Over A Quarter Century of Design
Founded in 1975, Barretta & Associates offers a full complement of architectural services. Our clientele has broadened to encompass some of America’s most prominent developers and private corporations.
Yet our number one priority has always been highly personzlied service. Unlike most local architects, we help our clients control ALL phases of the building process. Using our broad spectrum of services, we tailor each program of project delivery to cover both the typical and the unique. This results in a major contribution to the project’s success.
Our multi-faceted practice spans many project types: office buildings, hotels, corporate headquarters/research development/manufacturing facilities, banks, service centers, churches, schools, municipal facilities and multi-family developments. Each completed project reflects our motto: Barretta & Associates – when quality is a priority.
Barretta & Associates take great pride in the high quality of its performance and its dedication to ethical business standards. They have earned our company a loyal list of clients that include major corporations, educational institutions, health care providers and industry members. Our firm is unique among others in the building industry because it is full service. It is able to perform the role of Master Builder (once the definition of Architect).
Our tradition of successful project completion spans over 40 years and is fueled by our commitment to fine design and structural quality. We have a multi discipline practice and are among the few firms that provide complete architectural design services, project management and construction to a client. Result? Single point responsibility in all aspects of design and design/build services.
Contribution of Barretta & Associates to The Value Chain
Sophisticated Owners, especially those with multiple projects, are always concerned about tight time schedules, budget constraints, and project delivery system details. To meet these concerns, Barretta & Associates has developed the systems required to provide a zone of comfort for its clients. Our firm concentrates on a seamless life cycle of a building from pre-design through post-construction. Our most successful projects grow out of a process wherein we help clients define the parameters of a project. We work side-by-side with our clients to help identify solutions, not just provide limited services.
