Patrick G. Holder, Principal
“Atepa” is a West African term meaning Master Builder. This term encompasses the essence of what the firm represents to the partner and practicing “Master Builder”, as he believes the Architect’s true role is that of a Master Builder.
It is with this position that Atepa offers their professional services to the general public, private developers, corporate for-profit and not-for-profit clients whom require Architects willing to take on the role of the “Master Builder”, and oversee their interest from a conception of the idea (the “Project”) to the final built product. Architecture is thus practiced as a holistic art that encompasses the path from “idea to conception” – “conception to design” – “design to construct” and “construct to product”. It is with this approach that we are pleased to offer services including:
“Idea to Conception” – Feasibility Studies, Zoning Analysis
“Conception to design” – Programming, Preliminary Design, Design
“Design to Construct” – Construction Documentation, Filing
“Construct to Product” – Construction Administration, Construction Consulting
