Driven by innovation, creativity, and dedication to our clients.

Our Driggs, Idaho studio is the heart of the GPCA team’s integrative and inventive design work. Our founder and Principal Architect, Garett Chadwick, draws on his decades of experience in planning, design, and construction in the Mountain West to lead a team focused on collaboration, inclusion, and an informed design process to produce the best solutions for each project. Embracing values of open communication, inclusive processes, and passion for design, our team delivers timeless, sustainable designs that generate lasting value, enrich the client experience, and benefit the surrounding community.

OUR HISTORY

At GPCA, we’re intimately familiar with the scale and quality of services provided by larger architectural firms because we’ve been there. But we realized a key element was missing from these firms: a personal, custom, and rewarding experience tailored to each client. Since founding GPCA in 2015, our smaller size has kept us nimble and able to adapt and grow with our industry’s evolving technology to provide the highest level of service to clients with a hands-on approach. We are committed to producing timeless, sustainable designs that generate lasting value, benefit the surrounding environment, and enrich the overall client experience.

Together our crew has completed hundreds of projects from small renovations to advance technology laboratories, creating a reservoir of knowledge and incorporating the latest technology BIM that empowers us to provide exceptional service on a customized level. The GPCA team has been collaborating and creating award-winning, sustainable designs for nearly two decades. Our portfolio of work in the Mountain West region uniquely positions us to provide an array of design services for public, private, commercial, residential, and mixed-used spaces in Teton Valley, and throughout Idaho, Wyoming, and the western United States.
