Bennett Wagner Grody creates architecture that enlivens the human experience. As an organization rooted in design excellence, creative thinking, and innovation; we improve lives in the communities we serve.

On every level, we create authentic, artfully expressive architecture that is a product of collaboration, environmental stewardship, and continual improvement.



This team uses a more integrated project approach, in lieu of the traditional linear segregated gathering of knowledge. The more integrated approach is one that builds on contributions of knowledge and expertise from the onset.

At the core of an integrated project are productive and collaborative teams that are composed of key project participants; that are guided by the principles of trust, transparent processes, open information sharing, and value-based decision making. Utilization of full technological capabilities including the proven 3-D building information modeling (BIM), the life cycle material and systems cost analysis, and the cost control and project scheduling softwares support all team efforts.



Bennett Wagner Grody Architects specializes in partnering with clients who insist on creating memorable spaces that surprise and delight. Each project is inspired by its physical, symbolic, and economic context and draws on a broad array of social and environmental factors.

Having planned and designed technologically sophisticated public buildings that have the flexibility to meet inevitable changes, the firm’s practice encompasses the design of facilities that reaffirm the importance of the natural environment, the right scale and dimension, color and texture, temperature and light.



Bennett Wagner Grody Architects embraces what is commonly referred to as the Three E’s of Sustainability: Economy, Ecology, and Equity.

These three interdependent aspects of sustainability represent a broad and inclusive view of the challenges and opportunities faced by institutions today and are reflective of their environmental, social, and economic performance. In acknowledging the importance of sustainable design with each and every project, BWG has demonstrated its intent to acknowledge and support the owner / client goals of efficient, economic performance of high performance buildings.

The firm has been responsible for the design of Platinum, Gold, and Silver LEED Certified, Green Globes, and CO-CHPS projects for both new construction and complex renovation. Using LEED and Green Globes guidelines in determining sustainability concepts / issues that will ultimately provide the best facilities, the team welcomes each opportunity to design productive, low maintenance, and low operating cost facilities responsive to energy and environmental sustainable design principles.
