Congratulations to Our Long-Time Customer, Kava Massih Architects

We are proud to be associated with industry leaders, and our client Kava Massih Architects (KMA) is definitely a leader. KMA has received numerous awards, including The Pulse of the City News’ “Star Award;” Building Online’s “2014 Builder’s Choice Award for Affordable or Workforce Housing” for The Ambassador housing structure in Emeryville, California; and the AIA California Council’s title of “2014 Emerging Talent Firm.” And recently, KMA celebrated its 20-year anniversary!

“We are thrilled that KMA has reached this significant milestone,” said John Hlady, senior account manager, Ideate, Inc. “Ideate has been working with KMA since the early days, and we have seen how creativity, collaborative spirit, and commitment to sustainable processes have contributed to the firm's prominence in the community.”

In addition to receiving numerous awards, KMA has been featured in several articles, including “Bay Area Crane Watch: Bay Meadows and 4 other big projects changing the region's skyline” and “Kava Massih: An architect learning to let go, and when not to," San Francisco Business Times, 01-29-16 and 03-14-14 respectively. Additionally, several of KMA’s projects have been featured in photo tours in Healthcare Design Magazine.

J. Conner, KMA principal, said, “We turn to Ideate Inc. for advice with our Autodesk purchases. John Hlady knows the software inside and out, and he is deeply connected to the industry. He also stays current on our company vision, goals, and projects. With his depth of knowledge, he is able to help us make sound business decisions.”

Those sound decisions have earned the firm a reputation in the Bay Area as a driving force behind a wide range of innovative architectural designs with a solid capability of delivering on time and on budget.

Congratulations KMA! Here’s to many more decades of working together.
