At Gorman & Company, we work to revitalize communities through innovative housing partnerships. As a trusted partner and respected industry leader since 1984, we specialize in: downtown revitalization, the preservation of affordable housing, workforce housing, and the adaptive reuse of significant historic buildings.
Gorman & Company routinely conducts construction and design charrettes for its new development projects. These early design meetings include architects, key contractors, engineers, other consultants, management, construction and ownership. By including many disciplines in the design phase, potential issues are ironed out on paper instead of in the field. The Architectural team brings experience in historic renovation, adaptive reuse, (preservation) and new construction to all Gorman & Company's projects. In-house architectural capability allows control over quality, design and innovation in products. Creative use of materials in artist's lofts allow residents to use their apartment as a studio; state-of-the-art features allow convenient living for residents with physical disabilities; exterior street entrances allow entrepreneurs a public access for their in-home business. In-house architecture also allows for quick decisions when unforeseen issues arise in historic renovation or the preservation of older housing structures.
The architectural division consists of staff architects and CAD technicians, as well as a large stable of nationally prominent architects with whom Gorman & Company has long standing relationships. For example, Gorman & Company has collaborated with: Andres Duany – DPZ in Miami; EppsteinUhen Architects in Milwaukee, Wisconsin; 4240 Architecture in Chicago, Illinois; Pyatok Architecture in Oakland, California; and KubalaWashatko in Cedarburg, Wisconsin.
