Established in 1982, by David W. Pickard Jr., AIA, PE (1933 - 2013) Pickard Architects is a California based architecture and engineering firm. The firm has completed more than 1,200 projects over the last 33 years. In addition to traditional architecture and engineering services, Pickard provides construction management, project management, and entitlement services. Providing award-winning architectural and engineering services for public and private clients, the firm has developed an extensive design portfolio in both the public and private sectors. The Firm's work includes both new and remodel projects, and free standing and interiors/tenant improvement work. Pickard's resume of projects is quite diverse, as the Firm has never focused solely on any single project or client type. Rather, Pickard has developed a very broad and diverse project and client resume. Representative examples of the Firm's work can be found on the Portfolio page on this website.
Pickard Architects is committed to a team approach and attention to detail throughout each project. Individual contributions are encouraged, enhancing exploration and resolution of the issues at hand. It is our practice to re-evaluate the Client's functional program, project values, and financial criteria periodically as the Design Team continues through the design process. "Up-front" conceptual engineering of systems and architecture, along with order of magnitude cost estimates provides opportunity for early evaluation of alternative systems and design approaches.
