Creating Together Meaningful Architecture + Client Success

Who We Are

Culture-Driven Leaders + Listeners

For 50 years, our passionate team of leaders and listeners has designed award-winning facilities that make a difference in people’s lives. We honor a public trust to deliver value and beauty with every project. Our purpose is to serve clients who are building communities and to give meaning to spaces that shape our lives through innovative design.

Why Grimm + Parker?

Our company is a supportive, collaborative, equitable and profitable place to work for extraordinary and creative problem solvers. Our team exists to elevate the human spirit by providing architecture, master planning, sustainability, and interior design solutions to our various clients by anticipating and solving their problems creatively - with inspiring, value-driven results. At G+P, we are always looking for the best and the brightest to join our team. 

Our Values

We collaborate honestly with our clients, our partners, and each other to ensure delivery of a responsible, thoroughly designed product that we are proud to stand behind.

We give meaning and value to the projects we design by attentively serving clients who have a story to tell, who strive for equity, and who build whole communities one space at a time.

We are dedicated to our client's vision, pursuing as if it were our own, owning the process at every stage and making certain to listen, care, and innovate wherever possible.

We study and teach sustainable design strategies, aspiring to construct environmentally sensitive and low-carbon buildings that create a more sustainable future for our children and the planet.

We design everything together. We believe in giving back to our communities, staying involved beyond the end of construction to further serve and strengthen those who need it most.

[Grimm + Parker] are the best of the best among education, environmental and business leaders. Their commitment to breaking out of the status quo and charting new ground make them excellent examples... for future generations.

Giving Back

Together, We Change The World — One Community At A Time

We believe in giving back to our communities even after the project is complete. From teaching students about environmental literacy and building design, to working with mission-aligned non-profits and providing pro-bono services, to endowing scholarships to support the next generation of leaders — our commitment goes beyond the job because our work is never done.

Our Culture

A Culture Designed To Be Better

We know that the world is bigger than the structures we build which is why justice, equity, diversity and inclusion matter to us. We make sure that our firm reflects the communities we serve by assembling a diverse staff of future leaders. From our WBENC status (Women’s Business Enterprise National Council) to our industry-leading work in sustainable design - we are creating a firm of dynamic movers and shakers who seek to improve our profession, our communities, and our environment.

Social Responsibility

At Grimm + Parker we encourage each other to listen, learn, and lead. We recognize this by getting involved in our communities. We seek to help raise the value of design through every conversation we have with clients, consultants, students, visitors, and residents.

We also support organizations that make a difference in communities in which we work!
