READ MORE

When our parent company (T. R. Wurster Construction Co. Inc.) was founded in 1974 as an offshoot from our Founder’s Father who was an established General Contractor in Los Angeles, our focus in construction coupled with our fixation on improving and advancing the craft pushed us to explore the boundaries of possibility. With our abilities ever increasing as a function of time, the majority of our projects over the last quarter of the century have been within the highest level of estate residences and upper echelon commercial projects in Los Angeles as a result of our relentless pace and fixation on animating the largest of architectural ideas and the most challenging of engineered solutions.

Since our projects routinely push the limitations of design, engineering, and code, it became second nature to provide coordination services commensurate to the world-class designers and clientele that we collaborate with. While improving and exploring our abilities to raise the bar on our services we began using 2D CAD in the 1990s, our technique expanded and shifted to 3D Building Information Modeling in the 2000s which we augmented with Point Cloud Laser Scanning in 2013 when this tool was still alien to the construction industry. Our skillsets continue to evolve as we keep pace and often exceed the common application of planning tools. A higher level of design requires a higher level of execution, and our application of 3D imaging equipment allows us to bring a outstanding level of service and planning ability to our clients. As of 2021 our parent company has completed more than 800 projects with a focus in the West Los Angeles area.

While our parent company was regularly engaged in design-build projects which sometimes required that we craft and present solutions from inception to completion, most often we collaborated with design teams where we found our niche evaluating designs to provide predictive analysis services in conjunction with conflict resolution recommendations. Identifying and solving problems that had not yet been discovered while proposing unique and effective solutions became a specialty which brought our Parent Company a reputation for being architectural and structural solution providers of the highest order. This design and coordination skillset coupled with our Parent Company’s staff facilitated our ability to fabricate and install wood, concrete, and metallic structures in addition to self-performing a wide variety of finishes and trade specialties. A quick look at the completed project gallery from T. R. Wurster Construction will quickly inform the stratospheric profile of the projects which we collaborated on; we haven’t seen it all, but our perspective is distinctively broad as a consequence of this widespread exposure and interaction.

In 2010 ADC began to branch off from our Parent Company taking a directional trajectory to leverage our expertise to innovate and expand our design and construction management services. Since 2010 ADC has completed dozens of built and unbuilt projects providing unique and thoughtful solutions to each situation. Working in a bespoke environment has made us limber and flexible to respond to the individual parameters of site, program, and client. Our network of trade and design partners cemented in years of shoulder to shoulder collaboration continues to provide us with all the resources we need to augment our staff with the right resource for the task when we don’t have what we need on staff. As a result, our profile continues to grow, and we are able to not only manage and design projects with uncanny precision and accuracy, we are able to predict and plan much of the work as a result of our grounding in self-performing construction operations on a daily basis for decades.

Archetype Design Collective is much more than a design partner, much more than a construction manager, and much more than a contractor. Archetype Design Collective forms a pathway to successful projects using a unique blend of collective skillsets to allocate the right resource for the task at hand. Please allow us to contribute to your success!
