ABOUT OUR FIRM

Garcia Architects is the new name for an established firm with decades of experience working on hundreds of projects across Central Texas. Formerly Neal Architectural Group, Garcia Architects continues the tradition of excellence in architectural services, taking the time to fully understand each client’s unique goals & vision. The result is your construction or remodel project meets the scope, budget, & timeframe.

 

We love working with dreamers! As your partner, we engage with you from beginning to end to help your dream come true. We understand there is a time for vision-casting, but we also understand the nitty-gritty details of construction so you don’t have to. Once you have a vision, we’ll help with the planning, design, & construction oversight to accomplish your goals.

 

Since our founding in 1988, contractors have loved working with us because our professionalism & attention to detail makes their job easier. The results are beautiful architectural designs that meet the vision, needs, & budget of our clients.

 

Principal architect Kelly Garcia brings 20 years of experience to the firm. She joined Larry Neal in 2017, and as the new owner, Kelly continues to build on the tradition of excellence by leading her architectural team in meeting your needs for a Central Texas architect.

 

Service Area: We can work on projects anywhere in Texas, but most projects are within 100 miles of our office in Temple. Our service area includes Temple, Belton, Bryan, Cameron, College Station, Gatesville, Georgetown, Groesbeck, Harker Heights, Hillsboro, Lampasas, Killeen, Pflugerville, Round Rock, Salado, & Waco.

 

Project Type: From modern to classic, artistic to functional, we can design & manage almost any type of commercial building project. Recent projects include commercial, retail, auto dealerships, health care clinics, educational buildings, churches, non-profits, community spaces, & high-end residential.

 

Delivery Type: There are multiple design delivery types in the architectural-construction industry. We specialize in the Design-Bid-Build process. The three phases entail production of a set of detailed documents, bidding by one or multiple contractors, then building construction. We also complete many design-build and construction-manager-at-risk projects due to our close relationships with local contractors. Working hand-in-hand with contractors, we’re able to make adjustments throughout the design process based on contractor and sub-contractor feedback. We’re a flexible firm willing to work through the design process to best serve the owners.
