Our Story

Read More

ESD began building a legacy of design excellence in 1992 by specializing in meeting the unique needs of customer service-focused clients in the financial services industry. Today our professional staff of architects, interior designers and project managers continue to develop strong solutions for not only our financial clients but also a wide range of corporate, medical, restaurant and specialty use clients. To us, every opportunity represents more than a “project.” It opens the door for a long-term relationship, a chance to make a major contribution to a client’s enduring success and growth. By offering “individual design through expertise” we help clients look beyond the here and-now and consider how decisions they make today will impact their brand and their organization far into the future.

ESD has produced numerous buildings that have complied with the US Green Building Council (USGBC) which is a non profit organization promoting sustainable building design and construction. USGBC is dedicated to expanding green building practices and education through its LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) Green building rating system. ESD has LEED accredited profesionals (AP) on staff that manage our LEED.

Flexibility is a hallmark of ESD's service offerings. We can provide you and your client with a Total Architectural Service Package, or we can partner with you on individually selected services tailored to meet specific needs.

The Interior Design team at ESD is committed, to provide excellent customer service, and to create for every client, exceptional spaces that are practical, functional and aesthetically pleasing. We strive to seamlessly integrate both architecture and interior design as one cohesive design solution. Our designers work with clients to establish goals and define design elements that will best meet those goals. We tailor each and every interior to meet our clients’ unique requirements for atmosphere, attitude, functionality, branding and cost effectiveness.

Reliance Design Group (RDG) provides custom-designed Branch Transformation Elements for financial institutions. These fixtures can be” static” or “ digital” based or a combination of both. Each project is tailored to the individual needs of the clients, based on the branding, objectives, and budget.

Reliance Project Management is our construction services company.  What sets RPM apart from other project management companies? Commitment to each client’s specific individual needs. We customize our services to “fit” the unique requirements of each and every project. Our relentless pursuit of exceeding expectations through communication and organization enables us to achieve design intent, maintain budget parameters and deliver on schedule. The success of our clients growth is held as our highest precedence.
