About Us

Richard R. Brown Associates was established in 1985, as a full service, architectural, interior design, and planning practice. RBA is licensed in over 30 states, and has provided services throughout the United States and Mexico.

The firm excels in a diverse cross-section of project types, including corporate and governmental workspaces, hospitality projects, medical facilities, retail/lifestyle centers, high technology, and multi-family living environments. Throughout the tenure of the firm, RBA has assembled an expanding knowledge based around design innovation, project delivery, advances in construction technology, and cost/value analysis.

At RBA, we have found that our clients are best served when we can operate as integral members of the team. Our drive to provide quality service, combined with our experience-based ability to anticipate and avert problems, have earned the respect of our clients and peers.

The success of our work with both corporate and governmental clients illustrates our ability to efficiently provide effective pre-design, design, and construction administration services on a national basis. Our projects are designed to create value, support work performance, and deliver cost-effective solutions targeted to our clients’ goals.
