are pleased to introduce the firm A/R/C Associates, Incorporated.
Roof Consultants and Construction Specialists form the basis of
our professional staff. This staff, through its initial education
and a continuing program of education and professional development,
is kept current with today's construction technology. Our in-house
capability is supplemented with professional engineers and qualified
testing laboratories. In this manner, the firm offers our clients
a team of highly trained design and construction professionals.
We consider the owner to be a member of this team, a participant
in developing exceptional professional services.
Incorporated was formed in 1982 in response to a growing need for
an architectural firm with specialized capabilities in roof consulting
and construction technology.
were added the workload increased, requiring additional personnel
to meet our growing commitments. This growth resulted in the firm
being moved in 1985 to its present location. At that time we renovated
3,400 square feet of office space in the 601 Professional Building
specifically to house our firm.
Our spacious accommodations
have continued to evolve as the firm moved into a
completely computer based design and drafting production system.
This has been networked so that all production personnel have Internet
access with individual e-mail addresses, access to a CAD library
of construction details and office master specifications. This commitment
to improvement has helped A/R/C Associates continue to be a leader
in the design profession. Our continuing efforts to bring the best
personnel, technology and equipment together for the benefit of
our clients has given A/R/C associates a well deserved reputation
as a specialty architectural and consulting firm.
As a result
of the success that A/R/C Associates, Incorporated has had in the
field of Roof Consulting, the work was expanded to include the design
of corrective action for most categories of problems involving moisture
penetration. This focus on the corrective action required for moisture
related problems dominates the majority of the work we perform for
our clients and we are proud to be recognized as an architectural
firm with this very important specialty.
