Robert Parker Associates undertakes projects upon a review of a client’s needs and an assessment of suitability of the firm for proposed projects. The firm has worked with many sub-consultants in a supporting role and chooses sub-consultants to fit the needs of a particular project. Full computer aided design (CAD) services are utilized throughout its projects.

The firm is noted for providing services from project inception through to final completion of the project in all of its aspects including program development, budgeting, conceptual design, construction documents and project administration. Projects are reviewed frequently with clients to ensure that there is a match between expectations and realities of proposed design approaches.
