Overview:When we first opened our doors in 1986 our mission was to strengthen Virginia's historic communities through design. Frazier Associates has since grown to be a full-service architecture and planning firm in central Virginia. Downtown revitalization, historic preservation, urban infill and community planning continue to be hallmarks of our firm though the scope of our projects has greatly expanded. Community wayfinding signage and corridor planning are outgrowths of our original project base.
While Frazier Associates’ reputation was founded on our historic preservation and adaptive use projects, we often design for new construction projects that are responsive to community character. The firm also specializes in the planning and revitalization of Main Streets, historic neighborhoods, and corridors. A history of award-winning projects, national media attention, and a large repeat client base serve as a testament to the quality of our design and the level of our service. Since its inception, Frazier Associates has designed more than 3,000 projects located throughout the mid-Atlantic area and has been honored with more than 60 design awards.
Over the years, the firm has recruited an experienced team of architects, planners, historians, interior designers and graphic designers who share the founding Principals’ commitment to help knit communities together through design. In addition, the firm works with a variety of engineers and landscape architects in the region in order to best tailor a team for a specific project.
Staff members are professionally registered with American Institute of Architects (AIA), the American Institute of Certified Planners (AICP), the Society for Environmental Graphic Design (SEGD), and are certified by the National Park Service to work on historic projects. Additionally, several staff members have earned LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) accreditation as administered by the U.S. Green Building Council.
