O’Brien Atkins Associates is an interdisciplinary design firm that partners with our clients. We listen closely to help them successfully achieve their goals. We recognize that our clients don’t exist to build spaces, but instead aspire to make discoveries, develop products or deliver services that can help change the world. We support their objectives with creative, sustainable designs. Founded over 40 years ago, O’Brien Atkins established a core value to focus on its clients. We continue today to help our clients be better prepared for the future. To achieve this we bring that philosophy together with a diverse and talented group of design professionals who design, engineer, and masterplan innovative, collaborative and adaptable spaces for educators, inventors, makers and visionaries. Within our site you will find stories of long-term relationships and how the O’Brien Atkins Team exceeded expectations. Whether it is helping Cisco find a new way to foster collaborations, or helping researchers at Wake Forest University accelerate discoveries in regenerative medicine, or helping lead collaborative teams to design complex public projects to keep people healthier, move people more efficiently, administer justice, and encourage young scientists, these are the stories that keep O’Brien Atkins excited about making a difference every day. We invite you to explore a little further to discover more about who we are and what our passions are. And we hope this discovery will lead you to reach out to have a conversation with us, a conversation that could open new possibilities with a partner that cares about your long-term success.
