Company Description: Dahn & Krieger Architects Planners PC was formed in 1988. We have worked with a variety of clients and have gained valuable experience in all types and phases of the building process. We have also had a great deal of successful experience working with owners, property managers, and building committees in providing the type of comprehensive programming, building evaluation, space planning and construction documentation services needed to provide a proper fit between programming goals, space constraints and project budget.
Additionally, we have extensive experience with alteration/renovation work, code compliance work and barrier-free accessibility modifications, and we fully comprehend the inherent challenges presented by projects of this type. In support of our efforts, we have assembled a team of engineering consultants who share our standards and commitment to service and with whom we have worked successfully on numerous projects.
We also involve ourselves heavily in the construction phase and, as such, have gained a wealth of experience that clearly illustrates the differences between drawings and field conditions. This allows us to have a better understanding of construction methods and tolerances when we sit down at the drawing table. We have acquired a reputation with contractors and municipal construction officials for producing not only extremely complete and clear documents but also details that can be built and recognize the nature of the construction process.
The size and composition of our firm permit us to effectively and efficiently produce work quickly and competitively yet still provide for continuing principal involvement throughout the course of a project. We believe our firm is uniquely equipped to respond expeditiously to our client's needs and provide an incomparable level of service commensurate with project goals and constraints.
Our firm was established with the belief that servicing the client is the single most important and defining characteristic an architect can demonstrate. We do not direct our energies towards obtaining design awards. Rather, our satisfaction and reward come from helping people achieve their stated project objectives and building a mutually satisfactory relationship of some duration with our clients. We always tell people we are not in the "product" business but the "service" business. The built reality is simply the physical manifestation of a collaborative process intended to respond to a set of needs and objectives.
