The modern era firm is an outgrowth of the practice of Jack E. Phillips, Architect, which was formed in 1963. The practice of Jack E. Phillips continued in the same offices through 1983 when the firm was changed to Phillips Associates Architects under the direction of new firm principal, Kim Phillips. At the same time, Phillips Enterprises was developed to carry out non-traditional development and management services previously incorporated under the architectural practice.
In September 1986, Phillips Associates Architects become one of the first architectural or engineering firms in the northeastern Ohio area to use computer-aided design as part of its normal design services. By 1988, the organization had dedicated itself to the use of the computer aided design system (CAD) and began producing all of its contract drawings on the computer-based system. The organization’s broad based background has permitted the firm to adapt to specific needs of our clients through related experiences in renovation, restoration or new construction. With specific and current experience in healthcare, residential, industrial and commercial development, the firm has been able to develop methods to address the needs of each specific client through our attention to their specific requirements.
Phillips|Sekanick Architects, inc. is continuously upgrading, reviewing and developing our systems and methods to attempt to assure our clients that their needs are properly addressed. Through the continued use of computer systems, the Internet, and system networking, a quality-based review is continuously monitored to enable Phillips|Sekanick Architects, inc. to meet and exceed the original goal of client service established 100 years ago.
