan in advance of the assembly process – in a way that considers all possible options and constraints. And while world-class aesthetics are always an important component of our designs, every element from potential colors and textures to mechanical and fire protection systems is considered down to the last detail. We think of ourselves as “Master Builders”, managing modern materials, construction methods, environmental constraints, bureaucracies, and business.
We offer a full range of architectural services from initial predesign and planning through construction close-out. AD’s architects have years of experience designing just about every type of facility one can think of, and regularly provide the knowledge necessary to ensure code compliance, quickly obtain required permits, or achieve LEED certification on a project. We use the latest industry software and 3D modeling tools to constantly improve our workflow and streamline coordination between competing design disciplines, ensuring that the documents we create are clear, accurate, and minimize conflicts during construction.
Our architects also provide continued support all the way through project close-out, including construction management, administration, and inspection services to ensure that construction adheres to the final contract documents.
