Founded in 1979, STRAND and its staff offer our collective extensive experience in projects of diverse typologies and genres delivering architectural, planning, design, interior design, structural engineering, and related services to its clientele from our Dallas, Texas office. 

Our client centric focus with a company foundation of service, ethics, and integrity defines our commitment to excellence.  Our mission to fully understand the business model of our client and of the project allows us to advocate for their interests as our own and when combined with function, an inspirational aesthetic, efficient structures, and sustainability, successful projects where people live, work, and play emerge. 

We offer our integrated and collaborative design expertise and experience in order to deliver projects focused on the client relationship, based on their expectations, goals, and strategies, to deliver transformative design solutions allowing our clients to compete in today’s global economy.

We are committed to delivering the highest Ethic of Design through the highest Ethic of Service for every project, every client, every day.

Our legacy is rooted in the specialization in post-tensioned concrete foundation design, when our Founder, Mr. Richard Martter, a pioneer in the field, designed the first post-tensioning anchors which are still widely used today.  Since that time, we have grown to offer fully integrated architecture, planning, design, interior design, structural engineering, visualization, sustainability and energy compliance, surveying, materials quantification, and structural inspection services.  

We hope that you will appreciate the vast diversity and quality of design and engineering that is a direct result of not only function and site environment, but of client vision and market placement. 

Our legacy, combined with the ever changing and growing needs of our clients, guides our growth as we position ourselves to service their project needs delivering fully integrated project design solutions.

We build relationships – not projects. The result of this commitment is a client base that endures over time for multiple projects of any type anywhere in the world.
