INHERENT COMPLEXITY. INNOVATIVE STRATEGY.
PROGRAM DEVELOPMENT AND CONSULTATION
Listening to you is the secret of our success.
Programming is the first step in the design process. Through this research and problem solving process, we help you access your needs and wants and translate them into spaces and structures.
Your big ideas, elevated.
At CJA, we partner with you to solve your design problems. We create the bridge between what you imaging and what you need. The result is purposeful architecture that serves those who live and work within these structures.
SPACE PLANNING + INTERIOR DESIGN
Functional spaces that feel good.
We develop a layout of spaces and adjacencies with inventive, practical and logical arrangements. We research and evaluate code influences on the design while developing innovative plan solutions to meet program and architectural theme objectives. We select the most appropriate materials and finishes to achieve the creative and dynamic interiors that match your vision and budget.
No challenge is too big.
With a firm grasp of the big picture, we develop a detailed plan with consideration of all sites. We evaluate the relationships between all project elements and offer the insight essential to creating effective circulation and flow. From writing design guidelines to developing plans for multiple structures, we add value with cohesive, comprehensive service.
We deal with chaos so you don't have to.
Your project manager represents your interests throughout all project phases throughout all phases to assure accountability and reliability with jurisdictional departments, compliance, and management of the various services and providers.
We work well with others.
Each project team includes consulting professionals with whom we share reliable relationships and years of collaborative experience. This group of consultants includes civil, structural, mechanical, electrical and geotechnical engineers, as well as landscape architects and specialty consultants, such as acoustical and lighting engineers.
We fight for your cause.
Our knowledge of requirements and positive rapport industry agencies results in effective processing and timely approvals. We engage these departments early in the project to gather the input and feedback that help to prevent costly delays.
BUILDING MANAGEMENT SUPPORT
You have a lot going on, and we like to help.
We provide efficient permitting and CAD services, square-footage and area analyses to keep track of common, rentable and useable areas, and knowledge of the BOMA standard building measuring methods. We assist facilities managers with databases and software that support their needs, from additional documentation of building elements to upkeep of their internal drawing database.
ACCESSIBILITY SURVEYS & UPGRADES
We help you help others.
Our architects are proactive about accessibility requirements and have extensive experience in accessibility compliance. From the site inspections to construction documents and permitting to implementation support, we make it easy for you to provide a safe and accommodating environment.
