We foster a positive, energetic, creative collaboration with our clients and design team, and we strive to inspire people and communities through our building designs. Our clients are our most important asset, and we involve them in every aspect of the design and construction process of their buildings.
Our design team is comprised of talented designers who are NCARB Certified Licensed Architects in five states, a licensed General Contractor, specialists in Green Building Design, and experts in national and local ADA codes.
At Hartley + Purdy Architecture, there are a few specific elements of our creative approach that add tremendous value to the buildings we design:
- First, we strive to maximize floor plan and structural efficiency in order to simplify the essence of the building design and provide our clients with the most value for their budget. Developing a clear foundation, leads to the design of cost-effective, remarkable buildings.
- Next, we aim to maximize constructability. Our extensive construction background, highlighted by Mark Hartley’s experience as a General Contractor, differentiates us from other architecture firms because we can think like a contractor. This enables us to design building details that expedite the construction process, are more cost-effective to build and make life easier for the General Contractors during construction.
- We also look to maximize energy efficiency in the buildings we design. We are members of the US Green Building Council, and we boast two LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) Accredited Professionals on staff. Green Building practices include designing and constructing buildings that use energy, water, and materials efficiently; have a reduced impact on their physical environment; and promote a healthy indoor environment. As strong believers in sustainability and environmentally friendly design, we utilize these methods in our approach to every building we design.
- Finally, our design process enables us to produce aesthetically stunning buildings that help to create an identity or brand for our clients.
Word of mouth referrals are the ultimate compliment, and we take great pride in developing lifelong relationships with our clients.
