Applied Design Research Associates – 30th Anniversary in Business

Posted by  //  March 20, 2019  //  Local Business

Applied Design Research Associates (ADRA) – architecture, interiors and project management services, has been in business locally since 1988.  As the principal NY registered Architect, I maintain an ardent commitment to developing creative, value conscious design solutions where client/user input remains priority one throughout the design process.  ADRA’s design team shares the collective belief that a truly successful design will enhance the quality of life for those who reside, study, work, or play within the facility.

ADR Associates brings the client extensive experience in the planning and design of new projects as well as Metal Staircase Design Consultation for commercial buildings.  We are adept at developing ongoing rapport with client/user groups through our willingness to listen and flexibility in accommodating changing program requirements including a client’s need for effective problem solving on projects that have critical budgetary constraints or stringent time parameters.  

In June of 2007, ADRA further expanded its professional service capability by establishing The CedarBrook Group to offer an additional level of project management expertise for our residential and commercial clients.  For the past two decades, the building industry has experienced significant growth in design-build firms that can effectively provide their clients with one-stop shopping for new homes and businesses. By having the design professional and builder collaborate in the design process, the overall project can be accelerated when the schedule is time sensitive.  Client budgets can also be more closely monitored since the contractor can provide earlier input to the design process and suggest cost saving alternatives like hiring equipment from for Construction Projects.

The CedarBrook Group is a collaboration of ADR Associates and Bell Construction Company, LLC, a respected, fully insured general contracting firm operating from Cortland, New York since 1991.  Bell Construction Company offers extensive building expertise in the areas of residential construction, light commercial, residential care and hospitality projects along with adaptive reuse of older buildings. The team is all well equipped with knowledge of using different kinds of equipment, including a telescopic. If you need to take courses, you can ask for a telehandler training cost near me. They ensure the quality of their work for every project they accept, including the small details in every job they make. They have the best team of resin flooring installers, which builds their reputation for a job well done. And if you’re considering gaining accreditation, you may ask why gain an Accreditation? Taking the right steps to become accredited, whether it be SafeContractor or CHAS, can prove to clients, other businesses, and even potential employees that your business has the right experience, level of expertise, and complies with the right standards.

Applied Design Research Associates begins its 30th anniversary year in 2019, with special discount service rates for both residential and commercial projects.  Brian Buttner, Principal Architect and certified Codes Specialist, has been a regular contributor to the Cortland Area Tribune over the past fourteen years with his Pencil Points articles on common code compliance and design issues.   For more information on the design-build process or to set up an appointment, feel free to contact Brian Buttner (ADRA) at (607) 844-4601 or by email at
