Mission

shiffler office inside 2

Shiffler Associates has a strong tradition of doing the highest caliber of work. Tight time schedules and restrictive budgets are never accepted as excuses for not producing award winning design. Seventy percent of our practice is repeat business. The consistency of return customers is testimony to our ability to interpret client desires, control costs, and meet deadlines. Our list of projects is our best list of references. Clients who do repetitive building know who approaches architecture in a professional manner and who can get the job done. Our track record demonstrates our ability to control all elements of the construction process.

With our proven experience in Iowa and our professional capabilities, we feel we can best provide the solution for our clients' building and planning concerns. To our capabilities we add our insistence on responsive communication, adherence to schedules and budget concerns, and a commitment to design excellence.
