Trautman Associates’ architects and engineers provide multi-discipline, fully-integrated design solutions for our clients from our office in Buffalo, New York. Founded in 1956, most of our clients are repeat customers. Our longevity is a testament to the quality of professional services we provide.

SERVICES. By offering a full range of professional services under one roof, we are able to coordinate effective solutions across disciplines. Our experience ranges from the “nuts and bolts” of mechanical systems to design problems of increasing complexity. We approach each project as a blend of art and science – ensuring that the built solution meets your expectations. Our in-house design disciplines include:

  • Architectural Design
  • Building Systems Engineering
  • Civil/Structural Engineering
  • Interior Design
  • Planning
  • Sustainable Design

DESIGN APPROACH. When it comes to design, one size does not fit all. Knowing that every project is unique, we listen carefully and evaluate your project holistically to anticipate and answer critical questions specific to your project. We then design solutions using the right combination of tried-and-true and new technology to deliver a project that functions as needed within cost and schedule parameters.

CLIENT CENTRIC FOCUS. Because we value our relationships with our clients, we establish single point of contact accountability to ensure effective communication and project development and execution. Usually one of the firm’s principals, this single point of contact remains constant as new projects develop, providing you with consistency and direct access to decision makers who are able to commit the firm’s resources to your project.

OUR TEAM. We maintain a consistent staff of about 40 professionals, with a well-rounded blend of licensed architects, professional engineers, young designers, and emerging technicians. This blend assures our clients have the right level of expertise at the right price point to provide design that is both responsive and cost effective.


Our diverse staff, use of state-of-the-art systems, and proactive client relations affords us the opportunity to provide successful, high-quality, integrated solutions that exceed expectations.
