Kang Associates, Inc. is a full service architectural firm. We specialize in projects in the public sector and for non-profit organizations because we believe in bringing good design and service to those clients and users who traditionally have had the greatest need, but the fewest resources. Good design needs to be thoughtful, but not necessarily expensive. Our firm was established to practice architecture first and foremost as a service, not a business nor an art. Our reputation is built upon a balanced approach. Design, budget, and schedule all receive equal emphasis and attention. Each project is managed by a single project manager throughout all phases of work. This ensures continuity from conceptual design ideas through the final punch list.

We have established a record of successful projects and satisfied clients. Our extensive and diverse project experience includes renovations to many historical buildings, and our designs are committed to energy-efficiency and sustainabilty. We are accustomed to simultaneously working with volunteer building committees, varied user groups, multiple funding sources, and administrative staff to build consensus. The firm is certified by the Massachusetts State Office of Minority and Women Business Assistance (SOMWBA) as a Minority and Woman Owned Business Enterprise (M/WBE).
