Why Choose Allen + Pepa Architects? 

You Work Directly with the Principal of the Firm

Architectural design and permit documentation require a detailed understanding of the clients' needs, clear solutions for resolving complex code issues, and definitive detailing of the project for contractors. A&P prides itself on our Client interface and high quality contract documents.

"Connections throughout Kane County"

Our individual firms started around 2000 and merged in 2007. Lane and Eric's architectural work grew out of our personal relationships with the Fox River Valley communities and within Kane County, IL. We have grown used to working with Clients and Code Officials in many other cities, counties, and out-of-state projects. 

"Great Staff"

All of our staff have many years of experience and are well-trained to expedite all aspects of the work, from design, detailing, and through construction.

"BIM is Awesome"

Our implementation of 100% Building Information Modeling (BIM / Revit software) allows more comprehensive and detailed solutions to complex projects as well as quick project turn-around. Quality Control is enhanced because we are in Revit. In our Zoom meetings, we prefer to have the Client see the 3-D design and detailing of the project, which helps the client relate to the work effort. 

"Architecture is a Team Sport"

By collecting consensus with the Client, Engineers, Zoning and Building Department Officials, and Contractors, we can make sure the client's vision is brought to life more successfully. Preparation for meeting with up-to-date drawings, agendas, meeting minutes, etc. are important ways to expedite this process.

"The Power of the Line"

Eric and Lane were trained in the early 80's and are exceptional at hand sketching. This allows for constructive client meetings and attractive drawings that are part of the "fun" of architecture. 

"Great Architecture is Local"

All of our staff are exceptional at hand sketching. This allows for constructive client and contractor meetings. Sometimes, a quick 2D and 3D sketch can answer complex questions and can be understood better than hardlined drawings.
