A Powerhouse Team of Seasoned Architects and Engineers
Spurgin & Associates Architects provides a full range of professional planning and design services. Of course, we offer the full complement of building design services including schematic design, design development & construction documents, bidding and negotiation assistance, and contract administration. But we can also assist our clients with site planning, site feasibility studies, space programming and planning, as well as assistance with interior and exterior material and color selections. If necessary, we can provide budget assistance via our professional estimating consultant.
Spurgin & Associates Architects has worked on projects with construction values ranging from $100K to $7M. Our projects include private sector office and medical buildings; school athletics facilities from concessions and team room buildings to bleachers and grandstands and from tennis courts to indoor football fields; municipal facilities including office, courts and parks buildings, fleet maintenance facilities, and fire stations; community college fire academy training facilities; industrial facilities from shops and warehouses to office finish-out in airplane hangars; and county government facilities from office suites to event centers, from amphitheaters to indigent care centers, and modifications in prisons to courthouses. Our firm handles it all: remodels, tenant finish-out, and new ground-up buildings.
Spurgin & Associates Architects operates as a Sole Proprietorship and we are purposefully a small firm working closely with our chosen civil, structural, and MEP consulting engineers who are also small, local firms. We strongly believe that our limited staffing does not limit our capabilities but ensures unlimited client contact and involvement with the firms' respective principals and owners, the guys whose names are on the door, from schematic design to move-in and beyond, virtually assuring the desired results in a timely and successfully completed project. Our growing list of repeat clients attests to our ability to create enduring architecture as well as lifelong professional relationships.
Spurgin & Associates Architects' sole office is located at 103 W Louisiana Street near the historical town square in McKinney, the county seat of Collin County, Texas. Downtown McKinney has become a destination for dining, shopping, and entertainment, and for several years, McKinney has been ranked one of the fastest-growing cities in the nation, among the best places to live and work in the nation. Likewise, Collin County has similarly been ranked near the top in growth, both locally and nationally. Our firm endeavors to play a vital role in shaping the development, environment, growth, and success of the city and region in which we work and live.
Spurgin & Associates Architects in McKinney, Texas was established 28 years ago in September of 1990 by Mr. Kent Spurgin, Owner, Principal, and Sole Proprietor of the firm, and McKinney native. Mr. Spurgin determined his destiny was to be an architect when he was in middle school, took drafting classes in high school, and headed for UTA upon HS graduation to embark on his architectural degrees. During undergrad summers, he came back home and worked for a local architect, worked for another local architect near the UTA campus during grad school, and came back home to McKinney to work for the local architect until his retirement shortly after Mr. Spurgin began his own practice in the same office. Much of the work of this firm is in the public sector which was a mainstay of both firms where Mr. Spurgin interned and learned the business.
