Marchi and Associates has collaborated with individuals and large corporations throughout the western states, successfully completing over 1500 projects. The project types include custom homes, housing tracts, apartment buildings, condominiums, retirement housing, skilled nursing, shopping centers, office buildings, financial institutions, churches, wineries and tasting rooms, and restaurants.
We listen carefully, we explore ideas, and we deliver creatively designed buildings that respond to the client’s needs and the project’s particular setting. Over the past years, the practice has gained in-depth working knowledge on varied building types and how to deliver them successfully.
Currently we are only taking 2 to 3 projects on at a time, so our client’s gain the benefit of our full attention. Our mission is to make this complicated process as enjoyable and rewarding as possible.
