Services We Offer

Our local team of Architects and Engineers will work hard to meet the Client’s goals and expectations.  During the Pre-Design phase, we will thoroughly understand the intent of the project, the needs of the owner as well as the end user, the budget constraints, and the desired life cycle of the building.  We will then continue to develop the design, along with the Owner, through the Design and Construction Documentation process, and finally through construction.

Planning/ Design Expertise:

  • Our team works hard to understand each client’s unique project and company, spending great time developing a program that is custom fit for each circumstance.  
  • In addition to understanding the space planning requirements of each use, including how employee movement or equipment needs to flow/work within each space, we also understand how the mix of the various uses need to be separated and yet integrate within each other.
  • Our team has substantial experience in the integration of the latest technology within new buildings and understands what is required to design buildings and spaces that not only meet an owner’s current needs, but also what will continue to work for them in the future.
  • Adaptive Reuse is more than just marketing term for our firm.  For more that 20 years we have retrofitted and designed exciting spaces within existing buildings that were originally designed for another use or occupant.  Each year more than 30% of our projects generally fall within this category, for a variety of clients (corporate, industrial, medical, multi-family residential, etc.)

Automation and Technology Based Buildings:

  • Our offices are at the forefront of working with clients to design ‘Smart Buildings’ that meet their program needs.  Our design objectives with any Client is to advise them of the options available to them that will meet their program, incorporate selected options into the design, and still allow for future expansion as new technology becomes available.
  • Our team continues to research the latest technologies available for various uses and meets regularly with representatives of these companies to determine their value.  Additionally, we have partnered with an AV/IT/Automation company that allows us to specify various features within the construction documents for a seamless bidding and construction process.
  • Some technologies that we are currently utilizing in similar facilities, include automation that links key cards with door locks, printers, lockers, etc. (through 75 buildings for one client), integrated security systems within door jambs, 16’ video walls linked to client appointments, and multiple automated devices and security features all controlled from a central station or from an Owner’s mobile device.

Sustainability:

  • Our offices have successfully completed multiple LEED accredited facilities; however, even when a project is not looking to achieve a LEED rating, we advise Clients on ways that they can construct an efficient and sustainable building, without greatly impacting the budget, if at all.
  • Through innovative and attentive designing, our projects contain green/ energy conscious initiatives.  Common to our projects are features such as daylighting, use of recycle materials, energy efficient lighting and plumbing fixtures, automated HVAC control systems, use of alternative energy sources, etc.

AutoCAD/ Revit Modeling Software and Coordination:

  • Our offices currently use the latest versions of AutoCAD and Autodesk Revit software to create detailed building information models (BIM).  Revit allows us to link with the building information model with our engineering consultants, decreasing our documentation time and allowing for more flexibility for multiple design options.  This coordination between the disciplines reduces design inefficiencies and enhances our ability to resolve constructability issues before they occur. BIM models created by our office are true 4D models.
  • To aid in the development of the BIM process, we also utilize a 3D Scanner to produce Existing Conditions As-Built Building Scans, Point-In-Time Construction As-Built Building Scans, and Post-Construction, As-Built Building Scans.  These scans result in scalable 3D Point Cloud Models with High Definition images, including virtual walkthroughs.

Architectural/Engineering Discipline Coordination:

  • Our team of Architects and Engineers have worked together for more than 20 years on a great variety of projects.  Part of the reason that we work so well together is that ADG takes an active lead in coordinating all building and site related disciplines, including Structural, Mechanical, Electrical, Plumbing, Fire Protection, Land Surveying, Civil, Geotechnical Engineering.
  • This effort includes the following for each project:
    • Conducting bi-weekly design meetings to coordinate the design process and ensure an integrated design development process;
    • Reviewing of each discipline’s documentation for coordination;
    • Maintaining the Revit model (if applicable) for use by all disciplines; and
    • Providing and maintaining an online communication/ project management system for the project, to be utilized by all disciplines for communication and file exchange.

Budgeting & Value Engineering:

  • We feel that ‘Value Engineering’ happens during the design and engineering process, not at the point of construction when the project goes to bid.  To that end we have a full-time Construction Manager on staff with over 40 years of experience managing commercial projects ranging from $1 Million to $40 Million, who continuously reviews system selections, constructibility options, material selections, and specifications.
  • At multiple points during the design and documentation process, our office will perform construction budget estimates to confirm that the overall design, and discipline specific design elements are falling within the Owner’s previously designed budget.  At a minimum, we propose that these estimates to be performed at the conclusion of the Conceptual Schematic Design Phase, conclusion of the Design Development Phase (40% +/-), and during the Construction Document Phase (80% +/-).
