A Proven Approach to Design

Architectural Design Services

As we moved through the various phases of the project—schematic, design and construction—we enjoyed the strengths of K&A in relation to our mission. During the schematic phase, the design team listened to us, catching the vision if you would, of this incredible project and creatively put on paper the hopes and dreams of Joan Kroc and the local Salvation Army leadership team. As we moved into the design phase, we saw their attention to detail and a practicality that was needed to keep us on time and on budget. Finally, as we moved into the construction phase, the K&A team continued to show cooperation and leadership with the rest of the professional team in order to successfully complete our project.

Ready and Capable

A Powerful Team

One of the underlying principles guiding everything we do is the understanding that a tightly integrated design team is required at the heart of every project—a design team built on the daily practices of collaboration and cross-pollination between disciplines, staff and client. Add to this an emphasis on the use of Building Information Modeling (BIM) systems as part of our normal workflow, and you have the makings of a powerful team of designers who are ready and capable to make your next project a reality.
