about the firm

About RWA
Roger White and Nigel Francis established the firm in 2007 after having worked together in a large downtown architects. With the addition of Milton Kiehlbauch in 2012 we have expanded our knowledge base into green, sustainable design, energy and building systems controls and the incorporation of cogeneration and geothermal energy production into projects.Since starting we have built a portfolio incorporating a broad spectrum of commercial, retail and industrial buildings, multi-family residential and custom homes.


Ultimately our goal is to create high quality buildings, appropriate to their settings while at the same time being extremely functional and energy efficient.


Philosophy
Good architectural design is an important ingredient in the urban landscape. It affects not only those people living and working in the building, but also those passing by. It does not need to cost more to build, but will have a big impact now and in the future.


Client Participation
To ensure our client’s needs are satisfied we constantly invite our clients to participate and provide input during the design process. After all it’s our job to make our client’s ideas a reality.


Creativity
Creativity is achieved through a combination of our architectural collective, as well as the input obtained through brainstorming sessions with the client. This collaborative approach ensures that we understand a clients needs and exceed their expectations.


Style
The style of our buildings are as unique as our clients. With each new client a new dream becomes reality. Expect style, class and functionality that will not fade time.


Responsibilty
As typically the prime consultant for a project it is our responsibility to assess whether sustainable/green architectural practices can be incorporated into a project without having a significant impact on the budget. It is important that ispart of the design from concept, and not added on at a later date. In most cases it can be can be integrated with positive results for all those involved.


Professionalism
We maintain a consistently high level of professional care and responsibility in each job. We guarantee all of our work to be of the highest quality, as we know our clients would expect nothing less. Your project is our project.
