french-associates-50-yearsOur Mission

The key to our success is client satisfaction. French Associates Inc. endeavors to produce distinctive, functional, quality architecture that fulfills each client’s individual needs, enhances the community, and challenges the members of our firm to strive for professional excellence.

Our Philosophy

The underlying philosophy which guides our team is a dedication and commitment to provide highly functional design solutions utilizing quality materials in a creative and economical manner. As architects, we strive to improve the built environment, taking pride in each of our assignments.


Over the course of nearly 50 years, French Associates has received numerous awards for architectural excellence. These honors have been awarded by our peers and/or organizations representing the users of our buildings. We are pleased to receive this kind of recognition and continually strive to provide the highest level of professional service.


The staff at French Associates attends seminars and conferences throughout the year in an effort to stay informed of current issues and trends.  Through the participation of our staff members at industry related conferences, it provides an educational opportunity as well as an introduction of French Associates and its services to current and/or prospective clients. Just as important, it gives the audience the chance to ask direct questions relative to their own circumstances.  A valuable exchange of information and ideas takes place – an exchange that can result in creative solutions and improved designs for our clients.

French Associates maintains various professional memberships and proudly sponsors a number of industry related organizations and foundations throughout the year.

Recent sponsorship’s include:
• School Administrators
• School Business Officials
• School Boards Associations
• The Council of Educational Facility Planners International (CEFPI)
• American Institute of Architects (AIA)
• Fire Chiefs Association
• Association of Chiefs of Police

Our sponsorships extend beyond formal organizations and go directly into the classrooms. Our staff participates in Career Day activities that involve sharing architecture with students who have indicated a career interest in the design field. Students are also invited to job shadow with our staff from time to time. A student comes into the office and works alongside one of our staff to get a first-hand look at day-to-day activities inside an architectural firm.
