Godden Sudik Staff

We believe in the power of group thinking and encourage a team approach to projects.

We listen to and feed off the thoughts and ideas from everyone involved – our clients especially. This philosophy extends within our office, fostering a studio environment drawing from our many diverse talents. We personalize the design process taking the time to understand the specific desires and needs of every client and project. The uniqueness of every project and each relationship excites us and keeps us looking forward to the next.

Every project is led by a leadership team of two consisting of a Principal and a Project Manager / Project Architect, and depending on the project size, additional team members help. Additionally, for custom clients, we employ a concierge program led by our office manager Kellie Rowan to help you navigate the process, arrange introductions with builders and consultants, and ensure total satisfaction. We believe a key part of being your architect is to make the process easy and build a lasting, quality relationship.

Design Phase

  • Design Charrettes
  • Scheduling
  • Compliance
  • Value Engineering
  • Quality Control
  • Follow-through
When desired and often with corporate clients, we hold collaborative design meetings called Charrettes specifically tailored to the project and the client. These Charrettes can add structure and accelerate the design process. Multiple design iterations, revisions and meetings are included as needed.
We strive to work quickly keeping your project on track. Generally, every 1 to 2 weeks throughout the design phase, we meet and provide updated drawings.
Compliance with all codes and community guidelines including requested revisions from review agencies and community committees is included.
We want our designs to be practical and believe that high quality and successful projects are developed by balancing the practical issues of livability, buildability and cost-consciousness with innovative design. Here, our diverse experience and relationship with Dossey|Sudik Structural Engineering yields many benefits.
A key member of our team is our dedicated Q.C. manager Mike Weigel. Together with the project leadership team, Mike helps ensure high quality and consistent project documentation.
Even when the contract doesn’t include Godden|Sudik’s formal involvement in the Construction Phase, it is our pleasure to offer a complementary “frame walk” to review the project’s design intent and resolve any unforeseen issues.
