Emig & Associates Architects
Emig and Associates, Architects, was organized in 1987 as a sole proprietorship in Emporia by Dave Emig, following his twelve years of professional practice in the Wichita area. The firm was formed to provide traditional architectural services, and has worked for private and public building owners, non-profit and commercial organizations, and individuals in a wide range of building projects.
Building types include K-12 schools, varied collegiate facilities, libraries, churches, single family residences and apartments, medical offices and treatment facilities, recreation facilities, aquatic centers, and streetscape projects. The firm provides value in buildings by designing within the Owner’s budget with quality materials and systems, and with design that is responsive to occupant’s needs and environmental forces.
With offices in the historic Emporia Gazette Building, the firm employs two registered architects, an intern architect, a computer drafter and clerical help. Supplemental manpower is implemented on larger projects by association with other architectural firms that share our emphasis on quality and completeness of documents.
Multiple projects have been completed for many building owners, a mark of satisfaction by demanding clients. Repeat clients include Emporia State University, Kansas Bureau of Investigation, Kansas Department of Labor, Coffey County Library, Emporia Public Schools, Flint Hills Technical College, Kansas Department of Transportation, Kansas Highway Patrol, Sts. Peter and Paul Catholic Church in Seneca, St. Rose Catholic Church in Council Grove, The City of Emporia, and the Lyon County Commission.
Emig and Associates utilizes computerized drafting systems, with four complete workstations, a large format ink-jet plotter, and a laser jet printer for in-house document printing. In addition, we transmit drawings, presentation materials, and bidding documents between consultants, clients, and ourselves via the Internet. Emig and Associates is dedicated to compliance with recognized computerized design and drafting standards so that electronic files created for projects are accessible now and in the future.
Emig and Associates engages the services of consultants for the design of specialized components within a project, including the structural systems, electrical power and lighting, communications and computer wiring, heating, air-conditioning and plumbing, civil engineering, food service, and aquatic design. These consultants bring to the design team ample manpower and expertise for a complete project design. Each of these consultants is a specialist in their field, and brings to the project abilities and experience in specialized building systems.
