Bacon Commercial Design partners with Private, Commercial and Governmental Clients to develop Architectural Design Solutions for Custom Building Projects.

IMAGINE * PLAN * BUILD    (Read more. . .)

Every Construction Project is just an idea in the beginning.  Ideas about how to grow, better manage inventory, enter new markets, change an organization’s image, or increase productivity are all good places to start.

With our Clients, we grow these ideas into building plans that meet their business needs, respect their budget, treat limitations as opportunities, and express their vision.

“We can throw stones, complain about them, stumble on them, climb over them, or build with them.”   -William Arthur Ward

Think of the Architect’s services as the creation of instruction manuals for building one-of-a-kind buildings, perfectly suited to each client; written in the language of builders and permit reviewers.
In practice since 1972, Bacon Commercial Design has seen practically every situation facing other small businesses wishing to undertake a building program. Every program is different–each client requires a different level of service. BCD will help you determine what level is appropriate for you at the very earliest stages.
Any construction program may need all, some, just one or just one part of the services BCD provides:


The right time to call the Architect is when it seems much too early in the project to call the Architect.

Just thinking about a potential project can be overwhelming, especially if your organization has never been through it before. The best way to start is by talking to someone who has. Give us a call or drop us an e-mail.
