About Us

KMA Design Group is a small, local SERVICE BASED architectural design, planning & interiors practice that has been proudly serving Central Florida for over ten years. We clearly understand “our place” within the fabric of Central Florida Architectural Practices and won’t attempt to compete with their marketing machines. However, when if comes to what counts, having Experienced, Principal Level Involvement at all project phases, and a Dedicated Client Focused Approach, we have a proven track record of successfully out performing those same firms.

How does this benefit YOU? This ensures that you will receive experienced Principal level involvement at every phase of your project(s). Larger firms can only turn a profit on similar contracts by presenting you with inflated fees or staffing your projects with inexperienced, junior staff. This leads to problems… which lead to delays and potential change orders. The successful execution of projects depends on a firm’s ability to efficiently form a plan to create facilities in the least disruptive manner while maintaining budget and schedule.

KMA Design Group has dedicated itself to identifying clients who we feel are fair, honest and treat the professional service groups serving them with dedication and integrity. Within the last six (6) years, we have successfully completed over 31 projects for 7 different “Owner’s Groups”:

  • All Projects On-Time
  • All Projects within Budget
  • No A/E Related Change Orders

What speaks more about a professional service organizations success (and service) than a repeat client? We look forward to building a relationship with you.
