Founded in 2007, CONNECT Architecture & Design PC offers a wide range of design services for a variety of project types. With over 30 years of experience, we have successfully designed environments that enhance the quality of life, learning and work for the clients we serve.
We understand the immense level of trust it takes to put your vision and financial investments into someone else’s hands. Therefore, we approach our work with a few simple commitments:
We take ownership in your project and engage in a highly collaborative manner.
We seek to earn your trust and respect with decisions made on your behalf.
We work for you to provide solutions that meet your needs, not ours.
We provide consistent availability and accountability throughout the process.
We leave our egos at the door so not to complicate an already complex process.
Building Condition Surveys
We can conduct an onsite review of your facilities and provide you with a written assessment of areas to prioritize for code compliance, energy efficiencies, and building system maintenance concerns.

"It was a joy to work with an architect that did not have the attitude: 'It is my way or the highway' attitude!"
Ankeny Christian Church
"Well defined plans and specs allowed us to stay on budget and have finished projects that met and exceeded our expectations!... Dan's openness to ideas, response to our requests, and ownership of our project, has been outstanding. You are very fair but firm and those qualities are hard to find today..."
