Commercial Architecture

Building Value Through Design

Urban Building Workshop’s architects work with property owners and real estate professionals to maximize the value of their existing buildings or new development opportunities.

Our Specialties Include:

Adaptive reuse

In-fill, single-family subdivision

Feasibility studies

Multi-family/residential development

Urban San Francisco renovations

Land-use and entitlements

We often start by performing a fit study or feasibility analysis to help the client determine the right program for their project. From there, our architects use their experience and creativity to design a project that meets the market, can be efficiently executed and meets the budget. On projects that require entitlements, our architects will lead the entire team of designers and consultants to successfully obtain the required approvals.

Our 25 years of construction and development experience gives us a considerable advantage in the commercial market. It provides us with real-time cost feedback, allowing us to value-engineer during the design process — when it matters the most. Plus, our vast experience in interpreting zoning codes across Northern California allows us to guide clients through a number of important design decisions.
