COMMUNITY ENGAGEMENT

Along with our mission to create architectural environments that reflect the aspirations of our clients, we also give back to the communities in which we work - whether through reduced design fees to non-profits or through volunteer work in many community organizations that foster community well-being.

COMPANY INVOLVEMENT

As a company, we sometimes donate part or all of our design fees to non-profits, depending on the project. For example, we’ve reduced our design fees for Rebuilding Together Pittsburgh and the Pittsburgh Ballet Theater. If you have a non-profit project that needs design assistance, we are happy to talk with you about it to see if we can help. Our experience covers all aspects of architectural design for new construction and renovations for commercial buildings, offices, industrial, retail, residential, institutional, historic building adaptive reuse, master planning, ADA compliance and building audits, and landlord support.
