Architect Jim Lloyd founded Abacus Design Studio based on the principles of quality design, accurate documents and realistic schedules and budgets.  These core principles drive everything we do, from a simple room addition to a complex industrial plant.

At Abacus Design Studio, we work directly with our clients to provide complete designs that exceed their expectations.  Throughout the design and construction processes, we focus our attention on the details that matter most to our clients.  We dedicate our time and talents to create functional works of art based on our client’s needs and desires, while working with our consultants and construction management team to make sure that all of our completed projects are on time and within budget.

Abacus Design Studio utilizes Building Information Modeling to virtually construct all of our projects, beginning with conceptual models through construction administration.  The use of Building Information Modeling provides us with the tools to give all of our clients virtual tours of their projects, both inside and out, from the earliest stages of design through the final review and even during construction.  This same technology also allows us to minimize construction conflicts through analysis of the virtual model.  Whenever possible, we work with consultants who utilize the same software so that we can be sure that all items including structural members, heating and air conditioning equipment, and all plumbing and electrical lines have been planned and accommodated.

In addition to utilizing software, Abacus Design Studio teams up with construction managers to provide quality reviews of our projects at various stages during design.  We work with these construction managers to provide accurate project schedules and budgets to our clients and then work together to meet those schedules.
