Our Story

Read More

Gauthier, Alvarado & Associates was founded on the principle that interaction between architects and engineers, working together on an equal basis and under one roof, leads to the most effective planning and implementation of construction programs. Teamwork and close interaction with users, employing the best talents of each of the contributing members, is the basis for meeting clients’ needs. The firm combines the various professional disciplines needed today in meeting the simplest to the most complex assignments. The firm’s principals and associates represent a cross-section of the major technical disciplines required for a project: ArchitectureMechanical,ElectricalStructural, and Fire Protection Engineering. The firm has a proven record of 40 years of multi-disciplined practice.

Principals and key personnel are registered professionals with extensive records of competence and effectiveness and actively participate in all projects. We have established a solid record of design excellence through consistent performance on the planning and implementation of buildings of lasting aesthetic and functional quality. This record has been established in various localities throughout Virginia, District of Columbia and Maryland.

The multi-disciplined composition of the firm facilitates competent and integrated input throughout the design and review process. Additionally, the multi-discipline nature of the firm, allows us the flexibility to combine a variety of services based on the specific needs of a project.

Due to the length of time this multi-disciplined group has worked together, we are able to understand and assist each other with solutions to problems that may arise outside of our individual area of expertise. This ability, combined with the longevity of the professional relationships and the strong talents of the core group, gives us the ability to work in close cooperation with users and contractors.

The firm’s capability of providing total in-house A/E services is particularly beneficial for projects with a high demand for coordination of the building systems, in-depth surveys of existing conditions, and strict requirements for phasing of construction. Our technical capabilities are supported by the recognition of the significance of local construction practices, materials and construction technology.
