Structura Architects is a full-service architectural firm founded in 1999.  Structura is an Akron, Ohio, based firm that provides services throughout North America.  Much of our customer base is made up of repeat business, which results in about 50 percent of our work being located outside of our home state.  We take pride in the fact that the majority our work is highly technical.  This includes knowledge of radiation, food safety (FDA and US Department of Agriculture guidelines), air quality issues, chemical requirements, hazardous materials and national life safety standards.  This requires us to have a diverse staff and strong relationships with specialty consultants throughout North America.


Our approach can be summarized with a few words: listen, engage, understand, create and evolve.  We strive to develop long-term partnerships with our customers.  By having a full understanding of their strategic goals, we work with customers on a series of tactical initiatives to most effectively address their needs.   We complete this while balancing potential impact on their business and assisting in the forecast of capital expenditures.  We often offer adaptable solutions to maintain long-term flexibility for changing business needs.

Structura collaborates with a wide range of consultants.  This provides us with the flexibility to customize each project team to best address the needs of each scope of work.  We understand the importance of providing thorough documentation and coordination throughout the course of a project.  Our goal is to convey information in such a way that our clients are comfortable with the systems and materials that are incorporated into each project.
