MITCHELL ASSOCIATES ARCHITECTS is focused exclusively on emergency services and is committed to assisting communities to develop cost-effective, durable, state of the art facilities. This focus is supported by a depth of experience gained over 20 years in design, construction, evaluation, and renovation of fire stations, with projects involving over 160 emergency services facilities throughout the Northeast, Eastern Seaboard, Missouri, Texas and Alaska.

With a base in the Northeast and Mid-Atlantic States, Mitchell Associates serves clients locally and nationwide through collaborative arrangements with regional partners. We offer a scope of services ranging from consultant based front-end studies to full project management.

We excel in performing feasibility studies that compare renovations and additions versus demolition and reconstruction, and authored the chapter on renovation for the Fire Station Planning, Design & Construction published by the International Association of Fire Chiefs. We regularly speak on the topics of renovation and energy efficiency at regional and national fire service conferences.

Founding Principles

    Our extensive public safety experience results in knowledge-based critical thinking that creates cost-effective, innovative designs that are particularly well suited to our client’s needs.
    We actively lead our clients through a complete design process, including feasibility studies, financial planning, programming, project design, probable construction cost estimating, value engineering, financial analysis, public approval process, bidding, contract negotiations and construction administration.
    We work one-on-one with you to assure that the facility is an accurate reflection of your needs and wishes. We provide continuity of the project team so that as the project reaches completion, the ideas expressed at the beginning are incorporated.
