About Us

THE FIRM

SIEGAL / TUOMAALA ASSOCIATES, ARCHITECTS AND PLANNERS, INC. was established in 1966, the successor firm to LEONARD G. SIEGAL ASSOCIATES, originally founded in 1954.

We have assembled a creative, experienced and diverse team of architects, planners and support staff capable of executing a wide range of new and renovation projects.

We have developed a knowledgeable management team with proven entrepreneurial experience which is reflected in our VALUE ADDED approach to each project.

We are a small business with large capabilities.

OUR APPROACH

We approach each and every commission with talent, enthusiasm and teamwork.

Every project is performed with a principal in direct charge, who will be with you throughout all phases of the work, and will assure that our services are personal, comprehensive and thoroughly coordinated.

We draw from a roster of professional consulting engineers and other specialists selected to provide the best qualified team for your project.

NO PRECONCEPTIONS & SUSTAINABILITY

We approach each and every project with an open mind, whether or not it represents a highly familiar or entirely new building type.

It is your project and your investment. We will take the time to understand your needs, your budget, your site and the community in which you are building. You are entitled to no less.

SUSTAINABILITY

We strive to reduce the overall environmental impact or “footprint” of your project. While balancing client needs and budget, we embrace a pragmatic approach to sustainable design, constantly seeking to improve living and work environments.

As proponents of sustainable design, our staff and consultants include LEED accredited professionals.

We recognize that a full LEED certification may not be an achievable goal for every project. As an alternative, we have established the GREEN BUILDING AND SUSTAINABLITY GROUP, a team of construction professionals that can help clients analyze, evaluate and incorporate sustainable design into their new or existing facilities.
