Who Is K&A?

Based in Collingswood, New Jersey, and with 50 years of providing professional design solutions throughout the country, K&A is a 65-person multidisciplinary design firm offering our clients a one-stop shop of comprehensive design and building services. From initial concept through final construction, we help navigate the entire development experience. As early in the process as site identification, we will guide the project from its initial impact and capacity studies, planning and zoning analyses, all the way through schematic design, construction documentation, approval, and final construction. Because that’s who we are.

To Collaboration

As a multidisciplinary design firm with architects, engineers, energy specialists, planners and interior designers all working together under a single roof, we bring a truly collaborative process to all of our projects — one built on communication, respect and a shared appreciation for what is possible when people work together.


By Design

Projects don’t come together without leadership, and to effectively lead you need to be proactive. K&A’s approach is just that — fully engaged with every team member from the beginning, coordinating their needs with the needs of the client and the job, and identifying and resolving critical path activities before they become major issues. This saves time, money, and resources.

Capable, Experienced


Our staff of 60+ professionals gives us the ability to assemble specific project teams that best serve our clients’ needs — as well as the capability to maintain the integrity of those teams throughout the full life of the project. With a diverse staff, spanning multiple disciplines, and decades of relevant experience, we have afforded ourselves the ability to reliably serve a wide variety of markets.
