With over 35 years of architectural experience, our referral based firm has demonstrated a blend of creative professionalism and technical skill on commissions ranging from distinctive single family homes to large commercial developments and national corporate consulting.
We see each client relationship as a unique opportunity and a challenge – to create timeless integrity with appropriate style.
We work closely with our clients during the 3D virtual design process to assure that all of their dreams and programatic needs are met.
Each of us is defined by the spaces we inhabit, their materials and aesthetic forms, the expressed distillation of our desire for comfort, function and beauty.
An accomplished architect must be a patient listener to creatively respond to the client’s personal aesthetic. Good design continues throughout construction, with each element serving to define and illuminate the concept as a whole. Our team consists of a variety of engineering consultants to design a structure that will withstand Hawaii’s demanding environmental conditions. We do not complete the design process until the client is abosolutely thrilled!
Each project demands careful design, practical solutions to difficult situations, thoughtful selection of contractors and use of the best materials the budget can support. Cost estimates are most accurate when the Contract Documents and Specifications are complete in every detail.
Planning for the overall site and the design/construction process is critical. Comprehensive knowledge of codes and zoning, with a clear understanding of Hawaii’s construction means and methods is essential to successfully create architecture in Hawaii. We provide full architectural services from the initial site selection & preliminary planning analysis, through the design, construction documents, bidding, permitting, construction, interior design, and final occupancy.
The Construction Documents are essential to the execution of good design. They must be well drawn, precisely written and complete in every detail. Our firm performs all services with Computer Aided Design and Drafting (CADD) systems with three dimensional fly through modeling capabilities.This allows us to design in real time with our clients online, using the AutoDesk Revit program.
Because we have personally developed a number of commercial and residential projects, we understand and can respond to the owner’s need for economy, flexibility and marketability from conception through occupancy. Long & Associates has purchased and developed a number of exclusive premier properties and subdivisions throughout the Hawaiian Islands.
Long & Associates provides Hawaiian Architect of Record and Observation services for our Mainland corporate clients.
