Awards & Recognition

We’re proud to have earned seven AIA awards, and been recognized by many publications. Above all else, we’re problem solvers, in fact we’re sometimes at our best when doing something new. Our first restaurant and first school projects both won AIA awards.

Of course we didn’t stop there. Give us a challenge, and we’ll help you achieve something great.
