Inspired by our clients.
Moved by simplicity.
Guided by the Golden Rule.

Founders Ralph H. Cushing (standing) and Everett O. Terrell review designs circa 1965.

Established in 1938 on the promise of a collaborative design approach, CTA Architects Engineers was an early adopter of integrated architectural and engineering services. We believe innovation thrives on working shoulder-to-shoulder toward elegant, efficient design solutions.

Since our humble beginnings (as Cushing & Terrell, after our founders), we have evolved to provide an array of design services across industries and geographies, while upholding the pioneering spirit that inspired our first leaders. We place the highest value on the success of our clients, and let client care lead our work from start to forever.

CTA is a heads-down-but-have-fun, people-before-projects kind of firm. Our team members are encouraged to set lofty goals while keeping ego out of the office, instead prioritizing a warm, supportive, and collaborative work environment.

HOW WE DESIGN

CTA’s work does not promote a particular architectural style or engineering system; rather, we strive to give our designs purpose and meaning that are original and compliment their place. We believe in simple, subtle, and unobtrusive beauty, but with details that balance complexity and simplicity.
