Building/Safety Codes Consultant
CEM Design has built a reputation for excellence in providing award-winning design and management solutions to hundreds of commercial and residential clients. Our primary areas of focus are historic restoration and renovation, and environmentally sustainable “green” design. While these may seem to be very different areas of expertise, we believe they are essentially complimentary. The most sustainable building conserves and reuses the embodied energy of an existing building.
CEM Design is committed to the principles providing comprehensive, personalized service; designing aesthetically appropriate, innovative projects that utilize state of the art materials and methods; and insuring that projects are completed on time and within budget. We have received several awards for our thoughtful, innovative designs, and numerous accolades for the thoroughness and accuracy of the documents we produce.
We are licensed architects in the District of Columbia, Maryland, Virginia, Colorado, and Massachusetts, and we hold national certification (NCARB). We are LEED Certified by the US Green Buildings Council, Energy Star Partners, members of Green America and the Maryland Green Registry.
Historic restoration requires craftsman with special skills and experience. Gant Brunnett Architects has the knowledge and expertise to assist your organization with all aspects of the project development including planning, condition surveys, historic tax credit applications, production of construction drawings and oversight of the restoration construction. We are regularly engaged in preservation projects that require close coordination with local and State historic preservation officials, as well as public funding sources. Our award winning portfolio includes numerous National Historic Trust listed properties, including Landmark designated buildings similar to the recently completed Clifton Mansion; the former home of Johns Hopkins.
