Fitzpatrick Architects was established in 1986 by Steve Fitzpatrick, and has been in continuous operation for 30 years. In 1992, the firm was renamed Fitzpatrick.Butler Architects. The firm grew to become one of the largest firms in East Texas, completing numerous projects in the civic, medical, religious, commercial, and educational markets. In 2010, Steve invited five of his staff architects to become partners and returned the firm to its original name. Fitzpatrick Architects continues to provide unique solutions to a variety of project types throughout the region, offering comprehensive design services for Master Planning, Architecture, Space Planning, and Interior Design. Each project the firm undertakes is assigned a project architect who manages the project from early concept design through the completion of construction. The project architect leads a design team comprised of support staff, consulting engineers (civil, structural, electrical, mechanical, and plumbing), and any additional consultants (lighting design, audio/visual, kitchen equipment, acoustic) required by the specific project type. All 3-D renderings, code reviews, construction documents, and specifications are produced in-house by the design team.
