About Us

The Adrian Design Group is an energetic, client oriented firm that is fully equipped to help our clients realize and often exceed their project expectations. We strive to stay ahead of our client’s industry and construction trends to bring added value to our working relationships.

We value our partnership with the Adrian community undertaking many of the recent downtown historic restoration projects, collaborating with the staff and students at LISD to design and build a sustainable energy efficient demonstration house and work with exceptional interns from area colleges.

Our office is located in one of our historic renovation projects, Adrian Engine House #1, originally designed in 1898 and designated as a Michigan Historic Site located within the Downtown Adrian Commercial Historic District.
