Community and senior centers. Town halls. Libraries. These are some of the venues where we gather, work, focus, and recreate. Our designs support the vitality of communities and promote healthy lifestyles and a sense of place. The character and heritage of each city and town is part of each of our design endeavors.


Thoughtful design can impact student and educator performance. The learning environments we create nurture a variety of learning styles, individual instruction, and group activities. Our educational work spans from preK-12 to colleges and universities. “The reason I’ve devoted my career to educational projects is the social mission: visioning and designing today and tomorrow’s high-performance learning environments where design promotes learning and social interaction in a fitting, timeless way.” – Principal Rusty Malik

Market-rate and affordable multifamily housing projects have been part of the firm’s portfolio since day one. We work with housing authorities, private developers, and a myriad of funding sources to enhance the communities where we work and live with inviting and sustainable housing options that transform lives and neighborhoods. Our designers steward their projects with budget sensitivity. They are mindful of optimizing space usage, ensuring ease of maintenance, and most importantly, providing comfortable and inviting living arrangements/quarters with a sense of community.


Improving the delivery of patient care is at the heart of QA+M’s designs. We believe successful healthcare projects are driven by a deep understanding of the flow and needs of each space. We explore functionality, accessibility, ergonomics, patient privacy, visual appeal, security, and the ability for areas to be maintained to desired standards. Our efficient and flexible solutions balance aesthetics with performance and allow for agility and future adaptations.

Our strength lies in creating functional, agile spaces that elevate our client’s core values and brand identities. Whether traditional, hybrid, contiguous, co-working, or executive workplaces, we’re adept at analyzing size, budget, culture, and future growth plans to design suitable spaces that spark productivity and people’s potential.



Preservation. Restoration. Rehabilitation. Adaptive Reuse. Whatever the need is for these buildings, they represent our shared history. Therefore, we celebrate the resources and features that tell the story of the space, preserving what is unique and irreplaceable while bringing buildings up to modern safety and accessibility standards. Our breadth of work includes historic landmarks and structures listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
