The Preston Partnership
Bob Preston, Principal
We are first and foremost an architectural practice offering a range of services from project inception to completion. We have established tremendous community credibility with neighborhood groups and city jurisdictions. We have exceptional talent in the field of design and a proven track record of not only producing quality documents, but following through with our services during construction. We’ve built our practice around offices in Atlanta; Falls Church, Va.; and Bethesda, Md., but we’ve expanded our boundaries well across the country. Our ability to work out of town is one of our greatest strengths. We’ll jump on a plane early to research a project and we’ll meet a host of people in the process including building code officials, zoning administrators, fire marshals, planners, permit expeditors, contractors, attorneys, subcontractors and more. We meet them all to ensure we understand their programs. From questions on code to time frames for permit, by the time we get back, we know what it takes to get a project done. And you’d be surprised how easy it is to get the answers if the time is taken early to simply ask the questions.
