Patuxent Architects was founded during the recession of 1992, when Paul Kosla and Brent Hutchinson set up shop in the basement of Paul's house in Prince Frederick, Maryland. Working in a room just big enough for two drafting tables, we learned what it means to start a small business from the ground up. From those humble beginnings, we moved into a spacious 400 square foot building across from the County Court House on Main Street in Prince Frederick. With prosperous economic times, Main Street exposure, and the benefit of a developing good reputation, we soon outgrew that location and, in 1998, renovated and moved into a small bungalow at 81 Armory Road. While there, Patuxent Architects, Inc grew to include four more employees and they designed, constructed and moved into their current location at 75 Armory Road. During our growth, Patuxent Architects, Inc has had the pleasure and privilege of working with many local professionals, businesses, developers, and land owners throughout the Calvert, Charles, St. Mary's, Anne Arundel and Prince Georges county region. We realize the importance of building productive relationships with local businesses and private citizens as well ; for these relationships are what a strong, healthy business is founded on. We are a licensed professional architecture firm specializing in design and construction management services for a wide variety of clients including military, industrial, commercial, public, religious, historic preservation and private residential projects. Our services have varied from just a few hours of consulting time to complete designs for projects with large construction costs. Not only are we experts in design and construction management, but we are experienced in feasibility studies, building and zoning code review and compliance, life safety evaluation, coordination and organization of professional consulting engineers, cost analysis and project management. We are also experienced in coordinating and integrating civil, structural, mechanical and architectural elements to provide a complete engineering and architectural package. Patuxent Architects, Inc uses the latest in BIM ( Building Information Modeling ) technology to communicate ideas and information from the preliminary design phase through the construction document phase and fruition of a project. This technology is currently being used in less than 10% of Architectural firms in the United States. Our firm places great importance on conserving the earth's resources and environment. We staff a LEED AP and continue our education in this area to provide greener, healthier facilities. With over 45 years combined experience in the architectural profession, and 20 plus years of experience in the construction field, Patuxent Architects, Inc has the ability to ensure that projects conform with client's requirements and meet the latest in building and standards. In addition, our background allows us to develop a project from conception through construction, with a constant eye on cost and quality control, ensuring project costs remain within budget constraints. Our design team consists of a mix of seasoned architects and draftsmen. Together we work to give you unique and quality design - all along working with you to ensure your complete satisfaction with the end product.
