People

Our greatest asset is our people. In every area of our company, we’ve brought together the best and brightest from around the Midwest to serve our clients. How do we know our people are the best? Just ask our clients. They come back to us again and again because of the trust we’ve built with them. They know we’re going to offer our expertise without egos with a commitment to fulfilling their vision by creating people-first places.

Design Collaborative was founded by three partners in Fort Wayne, Indiana, who named the company with a purpose. They didn’t name it after themselves because they knew their goal was to watch DC grow and eventually watch their staff rise through the ranks to assume leadership roles themselves. Today, DC has grown to include eight principals to lead the company for years to come.

Our administrative team is the backbone of DC. By keeping our office running smoothly, they ensure that we can always serve our clients efficiently and effectively.

DC’s architects bring decades of combined experience to every project. They embrace the opportunity to engage each client as a partner, spending time finding your unique goals, personality, and vision. Whether you’re looking to renovate a small space or build a breathtaking new structure, our team will guide you to not just simply capture your vision, but also inspire you to think beyond.

We’re always looking for organizations and institutions with architectural and engineering needs that our team can help solve. The Business Development team is always reaching out to existing and potential clients to show them that DC is the right firm for their needs.

In our opinion, architecture is more than the four walls that surround the space. Our in house interior design team wants to make sure your facility also offers those details that truly make a space liveable. Style and comfort aren’t extravagances. They’re often the crucial elements that separate a good project from an amazing project.

Since inception, Design Collaborative has had in house engineering to complement our architectural team. Our engineers specialize in discovering solutions to the problems your building is causing for you and the people who use it. Having a talented team of mechanical and electrical engineers on hand throughout your project will also prevent most last minute surprises and unexpected cost changes because they’ll be able to predict the engineering needs of a project right away.
