“Architectural design as a process of discovery”

GDA design & architecture, inc. is a Corporation registered with the Commonwealth of Massachusetts. Clients’ needs will be addressed through basic services and by Umberto’s ability to provide more flexible packages with additional services that can be chosen from a list of special services. Residential and, small commercial and institutional projects of all sizes, from small to large, will be considered between the New Hampshire border and the Upper Cape, and within I-495; only larger projects will be considered beyond the above area and throughout the entire Commonwealth of Massachusetts.

The following basic and special services are applicable to all building design projects for:

  • New homes;
  • Residential additions;
  • Residential renovations;
  • Small commercial and institutional projects;

All basic services are necessary for the successful outcome of every project, however, GDA design & architecture, inc. offers service 1. Programming as a pre-contractual design service. During this initial exploratory phase the preparation of a “Low Commitment Initial Consultation (LCIC)” or “Needs and Options Review (NOR)” report/study, will allow to gain a better understanding of the project scope and feasibility, before contracting the other basic services for the development and completion of the project. Special services are, instead, optional and can be added, in any number, to the basic services, depending on the scale, scope and complexity of the project, and according to clients’ wishes.
