The construction industry, which we are inextricably a part of can be very fickle and unpredictable. Our clients need a steady hand when things get rough, and they need more resources when things are in overdrive. Assembling a nationwide pool of affiliates and consultants allows us to ramp up when we need to and create the best team possible for each client’s specific needs.
Whether you have a large project in a single city or multiple projects regionally or nationally, our experience will serve you well. We are currently licensed to practice architecture in all 50 states and the District of Columbia and have consultants of every discipline available too. Our affiliates are located in cities around the United States and can act as a local presence where you need us to be.
Teamwork is the key. Diversity is the answer. Diversity in location, project types and the many talents of Team ONE! All of these come together to make our clients, no matter where they may be, more successful. And success is what we are all striving for.
Knowing what the process needs to be and setting it up correctly from the beginning will assure success throughout the project.
Don't let up
Pay attention to the schedule and the details along the way. Consistency is key to a timely and successful project.
Make sure it gets built the way it was envisioned. Close it out the right way and record it properly for posterity.
Our Founding Principals (and PRINCIPLES)
From the day they first met in 1978 in an Intro to Engineering class at Arizona State University and continuing to this day, Don Brubaker and Dustin Curtis have maintained a close friendship and shared a business philosophy of how an architectural firm should be run.
Don is the nuts and bolts guy and Dustin is the dreamer of big ideas. Together they strike a balance of being conservative enough to run a sound and successful business while being forward thinking enough to stay fresh and ahead of the curve.
While working at different firms for most of their early years, both eventually struck out on their own. Each ran highly successful practices for over 20 years. In 2013 they decided to combine their success into a single organization and the two became ONE!
With a Bachelor of Architecture degree from Arizona State University in 1983 and holding NCARB certification, Dustin is registered to practice architecture in 47 states and the District of Columbia. He was the Principal of Curtis Architecture from 1993-2013. He specializes in large scale rollouts, national programs and new ideas.
With a Bachelor of Architecture degree from Arizona State University in 1983 and Principal of Gilleland Brubaker Architects from 1995-2013, Don has overseen design and construction of dozens of educational and hospitality projects including high schools, elementary schools, support facilities, hotels and office buildings and focuses on the fundamentals.
