For us, planning a space goes far beyond the design process. We get to know our clients’ business like it was our own. We listen to our clients needs, and stories, to design spaces that inspire, innovate and influence. As a result, we deliver excellence that propels our clients and the communities they serve to succeed.

PRA Strategic Partners

We partner with engineers, specialty consultants, construction managers and contractors to ensure our clients are fully served, regardless of the location or special conditions. Partnerships may last beyond the needs of a single client or project. Those relationships are the result of complimentary services that benefit the client and are borne by the mutual respect and support forged from the work done on many projects. These relationships exist to provide continual support to past clients and to ensure unique services to enhance projects of future clients throughout the nation.
