A Full Service Architectural Firm
FMCA offers full architectural services for small to large projects. Many of the services to our clients range from Pre-Design to Project Close-out. Our clients chose the services they need.
We build relationships and trust. Treating each client as if they are our only client.
We would love to sit down with you, get to know you, and discuss any of your architectural needs.
FMCA also works with many local contractors and can assist you in design/build teamed with one of our contractors or one of yours. Many of our projects are for industrial/metal buildings, restaurants, corporate/office, and retail spaces. As you take a tour of our projects, you’ll see that we’ll take on almost anything.

Drone Videos and Pictures
3D Rendering and Models
National and Local Chains and Independent Restaurant Build Outs
From fast food to fast casual, take-out to dining-in, FMCA has helped many chefs and franchisees open their dream restaurants. Even if it's a cozy, 450 square-foot space or a larger, 10,000+ square-foot restaurant, we design spaces that showcase your branding.
Have a prototype design that is outdated? We can help you freshen up or redo your prototype so it will look great for years.
Industrial facilities have changed in the past 20 years and will continue to do so. Companies are looking for taller storage capacity, better flexibility, and locations to optimize their trucking routes.
From a DC to the local warehouse, and processing plants to manufacturing, we take the time to get to know you and your operational needs so we can design the proper facility for you while keeping future goals/expansions in mind.
Whether you need a storage facility, maintenance garage, or warehouse, a metal building could be the solution. FMCA has done a large number of projects with this building type, including offices, shopping centers, and gymnasiums.
Metal buildings can give you the maximum floor flexibility that most end users want by providing column-free space or fewer columns than in conventional construction.
Choose Only What You Need; Add as Your Business Expands
Everyone needs an office? How about a place to have a meeting? The times of hard-wall private offices along the perimeter, no natural light, and small claustrophobic cubicles are gone – or should be!
Many of today’s office spaces are open, collaborative, flexible, and inviting. At times, people share spaces, sit on a couch, or have a team meeting in an area with stand-up tables. We will sit down with you to help you configure your new space to your company’s needs. There will always be a need for hard walled offices and conference rooms. Not every new trend is for everyone, we can help you figure out your best configuration.
It’s been proven that with more natural light, open collaborative spaces, flexibility, and/or stand-up stations have increased productivity.
Let us help you reach that next level!
Getting tired of that old strip mall or shopping center? Need to expand? FMCA can help!
Our team has assisted developers in expanding shopping centers and designing new outparcel facilities to grow their portfolios and meet tenants’ needs. We work hand-in-hand with our clients to maximize the potential of each site.
Developers and Chain Stores love us!
FMCA is able to help with landlord improvement drawings for existing vacant spaces to prep sites for potential tenants or complete white/vanilla box drawings for landlord lease obligations. Many chain stores rely on FMCA to complete spaces to their prototype designs or help them develop new ones.
From small, 600 square-foot stores to larger, 10,000+-square-foot stores, FMCA will work with our clients until their vision becomes reality.
WHAT'S YOUR DREAM FMCA
FMCA never likes to say "no" to a project. We are always up to new challenges and to learn about new project types.
Life is forever changing, FMCA believes that you need a little in business to keep up with today's trends.
To embrace today’s challenges is to embark on tomorrow’s opportunities.
