CSArch was founded in 1991 by Randolph Collins and Paul Scoville as an educational planning design firm. Today, our work has evolved to represent a diverse range of building types.

K-12 Education

Classrooms, science labs, auditoriums, cafeterias, and student common areas all have the potential to inspire imagination and promote discovery. We build consensus among school leaders and communities to move projects forward and deliver design solutions that maximize space potential while respecting the project budget.

Higher Education

Students at higher education institutions seek inspiring, challenging, and intimate learning environments that promote their personal aspirations. We help colleges and universities exceed these expectations by thoughtfully designing meaningful spaces across all chapters and channels of the student experience.

Civic + Institutional

Encompassing fire stations, libraries, museums, recreational facilities, and human service agencies, this market represents work that participates in the public realm. Our work infuses creativity and efficiency into these buildings so their inhabitants can make positive contributions to society by supporting our community members.

Corporate

Productivity is a common thread connecting every business. But what improves the productivity of one office may drain the creativity of another. Through a collaborative process with our clients, we uncover the intricacies of each business and present designs that promote employee satisfaction and overall efficiency.

We utilize the latest BIM technology to enable better collaboration and provide the necessary insights and tools to efficiently plan, design, and construct a building or space.

Building Information Modeling
BIM is integral to CSArch’s design process, serving as a shared knowledge resource during the lifecycle of a facility project. It allows our teams to fluidly convey design intent, allowing us to communicate beyond floor plans and drawings, immersing clients in the future of their buildings before construction. This results in a more collaborative environment in which all stakeholders connect and contribute in real-time.
Recognition

“CSArch has been a tremendous asset throughout this project. They assisted us in communicating needs to the broad school community and village, then worked with us to engage all stakeholders throughout the design phase.”

- Dr. Maureen A. Long, Superintendent of Schools at Menands UFSD

“CSArch had the vision and ability to properly translate our brand into our physical building. The level of attention the team showed proved they cared as much as we did about the finished product.”
- Thomas Amell, President and Chief Executive Officer at Pioneer Bank
“When people enter Thurston Hall, they don’t necessarily know why they feel the way they feel. But it’s because of the architecture, the symmetry, proportion, scale, and the clever use of bringing the outside in.”
- David Dubbelde, Ph.D, Director and Assistant Professor of Construction Management at Utica College
