Dunn & Dalton Architects, P.A. is dedicated to a pro-active client relationship, and has developed successful projects by working together with our clients and exceeding  their expectations. We also believe in working closely with other Team members during the design process as well as during construction. 


Teamwork is also a key to our past success.  D&DA  selectively teams with our consultants to match their experience with the proposed project.  D&DA promotes teamwork between the design team and the contractor to ensure a successfully completed project.  We are equally comfortable in traditional Owner/Architect/Contractor relationships as we are with Design-Build, Team-Build and fast-track concepts.  We have completed hundreds of Design-Build projects; many of our successful clients are also General Contractors, which indicates a unique willingness to work closely as a team member.  We pride ourselves in not being “ego” driven or inflexible in our design approach.  A smooth running project, happy client and successful budget are much more important to us.


We look forward to the opportunity of assisting in the design of your project!
