Three Service Categories

 

Chris Nugent head shot

Created in mid 2002, we started our independent practice with referrals from our Architect mentors and through professional referrals. Starting with residential additions, large renovations and several new homes, we quickly grew to take on larger more complex custom jobs and doing large-scale subcontract work for a number of Architects across BC.

Today, our Adaptive Design Team operates much like an architectural firm, we run two satellite offices where our staff of residential designers are made up of degree or diploma holding Architectural Technologists, Intern Architects and draftsmen.

After nearly thirteen years of successful practice entrenched in project of all scales, extensive experience working for Architects and a growing practice of professional referrals and individual homeowners, Adaptive Design has become a popular choice of all types of individuals looking for residential and commercial design, drafting and documentation services.
