A CVE-Certified SDVOSB
We are a CVE-certified, service—disabled veteran—owned small business (SDVOSB) full-service architecture firm specializing in the design of institutional, government, and other public projects. We are located in Connecticut, Maryland, Minnesota, Ohio, Texas, and Virginia and founded with one primary concept in mind: improving the lives of the men and women who serve this country.
It is our belief that a collaborative group of highly experienced architects operating with a shared set of values can provide an exceptional level of customer service. At the center of our firm’s culture is a fundamental understanding that we are only successful when our clients, consultants, and contractors are successful.
At CB Design Group, we believe that architecture and design have the ability not only to create beautiful environments for people to work and live, but the ability to shape our lives. Architecture has an extraordinary power that touches every aspect of our daily experiences for the better—by fostering interaction, offering comfort and healing, encouraging discovery, and bringing joy to people’s lives. Done thoughtfully, it can enhance our lives and be a source for inspiration.
We are passionate about creating functional, memorable places and understand the responsibility that comes with that. Our collaborative process with the client and consultants ensures that the design process is a smooth one by identifying the goals of the stakeholders, incorporating technical requirements, and closely adhering to project budgets and schedules. We recognize that each client has entrusted us not only with their specific project but with the wellbeing of those who will use their facility for years to come.
As the link that connects architecture to the user, interior design has a powerful purpose. Interior environments and the people who inhabit them form a symbiotic relationship. Only when people engage with their surroundings can a space fulfill its intention. CB Design interior design connects with the user at a personal, tactile, and experiential level, transforming spaces into places that become a haven for people to heal, work, and a venue for discovery. Interior design brings purpose to a place.
Our in-house life safety/code experts work closely with the design team from the first phases of conceptual design through construction. This provides timely, cost-effective, and value-added solutions that mitigate budget and schedule risk. As a result, our projects are better coordinated, code compliant, safer, and more functional.
Our staff is uniquely qualified to provide comprehensive CA services that cater to our clients’ needs and budgets. Our staff has the experience both in design and construction that ensures every project is being constructed according to the contract documents and following the design intent. With a collaborative process we provide our clients expert representation while keeping lines of communication open between the design and construction team. CB Design Group provides supervision and related services to coordinate projects with owners, design professionals, and contractors to help facilitate their successful and timely completion.
Broad Experience and a Proven Track Record
With more than four decades of combined experience working for one of the DC metropolitan area’s top 15 architecture firms, the founders of CB Design Group have a strong understanding of the opportunities and challenges that exist when designing public architecture. The owners of CB Design Group have more than 70 years of combined experience in all aspects of the design and management of complex public projects.
We have a proven track record of projects designed and constructed within the owner’s budget, delivered on time in accordance with the owner’s schedule and with little–to–no construction change orders resulting from design issues. We are proud to be entrusted by our clients as good stewards of public funds and take this role very seriously as we work with the team to develop the design and documentation.
