About Us

ARC is a unique architectural consulting firm specializing in the areas of planning, architectural programming, facility evaluation, and architectural research. Founded in 1976, it is the largest and longest-established firm in New Mexico specializing in planning.

Since its inception, ARC has provided services to numerous federal, state and local governments in urban planning, land planning and the planning of office, educational, health and specialized facilities. Over time, we have refined and honed existing processes and procedures, adopted and developed new services and pioneered new technologies. Many clients have come to rely on the accuracy of ARC's data and its translation into rational policies, recommendations and decision making. More than 80% of ARC's business has been for repeat clients, which include the State of New Mexico, Sandia National Laboratories, the National Park Service, University of New Mexico, New Mexico State University, and Albuquerque Public Schools. ARC's staff members bring unexcelled experience in facility master planning, facility programming, urban and community planning, and facility evaluation.
