About KJD Architecture:
Ken Diener founded KJD Architecture PC in 1993 based on ongoing planning relationships with national retailers and local developers. We believe maintaining ongoing relationships with clients requires an understanding of the inter-relationship of appropriate design solutions and people, politics and costs, as well as an ultra-high commitment to delivering products within set timelines.
Consistent in the firm's projects are the site design, team coordination and zoning approvals for development masterplans. The planning approval process has developed into a specialized art form that demands a unified team approach. Teams that KJD Architecture PC leads include the client, the client’s brokers, attorneys and construction managers, additional architects, consulting engineers, and environmental clean-up and wetland mitigation consultants. The jurisdictional side of the process typically involves city and county planning, public works members, state departments of transportation and federal and state officials involved in environmental issues. Frequently citizen groups become a third party.
Over the past six years the architectural component of KJD Architecture PC's work emphasis has expanded. Following a logical progression of innovative site solutions, our architectural approach seeks to find connections to site, client and users. Our clients have been commissioning projects with the desire for increasing quality and innovativeness. KJD Architecture PC enjoys responding to these clients direction.
past experience includes teaching Architectural
PC has been responsible for over 350 sites and projects since 1993.
Key to all of the above relationships is Mr. Diener’s
understanding of the client’s needs and the delivery of solutions
for them efficiently, clearly and comprehensively. Coupled with this
understanding is the philosophy that all projects, no matter the scale
or the client, are people based and people-driven.
