Dennis McGrath
I believe careful listening, sensitivity to priorities, adherence to procedure, and clear communications enable great design.

Dennis McGrath Design, LLC. is a design, architecture, project management and construction consulting firm that specializes in the creation and delivery of new architecture for a variety of project experiences. My work covers a range of building types, including civic, custom residential, workplace, performing arts, education, libraries, restaurant & retail design strategies for branded environments.

I have a reputation for connecting with clients’ needs while creating outstanding designs for projects that are both schedule and budget conscious. I have a passion for design, creative problem solving, and share common values, on a global level, with members of my extended team. I focus on the expectations of my clients, and partner with expert consultants to create architecture as innovative as the people, or institutions I engage.

Prior to launching Dennis McGrath, LLC. In 2015, I provided leadership for the highest level of Design Services overseeing client interactive planning and programming phases as well as leading design and brand integration for the Education, Mixed-Use, Retail/Commercial and Healthcare practices for complex urban mixed-use projects.
