Our Philosophy

Our current economic conditions require efficient, cost conscious solutions that never cut corners in the design department. Gone are the days of budgetless projects with no time-table to hinder the design process. R.A. Van Der Heyden always provides timely service at the right price.

Each and every client is important and receives a permanent contact person from the start of the project until project completion. You will never be handed-off to someone new and unfamiliar with your project.

Our design solutions will always reflect YOUR wishes and dreams, not the ego of the architect. Poor solutions will be avoided and illegal elements are never considered. An experienced designer will guide you from the conceptual phase all the way until your project is finished. Avoiding the pitfalls of bad design and non-code compliant elements of construction is a mandate
