About Us

Joseph P. Larrivee, Architects, was established in 2002. At present, the firm is staffed by Joseph P. Larrivee, NCARB; President, and John Nelson, IDP; Associate.

JPL Architects strives to maintain a unique and personal approach to each project and client while utilizing the latest in technology to communicate our vision to the owner, consultants, and builders. Recent projects have utilized 3-D models throughout the design process to communicate design alternatives to the client.

JPL Architects takes as much pride in the quality of their documentation skills as they do their creative efforts during design. Consulting frequently with local contractors, JPL Architects ensures as much accuracy as possible in estimating project cost, and attention to project details during construction is unwavering.

JPL Architects can bring design, technical and management capabilities of the highest order to your project.
