Good design cultivates memories and we keep this in mind for every project.
As designers, architects, and engineers we have a responsibility to deliver projects that are safe, highly functional, and beautiful; but they also can become something that transcends bricks and mortar. Our projects have ranged in size from smaller commercial remodels to large & complex multi-use facilities. Although our expertise is diverse, we focus on these project types:
"From the great architects at JLA to our contractors, the work and communication has been fantastic. Working with professionals who take care in their work and strive for better is always a joy. Everybody who sees our new building is impressed and seems to love the design and we are so very happy; you guys did a great job."Nathan LeinweberPartner, The Brickyard Inc.
"I wanted to reach out and say thank you for being such a great architect to work with on the Grandview project and all of the projects that we have done in the past. It's really refreshing to have someone who is so in tune with what is going on with a project and can give us real-time feedback."Nic SellCommercial HVAC Design Engineer, Dave Jones Inc.
