At Solutions Architecture, we solve a variety of problems with Commitment, Collaboration and Communication.
We are COMMITTED to our clients and to the process. Our COLLABORATION with the project team along with our COMMUNICATION throughout the life of the project yields positive results.
With Solutions Architecture you will have a single source of responsibility and one person to call for every need.
Breaking the mold of the traditional “Design Firm”, Solutions Architecture places greater emphasis on SERVICE, addressing the needs and moreover, expectations of the Client, with practical, cost effective and aesthetically pleasing Solutions.
Solutions Architecture will become your expert resource, guiding you through the needs investigation, the design process, the budgeting, the myriad of paperwork necessary for approvals, and yes, even construction!
Much of what you, the client, are looking for when it comes to the completion of your project, besides a solution for your objective needs, is to have your EXPECTATIONS met. Since there is often times a fine line between what you “expect” and what you ultimately receive, Solutions Architecture works with you to bridge any gaps so that the vision and the end result are closely aligned.
The Solutions Team is most proud of our ability to translate your needs and goals into a project that will ultimately meet your expectations, now and into the future.
Solutions Architecture is a recognized name among our peers and clients alike. A 30+ year history has brought experience with a variety of projects in municipal, educational, residential and commercial arenas including K-12 Schools, Universities, Libraries, Police & Fire Safety Buildings, Parks & Recreation Centers to name a few. We pride ourselves on providing an unparalleled level of service and attention. Our work encompasses everything from capital and maintenance projects (toilet room renovations, roofs, boilers, windows and doors) to additions and renovations as well as newly constructed buildings.
Frank is able to make a phone call and get to the appropriate people [at DOE or SDA] who can help to resolve the issues… I am confident that he will bring the leadership and guidance that will make any project a success.
Solutions Architecture has served the Bergenfield Public Schools as the district 's Architect of Record since the 2009-2010 school year. The district has been very happy with the quality of their work during this time. Bergenfield Public Schools has been able to complete several capital projects on time and under budget.
Examples of completed projects include but are not limited to toilet renovations, roof replacements, classroom renovations, HVAC installations, unit ventilator replacements, and an addition. We are very happy with the results of these projects as they have met or exceeded our expectations.
The architects at Solutions provide construction management services, providing weekly updates as construction progresses. They establish positive working relationships with the contractors. Some of the projects that Solutions has designed and managed for the district were ROD grants. They have been very helpful in maneuvering through the ROD grant administrative process. No matter what request we make of Solutions, either in project scope or deadlines, they meet our needs.
Construction projects are generally a librarian's worse nightmare, but having had the good fortune to work with Frank Messineo, and his team at Solutions Architecture, the bad dreams never came to pass.
Mr. Messineo's task was a challenging one: design vibrant rooms for Children and Teens, to accommodate the needs of 21st century patrons and house 7,000 volumes, while keeping the stately charm of Verona Library's 1923 Carnegie building intact. The results were magnificent. Frank and his team worked patiently with staff, determined our needs, anticipated requirements we had but hadn't realized ourselves, and presented a design, well within deadline, that far exceeded our expectations. Eight months after grand opening, patrons are still over the moon with our beautiful new Children's Room and Teen Room. We are now in the process of planning a major renovation, to install a much needed and long-overdue elevator that will require an 18' extension, and to bring this grand old building back to its former glory. I would only want the project in the hands of Solutions Architecture.
Working with Frank Messineo and the team at Solutions Architecture was a fun, successful and rewarding experience. Frank was able to make our vision a reality with his expertise, patience in guiding us through some very difficult decisions. I was thrilled that he was able to see the vision we had for and so elegantly leveraged the existing building in creating our "new" library. Feedback from the public has been fantastic!
I have had the very good fortune to work closely with Frank on many school projects… His apparent technical talent is further enhanced by his informative, interpersonal skills. Solutions Architecture's ability to work through solutions to our facilities concerns while always remaining vigilant to our budget concerns is but one of the reasons that he has my highest confidence and recommendation. His high degree of integrity and talent are rare commodities.
Frank’s personal attention to detail and leadership, have provided the District with a level of comfort and a sense that we know we will be “taken care of”.
Solutions Architecture is founded on the principle that personality, attention and professional, competent service, fosters more than just a client list – it brings about successful, lasting relationships. It is our belief that a fundamental role of the Architect has always been that of a “Solution Seeker” and that our goal in this business is to look at any problem as an opportunity for change and improvement.
