We are passionate about what we do. We believe that the design of the built environment gives us the best opportunity to improve cities and places we live in. Large or small, we always look for opportunities each project may have to make the world a better place.
We believe in a collaborative environment built on teamwork, mutual respect, and trust - both internally and with our clients, contractors, and other stakeholders. We strongly feel that having an open forum where a team can freely discuss issues, challenges, and solutions will invariably lead to a better solution for all involved.
At AE3, work and fun are not mutually exclusive. Although there can be long hours, we strive to ensure that everyone has a healthy work/life balance. To that end, our firm has a generous PTO policy, monthly happy hours, as well as other social events where we can all get know each other better.
We also like to give back to the community. AE3 is involved in youth mentoring, charitable giving, and speaking out on current political issues that impact our industry. We are currently active in the following organizations:
• 100 Black Men of the Bay Area
• Oakland Builders Alliance
• National Organization of Minority Architects
• Urban Land Institute
