Initially thriving on residential and commercial renovations, additions, and adaptive re-use of old buildings, the work now consists of diverse building types and clientele.

In all of these project types the firm incorporates imaginative, “outside-of-the-box” problem solving and aesthetic invention, as a means of satisfying the multi-faceted needs of our clients.
