Chandler Architecture

 

William W. Chandler Architects Inc. a firm that is sensitive to the environment in which we live and in which our buildings will be built. We believe that projects must not only meet the client’s needs and requirements, but also must fit into the environment which surrounds them, whether that be inside an existing building, a heritage area of the city or in the midst of a natural area in the countryside.
We are a firm that takes our work very seriously, but we also try to have some fun along the way.

With the number of different groups involved in any project, including clients, tenants or users, architects, engineers, specialized consultants, contractors, and sub-contractors, it is crucial that everyone work together as a team.
