BDW areas of expertise include a broad range of design, renovation, and restoration experience, encompassing educational facilities for all levels; courthouses and other governmental institutions; health care facilities; research facilities; historic restorations; public museums; office buildings; apartment communities; financial institutions; multi-functional buildings; religious facilities; and industrial/manufacturing complexes.

The firm, on an ongoing basis, proves that quality design and service can be achieved within reasonable budgets and that a creative approach to design does not have to cost more.

A prime concern, in the design of buildings, is to create efficient working environments, while incorporating state-of-the-art technology.  BDW realizes that the functional longevity of any public facility depends on the flexibility of its systems, and therefore plans that adaptability into every project wherever possible.


BDW design emphasis is evidenced by the receipt of numerous awards for design excellence on the local, state, regional and national level, since the firm’s inception.  Additionally, the firm has enjoyed considerable publicity both locally and nationally in many recognized publications.
