KOP Architects PC was formed in 1992
For over twenty-five years, KOPA has provided professional services to public and private clients throughout
Virginia. We are known as a high quality, full service architecture firm. Our emphasis is on budget and
schedule control from design through completion of each and every project.
All three principals of KOPA have previously served as Chief of Architecture and Construction for state
agencies in Virginia. As such, they bring a unique perspective to each project and client. We have a personal
understanding of our client's needs and use that knowledge to provide services that exceed their expectations.
We maintain an extensive CAD and specification database to draw upon for each project. This allows us to
complete projects quickly to meet our client's schedules. The use of these tried and true assemblies
increases accuracy, decreases change orders, and adds value for our clients.
Our clients receive the highest quality of service because their projects are not handed off to junior
level personnel to complete. Hal Downing, Don Guthrie and Ed Gillikin personally manage each project to
ensure quality, completeness, and client satisfaction.
