Our principles

Through word of mouth and repeat business, we’ve built a reputation for superior service. We value that reputation and work very hard to maintain it. 

Our Services

+ New Construction

+ Renovations

+ Historic Preservation

+ Multi-Family Residential Housing

+ Senior Living Facilities

+ Affordable Housing

We provide full service architecture from project inception through completion of construction. We pride ourselves in delivering to the client a well thought out, beautifully designed building without the ego you find with many larger firms. We specialize in renovations and new construction of multi-family housing, but are comfortable with other building types as well, particularly single family residences and charter schools. 
Miner Feinstein understands that the agency funding an application is the initial step to developing a great project. We have worked with all the local funding agencies, from DC DHCD, to Virginia Housing, to Maryland CDA, among others. We have even successfully completed complicated hybrid CDA/HUD funding applications, in which expertise in understanding the HUD MAP Program is essential. 
One of the services that we offer is providing the Developer a comprehensive scope and budget estimate, broken out in easy to understand divisions, based upon a walkthrough of a prospective existing property. We will help define the scope, explore the best construction means and methods to achieve success (tenant-in-place, etc.), and discuss in realistic terms what the project may cost to construct.
