For more than 25 years, the Arium Advantage has allowed us to gain unique insights into the needs and goals of builders and developers, facilities managers, contractors, owners, and real estate brokers. Since our founding, our core belief has been that a solid design plus outstanding service is the key to our firm’s success.

For Arium, providing outstanding service means understanding each of our client’s unique metrics for success and aligning our services to their needs. 80% of our work is for repeat clients who use Arium for all their reoccurring design work.

To attain the highest level of project success we focus on image, value, functionality, code, budget, and schedule. Our multidiscipline studio has considerable experience executing a wide range of project scopes in our targeted regional market—billing approximately 250 clients per year, with no single client making up more than 12% of overall volume.

The best way to determine if Arium is the right fit for your project is to let us put together a customized portfolio of Arium projects and qualifications that directly relate to your project. Contact us for more information on how we can meet your unique needs.

Property & Facility Managers

Arium has a solid track record of partnering with property and facility managers to provide diverse support across design disciplines. We understand the needs and the practicalities of life-cycle system maintenance and can help our clients make informed investment decisions. This highly professional part of our client base appreciates our focus on long-life solutions, efficiency, and sustainability in our building repositioning concepts and interior designs. Our knowledge of remedial and forensic solutions is always in demand. Our systematic, step-by-step approach helps to keep fees down and quality up. We are not just architects and engineers, but business-savvy professionals who know that time is money. A key focus across our practice is meeting the dynamic regulatory codes while keeping projects on time and on budget.

Real Estate Brokers

Arium’s extensive experience working with real estate brokers allows us to quickly and efficiently develop an understanding of a potential tenant’s programmatic needs and prepare a plan that allows the tenant to visualize themselves in the space to be leased. We are often asked to do space plans for multiple locations so that tenants can make an informed leasing decision. When our integrated team is involved during leasing negotiations, we can highlight potential challenges and offer unique solutions that can close the deal with even the most challenging tenant. Arium can add value in a real estate transaction by providing the best layout possible for a tenant. Once tenants visualize their programmatic needs within an efficient and well developed layout, a closed deal often follows.


From custom residential clients to entrepreneurs, Arium recognizes the need to reflect the personal aspirations of owners. Our intense approach to communication is particularly effective in working with clients who are making a very substantial investment and wish to have a design that is a unique expression of their personal vision. We take great joy in helping these special clients build their dreams.


Arium has an outstanding track record for meeting and exceeding challenging schedules for a wide range of government clients. The greatest growth in our government tree is in our work on secure projects. Our integrated AE team has cleared resources to perform at the highest security levels required. We work directly with some of the region’s most discerning government entities and defense contractors, and are proud to have been considered one their most trusted vendors. We also routinely assist landlords with turnkey projects for agencies with highly technical infrastructure and programmatic requirements.
