At DRAW Collective our mission is to expertly design specialized facilities with forward-reaching and creative solutions. We help our clients by designing facilities that matter in the lives of the people and the communities we serve together. We provide Architecture, Interior Design, and Planning Services as one of the region’s oldest and leading professional design firms. We are sized in order to allow a partner of the firm to serve our clients while also being large enough to provide a skilled and experienced group of staff members. Formed in 1945, and located at the same South Hills Pittsburgh address since 1950, DRAW Collective is a professional corporation owned by working architects. The DRAW Collective portfolio of projects is varied over our many years, but we are particularly proud of our consistency of realizing our clients’ goals in each project and product. How We Work We are passionate about the work we do. We are committed to creating great places that promote healing, inspire learning, unite, motivate, serve and ultimately enrich our region and the communities in and around the places we call home. We believe that architecture is both an art and a discipline requiring problem-solving to create facilities that succeed for our clients on multiple levels. Our designs address complex issues with expertise and offer aesthetic solutions with sensitivity, imagination and fiscal responsibility. Focusing on Client Needs We look for uniqueness in our work. We believe that each client and each project is composed of a unique set of values and variables that when considered holistically, present opportunities to form positive architectural expressions while resolving specific requirements and goals. Success for our clients has always been achieved through a collaborative delivery of experience. We listen. We involve our clients. We discuss. We respond. We succeed. Long-Term Partnerships We value our client relationships and consider ourselves a trusted partner and confidant. We continually strive to nurture these ongoing relationships by listening to what our clients are telling us, observing and learning from our designs long after they are built. Working together with building owners, we uncover the right solution that addresses both short term needs and long term goals of function, sustainability, aesthetics, and economics. Sustainable Design As a firm, we are committed to implementing sustainable design throughout our practice. Our firm’s staff of architects and designers includes LEEDTM-accredited professionals who are trained in the important aspects of green design. Sustainable design is found in each of our projects regardless of the pursuit of any accreditation or special recognition. With each project, we seek sustainable solutions as a matter of our standard design practices. We analyze options, develop strategies and build consensus to create truly healthy, high-performance environments with a goal to first and foremost reduce operational and maintenance expenses for our client over time and to maximize their capital investment.
