Architectural design is at the heart of what MDG does.
Though our concentration is primarily in the commercial, tenant improvement, adaptive reuse, and industrial design sectors, we have a broad spectrum of expertise.
To us, architectural design is the process of translating your ideas and needs into a real, usable form.
As masters of the design-build model of architecture, our process takes into account not only the building’s design and components, but also the schedule, cost and the user’s needs and wants.
Master planning offers you as the owner or end user a comprehensive plan that incorporates strategic placement, size and scale, as well as proximity and functional relationships.
We use this information to develop the “big picture” relationships, either of a single building to its site, or of a campus with multiple buildings.
With the need for future expansion or remodeling in mind, MDG can provide a framework that incorporates the project’s past, present and future into a cohesive whole.
At MDG, we believe that interior architecture is a significant aspect of any structure. A building’s interior flow, feel, and function are primary concerns to our designers.
As a firm driven by the design-build model of architecture, our interior designers have the advantage of working closely with our architects from start to finish.
The result? Finished spaces that look incredible and function flawlessly.
Any successful design is grounded in a thoughtful, thorough, and strategic design intent.
Through the design intent process, the team at Mollenkopf Design Group will translate your desires and visions into documentation that outlines prescriptive, measurable information and conceptual design.
You, as the owner or end user of a project, can use this information for budgeting, fundraising, preliminary regulatory agency review, and more.
Having a third party inspection is an invaluable way to ensure conformance to a project’s architectural and engineering specifications.
MDG’s breadth of experience and professionalism allows us to objectively assess your project’s construction progress.
Whether it’s verifying that the construction adheres to the plans and specifications, or ensuring that the contractor’s request for payment is appropriate, our seasoned staff of professionals is here to help.
Are you planning to reuse an existing structure for a new project, or alter an existing space? An existing facility assessment can help in either case.
At the Mollenkopf Design Group, we break existing facility assessments into two categories — Program Assessments, which analyze how a building is contributing to or hindering the intended service or program, and Facility Condition Assessments, which identify the physical properties and systems of the building.
We can help assess any facility, decipher what local, state, and federal codes and laws,
determine the integrity and availability of infrastructure and building components, and help you understand what’s possible for a given structure.
Facility programming, undertaken in the pre-design phase, can help finalize objectives, articulate building and user requirements, establish a total building area, and set an accurate scope of work.
Our team understands that each company and each facility is unique. As an unbiased third party, the Mollenkopf Design Group can help you determine the best use and layout of your existing space or building.
By analyzing the flow of data, products, and information we can present solutions that will maximize your facility’s spatial flow.
When you need a job done right, but can’t be there yourself, the Mollenkopf Design Group is your go-to representative.
Whether in the office, on a jobsite, or virtually anywhere in between, we have the knowledge and experience to advocate for your interests every step of the way.
Our expert staff will implement your program, keep you up-to-date on the project’s status, and provide oversight and managerial experience you can depend on.
An RFP (Request for Proposal) is a solicitation sent to potential suppliers with whom a creative relationship or partnership is being considered. An RFQ (Request for Qualifications) is an evaluation sent to potential suppliers to confirm their capability of fulfilling the requested services.
Both RFPs and RFQs adhere to strict guidelines, making oversight in their preparation vital. The Mollenkopf Design Group’s staff of qualified Architects can help you prioritize and qualify prospective providers of design, engineering or construction services.
The Americans with Disabilities Act is a federal regulation that requires our built environment to be accessible to everyone.
We at the Mollenkopf Design Group are trained to review and provide assessments of the existing built environment.
Our services range from an overall assessment based on a brief run-through of your facility, to in-depth specialized assessments of your property.
