Who we are - Our Philosophy

C&P is a nationally recognized design firm, with registered professionals in 49 states, that brings together a diverse team of planners, architects, engineers, designers, and support staff driven by the goal to understand our clients and their needs and deliver exceptional design solutions.

We do more than design buildings — we build brands and stores, interiors and exteriors, places that people experience and remember. Buildings that define and sustain the communities we live in, the businesses we work in, and the centers we shop in. Our team brings passion, purpose and integrity — elements ingrained in our culture.

With a key focus on teamwork, our solutions result from a collaborative process that encourages our professional staff across disciplines to research alternatives, share knowledge, and collaborate on a higher level to solve the challenges of what will be built.

Our projects range from restaurants to assisted living facilities, offices to grocery stores. Our work hinges on the successful integration of design, technology, efficiency, aesthetics and cost. Every client has a different need and balance for their program or project, and our teams focus on ensuring that balance is met.

Founded in 1978 / 250+ employees / 4 offices / Registered professionals in 49 states
