Pardini Design Group has provided award-winning architectural design services to our clients for nearly 30 years. Our work has included projects for clients primarily in the public sector. School Districts, Port Authorities, Transit Agencies, Cities, Counties, the State of Washington, Corps of Engineers, and other agencies of the Federal Government all have selected us to design significant projects for them. We have also worked for private individuals and corporations completing many projects in the housing and health care industries. In recent years we have focused on new methods of project delivery including public/private partnerships and new hybrid delivery methods including “Bridge Design”. Our work in this area is supported by our belief that new methods of product delivery are necessary to regain control of the construction process for our clients to deliver better projects at lower cost and reduce risk levels. Our design process relies heavily on workshop-based consensus building. Working closely with our clients and stakeholders we believe that great design emerges from an open and inclusive process.
