MITCHELL ASSOCIATES ARCHITECTS is distinguished from traditional design firms because we can either pro-actively direct our projects from conception through construction or step in for any critical phase. Our complete Scope of Services provides comprehensive architectural design, budget development, construction management and a real estate development knowledge-base.
