Established in June 2000, Architectural Design Associates (ADA) provide Architectural solutions to our clients in both the public and private sectors.
ADA is managed nationally by 4 Partners, who effect a substantial combination of Design and Technical skills, and is supported by an experienced and competent team of Architects and Technologists, as well as administrative staff.
The practice has extensive experience in all sectors of Architecture, such as Retail, Commercial, Industrial, Hospitality and Transport.
ADA’s vision is one of excellence, integrity and respect. With a strong emphasis on quality design and service delivery, we aim to exceed our client’s expectations while remaining true to our core design philosophy.
Our role, within the built environment, of responsible and sustainable Architecture allows us the opportunity to exercise our passion for using an innovative approach as well as expressing our ideas for enriching people’s lives by creating exceptional spaces.
ADA has a Level 1 BBBEE accreditation and is committed to recognizing talent and skill in our previously disadvantaged groups with a view to uplifting our local community. The company is 90% owned and managed by previously disadvantaged individuals (PDI), with a staff compliment that is 60% PDI.
Skills Transfer & Development:
Staff Development is an integral part of the growth and future success of ADA, and our policy, from recruitment through to skills transfer, is based on creating a meaningful participation in sustainable development. In addition to affording bursaries and technical training to previously disadvantaged individuals, ADA provides for further development by assisting with leadership and management skills, encouraging continued academic education, promoting sound Architectural practices through the company’s practice manual and supporting contract administration seminars.
