How many have heard the phrase “I can’t build it, it’s too expensive?” The firm of David M. White, Architect has endeavored to challenge that attitude. Since it’s inception in 1989, this company has worked with clients whose intent is to design, construct and market residential products that range from single family production homes, attached townhomes, publicly financed eldelry housing and to multi-family three, four and five story structures. They strive to meet each client’s goal: to make a profit while delivering a good quality product. To this end both David M. White, Architect and their clients have been very successful. They design projects that are functional, meet the target market, are aesthetically pleasing and can be built for the proposed budgets. It is a small firm in personnel, but a major player in the design of all types of multi-family projects.
David M. White, Architect believes that the contract documents are the primary means of communication that helps makes a successful project. Knowing how to put the information on paper leads to constructing the projects with the least amount of conflict or misunderstandings. Most of the firm's clients are contractors. The firm speaks their language and know how to design within budgets. This attention to detail makes the jobs run smoothly, a benefit to all parties involved. For the clients the proof is in the final product and for the firm, a continuous working relationship with the same client on new projects is evidence of a job well-done. See our portfolio pages for a sample of the successful projects.

In 1989 Robert received his Bachelor of Architect from Carnegie Mellon University. CAD was going to be standard practice in architecture and CMU offered the strongest education for the future of the profession. Because of his AutoCAD training Robert proceeded to work for a small firm while many firms were not hiring. This firm provided experience with libraries and a theraputic pool complex. Again due to the AutoCAD experience, David M. White, Architect hired him in 1991 for contract documents on assisted living and skilled nursing facility projects. From that point forward all types of multi-family housing has been the focus. For summer work during the college years, Robert worked in the construction field. This along with his interested in building assemblies has contributed to providing very detailed and complete construction drawings and specifications. The project details are well respected by the contractors. Recently the interest in construction components has turned towards high performance buildings. Robert is LEED AP, Building Design and Construciton ceritfied. Researching and developing practical energy efficient systems have been incorporated into the projects without upsetting the budget. Working with conscientious general contractors, a colaborative effort will acheive HERS ratings down as low as 52 out of 100. This is nearly 30 points better than the current energy code requirements. Applying current technologies to the building assemblies have provided comfortable, efficient and low energy cost projects for the clients and residents.
