Locally owned and operating in Buffalo's historic Allentown district, Trautman Associates architects are leading the sustainability effort, aspiring to cultivate core values of growth and prosperity within and among communities. Recognizing our local knowledge to be an invaluable asset to enhancing the quality of life rooted in the rich historical tapestry of Western New York, we are committed to the advancement of sustainable solutions to the built environment. From state-of-the-art educational facilities to energy efficient office buildings, from repurposing and adaptive reuse projects to the emerging vitality of Buffalo's waterfront, innovation is the thread that binds our designs.
In the practice of collaborative innovation, we balance creativity with pragmatic ingenuity, viewing every project as a unique opportunity to recast old ideas in new possibilities. With all design disciplines in-house, we are better able to integrate mechanical, electrical, plumbing, structural and infrastructural systems to achieve high performance functionality and modern architectural aesthetic. This integrated-systems approach results in increased energy efficiency, reduced operating cost, and minimized carbon footprint. Trautman Associates architects have received numerous awards from the American Institute of Architects (AIA), Preservation Buffalo Niagara, American School and University, and the United States Green Building Council (USGBC) and we look forward to continued success in prospect of a bright future for the city, its waterfront, and its local communities.
