It's all about the client at Bickford & Company—that is the guiding principal. Client needs and desires are first and foremost when designing a home or rennovation because that's what it takes to capture a vision and turn it into reality.
Bickford & Company takes particular care to create plans using materials and methodologies each client prefers.

By maintaining close working relationships with home builders and subcontractors until project's end, Bickford has garnered valuable, 'from-the-ground-up' knowledge and expertise. The result is innovative and exciting—yet buildable—designs that has made for one of the busiest, most successful architecture firms around.
