Tim A. Risley and Associates is an Arkansas based firm that specializes in full service architecture and planning. We pride ourselves on repeat clients and long term relationships. Our medium sized firm has the ability to handle large projects without sacrificing quality and personal service to our clients.
With a diverse staff of ten, we are capable of providing design, production and construction administration for many different types of projects. We are well versed in Revit and are capable of providing a wide range of services from 3D renderings for community presentations to complete construction documents for bidding and construction administration.
Tim A. Risley and Associates was established as a one-man “shop” in Fort Smith in April, 1978. The firm concentrated on general practice and by 1985 had grown to a staff of 15 with four registered architects. The client list included St. Edwards Hospital, Fort Smith Schools, Baldor Electric Company, City of Fort Smith, GNB Battery, OK Foods, Inc. and others.
We have, by choice, chosen not to specialize in any particular market, pursing instead diverse, long term clients. Tim A. Risley & Associates has worked for the Fort Smith School District since 1980, Arkansas State Parks since 1990, Baldor Electric Company since 1995, J.R. Young Development since the late 80’s, Curtis Properties since 1988 and OK Industries since 1991.
Approximately seventy percent of our practice involves repeat clients. We feel the “diverse” approach has led to a stronger, more nimble and certainly more creative firm that values the process of design for solving unique Owner needs, as opposed to repeating the previous effort.
Over the years, the firm has developed a respected reputation for a high level of client service; strong, quality design; accurate documents and specifications; and a tenacious “firm-yet-fair” approach to Owner/Contractor relationships.
