We are a full service architectural firm.

GPCA’s expert design team offers the unique combination of the scope of services, advanced technology, and diverse portfolio found at metropolitan architecture firms teamed with highly personalized, client-centric service. We work alongside each client, facilitating innovative architecture and solving design challenges with personal accountability at each step of the process to achieve the client’s desired objective. Driven by creativity, focused on collaboration, and inspired by the unique personas and challenging conditions of the mountain west communities we serve, GPCA creates places that are visually compelling and superbly functional.

OUR PROCESS

The most successful projects are rooted in one common element: engaged collaboration. At GPCA, our process is defined by open and honest communication, and unwavering commitment to our clients and community. This informed design model actively engages all stakeholders in a system of evaluation, decision making, problem solving, and action that leads to innovative planning and design concepts that support our client’s objectives. Our passion for innovation and insightful design not only makes our process an enjoyable experience from beginning to end, but also results in places that are intriguing to look at and inviting to experience.

At GPCA we understand that each project and client is unique, therefore our process is tailored to the particular needs of the individual project and client. Many public projects benefit from our expertly led design charettes and stakeholder meetings, which foster an inclusive atmosphere and provide our team with essential guidance from the user perspective. Commercial planning may benefit from cost estimating, navigating the approval process, and our extensive research in building code compliance. Designing a home might require multiple site visits and get-to-know-you meetings to gather the necessary input to produce a place that is compatible with the homeowners needs and with the natural surroundings.

Sustainable design practices are an essential part of today’s architectural standards – both to preserve our natural surroundings and reduce our impact, and provide the economic benefits of energy efficiency. Our proven processes in energy efficient design have resulted in multiple LEED certifications from Certified to Platinum and numerous industry awards. The team at GPCA is adept in sustainable design and well suited to produce environmentally friendly designs that reduce energy consumption and operating costs.

Early identification of project goals, timelines, budgets, potential problems, and solutions enables our team to be proactive rather than reactive. GPCA’s specially honed processes result in comprehensive construction documents and minimal change orders – saving our clients time, money, and stress. Moreover, we provide exceptional construction administration services which are essential to a smooth building process and a satisfactory result. GPCA can review and process pay applications, change orders, attend OAC meetings, make periodic site visits, offer material substitutions, and provide reasoned solutions to any problems that may emerge during construction. We are confident our construction administration process delivers a quality building and a seamless experience for our clients and their contractors.

We welcome the opportunity to map out a customized process for your project that is attuned to your needs and will achieve the best possible results.

“We felt as though we were a high priority with GPC Architects as they met their deadlines and delivered top notch services. The way that they performed on the job site and with the construction personnel at our project was also very professional. They worked hard and went above and beyond to support our needs in opening the doors of our new facility.”
