Founded in May 2010, in the midst of the most devastating economic downturn in modern history by Derrick A. Adams, The Adams Design Group, LLC (ADG) is an African-American owned and operated architecture firm that provides a wide range of services including traditional architecture, interior design, master planning and programming, facility management and assessment, design consultation and construction administration services for a diverse clientele.
Since becoming a full-time professional in 1990, Derrick has worked on and worked with a vast array of project and client types including corporate/commercial, institutional, industrial, hospital/health care and medical, community and faith-based, recreational, federal, and military projects. This diverse background enables the ADG to provide and serve both public and private clients with responsive service and quality design.
From its inception, the ADG has focused on establishing solid relationships through strategic partnerships and by providing the services needed to serve an increasingly diverse clientele, even if the services are non-traditional for most architects.
Derrick founded the firm on the belief that the practice of architecture is not only a vocation which delivers a product, but a service as well. Architects are problem solvers above all else, and architects solve problems that exist within the natural and created environments that surround us as we interact within those environments.
