Grimm + Parker Architects is a diverse group of over 100 talented, dedicated designers committed to community architecture. We have four studios located throughout the region: Calverton, MD; Baltimore, MD; McLean, VA; and Charlottesville, VA. We have been successful in building our practice by “doing good deeds” for our clients, our communities and ourselves.
We are well known for our collaborative design process and bringing scaleable community engagement tools and expertise in facilitation. Stakeholders have the opportunity to give their input directly to us as designers and we incorporate their ideas and concerns as we develop design solutions unique to your project. Our goal is for all the key stakeholders to feel like they have made a contribution to the design process and have been a part of developing the best possible design solution.
We oversee complete project development for our clients, from design and written programs, through contract documents, construction, project closeout and post-occupancy evaluation. Our experience uniquely qualifies us to deliver the full range of services for:
• Master Planning
• Fundraising Efforts
• Programming/Educational Specifications
• Feasibility Studies
• New Construction
• Sustainable Design
• Building Information Modeling (BIM)
• 3D Renderings and Visualizations
G+P is committed to exploring the latest sustainable design practices and implementing green design strategies. We've been involved in design for energy conservation since the early 1980’s and have won awards for our innovative designs, before USGBC and LEED were established. We have won ENCOMP Awards for energy and environmental conservation and Smart Growth Awards from the Governor of Maryland.
More than 50% of our technical staff are LEED APs and we've led 30+ projects to LEED certification. We know what works today and we know what’s next, “beyond LEED.”
