Overview

Tricarico Architecture and Design PC was founded by Nicholas J. Tricarico on January 30, 1987 as a sole proprietorship, with an initial staff of five and a focus on retail design. Nearly three decades later, the firm has been transformed into a fully integrated Architecture, Design and Planning group with over 100 employees and an in-house Engineering department.

Through the years, we have been engaged by the most respected companies in the country to provide innovative and successful design solutions. As an award winning, cutting edge Architectural and Interior Design firm, we have created many successful prototypes for our clients.

The Tricarico staff has also perfected the seamless roll-out process, quickly taking projects from layout to permit approval. Our speed, proficiency and extraordinary level of customer service have earned us notable commendations from our clients, standing as testimony to the quality of our work we provide.

Mission Statement:

Tricarico Architecture and Design is a client-centric firm that adheres to the highest standards of excellence. Our environment fosters creativity and promotes teamwork to ensure our clients visions are seamlessly brought to life.
