When I went out on my own to launch David P Goode Architecture in 2009, I had a very specific philosophy behind it. You hire my business, you get me – now over 33 years (!!) of architecture, construction, and general engineering experience – all applied to every project.
I had worked for large firms: helping start a branch office in Colorado in 1994 which we grew to two locations and 38 employees; and heading up the 30-person Denver office of a national architecture firm. Each time, there were some things missing… the direct relationship with the client and the ability to swerve when needed to meet a client’s specific needs.
So, DPGA stays small. The direct relationship with the client, the knowledge based on decades of experience, and the flexibility to provide just what the client needs on a project by project basis. Yes, there are folks working in the background – drafters, designers, engineers – but, your project is never “passed off” to a junior staff member. I will answer your call and I will show up to your meetings.
