Casey + DeChant Architects is a northwest regional architectural and land planning design firm located in Tacoma, WA that emphasizes quality and client satisfaction in the pursuit of great design solutions.

Since 1987, we have provided full service design solutions that create value for our clients through in-depth planning, our integrated design and engineering, our knowledge of the construction industry and our practiced ability to navigate complicated city approvals and permitting processes in a reasonable time frame.

At CDA, we are about the project. We consider our clients’ projects as more than the sum of the pieces required to successfully complete their construction projects in today’s highly competitive environment; we consider our clients’ projects as new and individually unique built environments that sustains their programs in a stimulating and enriching manner. Our business service’s philosophy is quite simple:

  • First, learn and understand our client’s core values and expectations.
  • Second, provide simple yet innovative and authentic designs that meet our client’s goals.
  • Third, provide timely, clear and unbiased construction administration at a level tailored to our client’s needs.

We have a tradition of innovative design that has brought the firm many repeat clients as well as recognition within the construction industry. With more than 20 years of Professional experience each, Principals Paul Casey and Larry DeChant, along with Associate Jerry Litwin, bring varied experience to the practice. We have assembled a highly dedicated and qualified core staff of individuals and consultants who work as a team to bring each project to a successful completion. Principals and Associates are hands on participants in the creation of each project and each closely oversee all their projects.

As a leader, Paul Casey realizes that the proper office studio environment is critical to the creation of thoughtful and innovative designs for our clients. The Casey + DeChant staff enjoy an informal, but when required, fast paced and sometimes intense studio collaborative experiences between clients, our consultants and firm principals and staff. This culture yields an enjoyable work environment that instills an eagerness to work with efficient and cost effective results.

We are of course about meeting our deadlines, but we are also about the collaborative experience of working with our clients, our consultants, and the governing agencies in an effective manner that supports concise, clear and executable timelines and deadlines. This process pays dividends by yielding well-coordinated, concise and thorough construction documentation for our clients.

It is this appreciation and commitment to the design process and refined business acumen that allow clients to feel comfortable when deciding to work with our firm.
