EP Friendly Firm Recognition

July 11, 2023

Architecture Advantage is proud to be recognized as an Emerging Professional Friendly Firm again for 2023-2024 by American Institue of Architects (AIA)! The program, awarded by the North Central States Region of the AIA, aims to recognize firms who offer great support and opportunities to colleagues new to the field.  


Firms chosen for the award excel at the following:   

  • Provide fair compensation and benefits to emerging professionals. 
  • Support architectural licensure and invest in professional development of EP’s. 
  • Actively create opportunities for emerging professionals to grow. 
  • Demonstrate commitment and innovation to train and mentor EP’s. 


For many years, we have supported high school, college, and graduate students by creating professional opportunities through office tours and informational interviews, job shadowing, and paid student internships. After graduation, we believe it is incredibly important to remain supportive of new employees, especially throughout the licensure process. Nurturing and financially supporting emerging professionals often brings fresh perspectives, new ideas, and innovative approaches to the table and helps make our firm more adaptable and open to change.
