Our philosophy is that successful projects require strong design and effective execution.

Many architecture firms are skilled in either creative design or project management, but few excel in both. That’s where we differ. In other words, the MDALLP team believes that product and process are equally important. Through every phase of a project, we integrate aesthetics into the practical demands of budget and schedule, providing a comprehensive service that connects ideas to results.

History

Montroy DeMarco Architecture LLP was founded in 1990 by Daniel Montroy, AIA. In 2005, with demand for the firm’s style of service growing, Daniel joined forces with fellow NYIT graduate Richard J. DeMarco, AIA. A veteran architect who was then an associate partner at SLCE Architects, Richard enabled the studio to expand its new buildings practice. Today, as Montroy DeMarco Architecture LLP, the firm employs over 35 person staff consisting of architects, designers, project managers and support and continues to expand.

Sustainability

As a member of the U.S. Green Building Council, Montroy DeMarco Architecture is a strong supporter of the organization’s mission:   “To transform the way buildings and communities are designed, built and operated, enabling an environmentally and socially responsible, healthy and prosperous environment that improves the quality of life.”

In keeping with this objective, we offer a wide range of services related to sustainability in general and specifically to LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design), the Council’s green building rating system. These services include guidance for and achievement of LEED CI (LEED for Commercial Interiors) and LEED NC (LEED for New Construction) certifications; recommendations on green materials, furniture, finishes and lighting; and consultancy on and creation of sustainable designs.
