John Fredrickson, Architect, RA, NCARB, PMP

Founder & President

John Fredrickson has been leading  one-of-a-kind projects for individual home owners, developers, and businesses for over the last thirty years.

These projects include single family homes, upscale townhouse developments, office buildings, retail shops, big box stores as well as industrial, military, and federal projects.

As a result of owning his own design business, managing in-the-field construction projects, and serving as an owners’ representative, he has gained a rigorous understanding of all aspects of the client/contractor/developer needs and thinking through these experiences.

John earned his Bachelors of Arts from Southern Methodist University, Dallas, Texas, and his Master of Architecture from the University of Texas at Arlington, Texas.

 Serving the community is integral in John’s DNA.    While in Dallas, John served on the Dallas Landmark Committee and the Clean Dallas East organization.  Most recently, John participated in a “Teach-In”  at Wardlaw Academy presenting the fundamentals of pursuing an architectural / engineering career.
