About Us



Over 40 years of professional experience and remarkable quality.



our story

Worley Associates, an architectural firm established in 1978, provides pragmatic and environmentally responsible design solutions to the specific needs of our clients.  The firm has been recognized for quality of professional services by regional and national design awards for various business, educational and wellness projects.

In addition to creating dynamic spaces that are both welcoming and enjoyable, our firm utilizes exceptional technical experience to influence all design decisions. This expertise originates from our founder’s early experiences with his family’s commercial construction company and it continues to be a cornerstone of the firm’s architectural practice.

Our architects take great care in the thoughtful detailing of design documents, ensuring they are constructible, sensitive to budget, and responsive to the needs of our clients.  This process delivers creative designs with pragmatic constructability.

We strive to build lasting relationships with our clients, consulting engineers and construction contractors to foster an enjoyable, collaborative process for all. The vast majority of our work history has been for repeat clients – a strong indication that Worley Associates is consistently providing high-quality, responsive professional services.

“Over our 30-year history of working with Worley Associates we have found that their design solutions and professional services have passed the most important test of all… time. This is attributed to the personal, hands-on experience of your architects - this aspect of your design and construction coordination practices have been priceless in our two firms working so successfully together.”

Brent Graves, Principal Taylor & Parrish Construction
