Many of the projects have been both residential and commercial, but always requires an understanding of the clients’ needs to be incorporated into the design. And while the program requirements will change with each client, there are always project parameters to balance while creating a design that will stand the test of time. As an award winning architect, this goal has been recognized and continues to challenge each new project.
In addition, we have provided Third Party Inspection Services for commercial projects as documentation and on site verification of compliance with the International Building Code and Life Safety Code in Maryland since January 2000. This compliance review is a through inspection process to insure that the approved construction documents are strictly followed and that all life safety
codes are satisfied.y
