LYDON ASSOCIATE provides excellent research, planning, design, construction management and real estate consulting services to commercial, institutional and high-end residential clients. To ensure that our clients receive the full benefit of our partner's experience every project is managed directly by a partner in the firm. That close relationship between us and our clients ensures that the best possible solutions are developed and implemented to satisfy our clients needs.

Our extensive experience in the complexities of historic preservation, restoration and adaptive reuse in addition to new construction provides us with the ability to master challenging projects. Our projects are often located in urban areas where the needs of our client must be fit into complex webs of zoning, landmarks, transportation, energy use, environmental and other regulatory directives while at the same time developing efficient, elegant and cost effective designs. These complexities delight us.

We will satisfy all program requirements elegantly within the confines of the budget and existing conditions no matter how confining. No heroically expensive or complicated solutions are acceptable - every solution is carefully considered for reasonableness and buildability within the context of the local construction environment.

Often the best answer to meeting our clients needs involves much more than simply building their way out of a problem. Taking a broad view of the issues under consideration the design may include changes in operations, management and program to more effectively meet the real needs. All of our institutional and most of our commercial clients rely on our guidance and advice on facilities operation for years after the completion of the construction project to ensure that they continue to be operated in a manner which minimizes expenses and protects the investment they have in their physical plant.

We believe that there is a direct relationship between the thought, patience and craft of hand drawing and the quality of the design. Solutions are crafted not produced and the art of drawing reminds us that hands and brains will be building our ideas. Often contractors and craftspersons recognize that connection and respect our work with work of equal dedication.

Large projects requiring many overlays and the ability to email drawings between many consultants are produced on Auto CAD.

Recognizing that our skills can be invaluable to improve communities 30% of Lydon Associate architectural design and consulting services are provided to various organizations either at no cost or with substantially reduced fees.
