Judge Architecture provides architectural services using AutoCAD software to produce 2D Construction Documents and a combination of Sketch Up & Revit for 3D and BIM (Building Information Modeling) to provide a more accurate model of the proposed design allowing clients a clearer picture of the design. Additionally the BIM allows for a better understanding of the complete design so that all trades & services can utilize the building model. BIM encourages early coordination of design information, enabling earlier decision-making, better documentation and easier evaluation of alternative materials, sustainable design and energy analysis as needed on a project-to-project basis

Judge Architecture has several distinct advantages over the competition. Since our product is a service, our company’s merit is based on the education and technical knowledge of the Architect, Rachael Judge. Earning a Master’s Degree in Architecture from Columbia University and a Bachelor’s of Science with a Major in Architecture from Washington University, Rachael has 7 years of top academic design training. Both schools are ranked among the top Architecture schools in the nation. Columbia University’s graduate program has been consistently ranked in the top three Graduate programs in Architecture. The Master of Architecture Program distinguishes itself from similar programs elsewhere by stressing the importance of developing an understanding of, and an ability to apply, architectural concepts in relation to broader historic and contemporary issues. The program helps the Architect to develop theoretical basis for decision making in design, while maintaining intense exposure to a broad spectrum of philosophical and cultural attitudes. The curriculum is broadly divided into the study of history and theory, technology, methods, visual studies, and design. In general, the program seeks to impart basic principles and knowledge, to develop visual and analytical skills, and to relate creativity to given cultural situations.

The combination of this theoretical design focused education and 18 years of hands-on experience in working with small architectural firm has produced an invaluable combination of the practical application of architecture with abstract design concepts. This background provides the key tools necessary to provide unique design solutions for every client.
