Commercial Building Design

Northstar provides commercial building design services in the Mid-Atlantic area. Our highly trained design professionals can take your building ideas and turn them into a realistic and actionable design. We take into consideration every aspect of the design process to develop a complete and workable product. Once designed, our construction team can take the plans and turn them into a physical project.

Design Objectives

Our design process requires that we meet certain criteria in order to ensure that your building meets you and your businesses needs.


Your building needs to be accessible to clients, customers, and employees. This involves considering heights, widths, and clearances for doorways, entryways, and other elements of the building.

Aesthetically Pleasing

Your building represents your company. A sharp looking structure that is easy on the eyes or provokes interest can go a long way towards creating an image for your company. Depending on the type of business, your building should say something about your company’s philosophy.


If your business requires specific functionality, this should be taken into consideration when designing the building. For instance, if you’re a restaurant that needs to serve customers in a certain manner, a counter and kitchen area needs to be constructed in order to accommodate this.


Part of being a profitable business is ensuring that your employees remain productive. Considerations like ventilation, lighting, workspaces, and technology will help to create an environment that is both physically and psychologically comfortable. ┬áThis will also positively impact your customers’ or clients’ experience as well.


Another consideration that impacts your bottom line is that of cost-effective operation. Selecting building elements that will meet your needs while not being overly experience will help keep your costs down.


Thinking about energy-efficiency and the durability of materials helps to design a building that will be more resilient and require less future construction. There are a number of “green” options available that are quickly becoming more affordable and easy to implement.
