Augis Gedgaudas established AGA architects in 1996. Since that time, he has lead the firm through the development and completion of numerous commercial, industrial and residential projects. His more than fifteen years of experience on these projects has provided a depth of experience that includes all phases of a project's design, development, production and construction resulting in the unique ability to coordinate issues of program, budget and schedule to create innovative architectural solutions.
Augis' detail oriented participation in this manner has resulted in the development of close working relationships with clients. This experience has led to the development of a process that includes interacting and working closely with clients during the programming, planning and design phases of their project in order to understand each client's unique requirements and needs, to assure that they are addressed and appropriate solutions are reflected in the project's design. This client collaboration extends into the development, construction documentation, bidding and construction administration phases of each project assuring that the clients desires are reflected in the completed project within the overall constraints of the construction process.
He has organized and managed, including coordination with engineering and other specialized consultants, large teams to produce construction drawing packages on schedule that meet project budgets. This extensive project management experience has also resulted in the ability to develop and work with innovative project management strategies to minimize project costs and schedules.
Augis has the unique ability to work within the complex group of participants required to develop a project in today's construction environment and lead these diverse groups toward the common goal of a successful completed project. His design sensibilities are rooted in Modernism, but are always tempered by unique project parameters and client needs. Augis also seeks to continue the discourse of Architecture by participating in the academic environment as a faculty member at the Southern California Institute of Architecture teaching courses in theory and professional practice.
