Since the firm was established in 1983, it has developed a sound general practice including projects for healthcare, financial, educational, commercial, religious, municipal, residential and industrial facilities. Within this excellent balance of building types, there are outstanding examples of various styles that include traditional, contemporary, Romanesque revival and rural. This broad-based background has provided a rich source of innovations and systems unique to each project, yet applicable to all new building types. These innovations and systems have resulted in fresh solutions.
DPH Architecture stresses the relationship between the building envelope and interior space, cost and technical issues. The development of interior spaces, particularly the visual appeal and image that’s suited to the user of the space, worker adequacy, efficiency and comfort level, must be addressed to determine the optimal configuration and appearance of the space and site. Maximizing the development potential of a site strongly influences the success of a speculative project.
The firm is experienced in solving issues of zoning, parking and circulation, access, visibility and construction phasing. Cost-effective site planning and sensitive site design must work together to achieve a quality development. Along with the design, a strict commitment to sound and fair business practice has resulted in consistently meeting schedules, budgets and the goals of its clients. The firm has skilled personnel at all levels including clerical staff, drafting technicians, project managers and staff architects. The principal oversees all projects from initial planning through building occupancy, providing a single point of responsibility and assuring optimal coordination among all disciplines and consultants.
