SERVING OUR CLIENTS

Superior Quality - Excellent Client Support

We do what is needed to maintain our level of excellence in any project we are part of.

We are very fortunate to have great clients. The way we keep these clients is with our passion for supporting them in any way we can. Our profession as architects requires a lot of oversight and constant visits to our project locations. We know our clients need us there. To address this, we opened four offices to better cover NY state and beyond.

Our downtown Rochester office, located in High Falls Area is located inside an old mill building we chose to remodel. This resulted in a prestigious design award for the SEI Team.

In Albany, our offices are located in Wolf Road which also has easy access to all our projects on the Eastern side of the state. Our offices in Binghamton and Syracuse facilitates the management of our projects in the Central region of New York.
