Architecture, Design and Planning - Solutions that bring your vision to life and function well into the future.


An owner’s vision of a “perfect” building – one that’s appealing, functional and modern, yet sustainable – begins with an idea. Ultimately, the desire is a structure that supports growth, enhances the community, pleases the eye, welcomes its occupants, and makes her proud to call it headquarters or home.

Mark English & Associates brings this vision to life.

We know cities. Mark English & Associates is an award-winning team that transforms big ideas into reality. We have been navigating clients through the process for more than 40 years. The end results are urban jewels that are testimony to our passion to contribute to the new urban fabric.

We are enthusiastic to offer solutions that meet your current needs and that function well into the future.
