The unique aspect of our group is in the essence of our name: we are an alliance of professionals with diverse yet complimentary areas of expertise.  The result is a sharply focused design resource team, which provides architectural, engineering and interior design services to our clients.  Typical services provided are space analysis and programming, comprehensive corporate facility design, tenant improvement programs and retail showroom, restaurant and health care facility design.

Our 5 designers & architects make up the Design Consortium team


Consortium philosophy emphasizes the importance of the functionality of the environments that it creates.  Each project undertaken is supervised by a principal, who sees it through from inception to completion.  The Design Consortium realizes that each client is unique and has particular requirements.  Accordingly, we devote considerable time to determining the actual needs of the end user and offering customized solutions

Most importantly, our consortium approach allows us to incorporate the expertise and technology required to achieve our clients goals.
