Design with enthusiasm.

There is something we want to design. There is somewhere we want to impact. There is someone we want to help build a vision.

From the first lines made on trace paper through to design, permitting, and construction administration our goal is to work with you as a team through all phases of a project. We are architects who design with purpose and passion.

We are based in Calgary, Alberta, Canada, however we will meet you regardless of where you are located. 

DESIGN WITH PURPOSE.

PROCESS.


Process is so important. The process of architecture needs to be an enjoyable experience, where we engage with you as a team. Each decision made should be fun, applicable and informative. If we work as a team, then the project will be successful and positive.

" A line on a drawing has the power to change the environment, and the world." 

VISUALIZE.

BE A VISIONARY

Lets talk. We'll listen. Integrating with a design team, shoulder to shoulder with the client is the most productive and relevant process there is. Design process becomes about communication. Once we communicate, the clearer we can be visionaries for you.

CREATe.

ENTHUSIASTIC DESIGN

Once we have a vision for a project, it is time to make the design real. This is the fun part. 

As a younger firm, our enthusiasm for good design is important to making your building the best it can be.

DEVELOP & REFINE

Scrutinize. At J A Architects, we want to put out the best design and set of drawings possible. 

Design development is the stage at which we polish up the work and ask the questions that influence the details. The details are very important to us.

Environment & the new national energy code in alberta

The new National Energy Code coming into effect in Alberta this coming October (2016) is a good indicator that environment is a focus in the design and construction industry moving forward. More people are aware of the energy that their buildings are consuming, and now we have the resources and technology to make improvements to the consumption of energy. We currently have key personal and team engineers that are LEED accredited in their genre of practice, and in addition, we strive to offer LEED services and remain educated on the latest changes and what's important towards a responsible design and energy efficiency. Please ask us about these options.

CONSTRUCTION PROCESS

Construction is important. Construction is exciting.

Designs that are well thought out, and have true constructibility is extremely important to any project. Our architects have experience in construction and have an ability to think about the actual construction of our details. We do our best to work with the client to produce drawings that are legible and detailed enough to be clearly articulated.

These are the things that matter when it comes to delivering a project that meets the budget

CONSTRUCTION ADMINISTRATION

Construction administration is about team work. 

This is the time where the design team, contractor, and client come together as a team. Construction administration is about asking the right questions at the right time with planning. Our architects strive to be accessible to the client and contractor throughout the process of construction and stay on top of the paper trail to keep things moving along. 

These are the things that matter when it comes to delivering a project that meets the schedule.


'When a team of architects, engineers, owners and contractors come together as a team, it is amazing what can be accomplished when we work together.'
