The Architects Alliance continues to build on the legacy established by its predecessors as a professional practice that has earned a reputation for competence and proficiency devoted to the best interest of its clients.  Our strength lies in our diversity with a project base including educational facilities, recreational centers, public buildings, corporate and industrial structures, retail merchandising complexes, private residences and urban planning studies.  Our client base includes, but is not limited to, boards of education, housing authorities, state and municipal governments, public agencies, corporate entities and commercial enterprises.

In response to the ever-changing demand of the marketplace and the broadening spectrum of construction related complexities, The Architects Alliance often offers its clients enhanced professional services through the cooperative efforts of engineering partners, associated professionals and allied consultants.  Recognizing that building design is a collaborative effort, we are able to respond to a client's needs with a comprehensive team of professionals, offering services which reach beyond the boundary of the conventional practice of architecture and offer the client a team of experts tailored specifically to meet the needs of each individual project.

Since successful construction projects are often the result of early involvement and interaction, The Architects Alliance has placed an increased focus on promoting the benefit of consulting services. The range of our capabilities can be expanded beyond basic architectural services to include programming, master planning, site investigation and analysis, feasibility studies, forensic investigation, expert witness testimony and project or construction management.  Through increased interaction with the client during the initial phases of development, we can better define the project scope, translate the owner's desire into programmatic requirements, establish design goals, set cost effective budgets and realistically schedule the construction effort.  We integrate full-service architectural design services, produce detailed construction documents and administer the construction contract. The Architects Alliance can further protect the client's interest through hands-on field observation, increased management and supervision during construction.   

To ensure professional services that are competitively priced, we have made a commitment to computerized production and analytical systems; thus renewing the promise to our clients to control costs and to promote greater efficiency.

As experienced communicators and expert problem solvers, The Architects Alliance has developed into a team of renovation experts.  Our technical staff is detail-oriented, with the knowledge and expertise necessary to reason through most cause and effect relationships.  This experience can help prevent the reoccurrence of problematic conditions which often plague aging structures.  Our forensic investigations are thorough and have earned us a highly regarded reputation among our clients and peers.  We have amassed a widely diversified portfolio of projects involving masonry restoration, roof replacement, water-proofing, window, door and curtainwall replacement, fire and security systems, heating, cooling and ventilation upgrades, enhancements to improve accessibility, site analysis, design and related embellishments,  interior renovations, structural stabilizations, spatial reconfiguration and adaptive reuse.

The Architects Alliance maintains an extensive technical library in-house and current product information is routinely accessed via the internet to ensure the latest in technical advancements.  Our computerized specification system helps promote quality control. The detailed nature of our construction documents is unparalleled.  This office firmly believes that thorough documentation results in better quality, competitive construction bids, less administrative concerns and ultimately a satisfied client.
