As prime consultant, we bring along all the engineering consulting services needed for your projects. The Studio also draws upon a large network of affiliated firms and design professionals who can be utilized to provide various complementary services as required.
At ArchiFad we approach every project with a focus on aesthetics, functionality, constructability, cost, and sustainability. Our attention to details and high proficiency handling our clients’ needs with unique perspective and integrity, guarantee our projects success and smooth implementation and reflecting our client’s culture and heritage values while meeting if not exceeding all projects objectives. Regardless of their size, our projects are always delivered on time and on budget.
We facilitate our clients’ ability to give voice to their instinct and to find a common language that allows them to articulate a vision. This unique ability to help clients express themselves, taking under consideration their backgrounds, budget and time frames is one of the keys to our success.
We are cautious about our environment and we do our part preserving energy and reducing harm to mother earth. In addition to the orientation of the building and use of eco friendly materials that will be taken under consideration in the design process, we work with our consultants in recommending renewal energy systems that would highly contribute to the score points required to achieve LEED certification if desired.

Our Sustainable Approach
We practice a relatively transparent business model, keeping our clientele fully informed of the entire situation and ensure that they comprehend all aspects of the association before we solidify any commitment.
We meet or exceed each of our goals and promises; otherwise, we do not make them. We do not take lightly our commitments. Adhering to our statements and promises is not a point to be pondered at Studio ArchiFad; it is an automatic reaction.
archifad knows that architecture is more than designing buildings. We work with our clients to craft memorable spaces.
