About

Design Significance Architecture is an architectural firm in Reno, Nevada specializing in closing out projects for school districts with the Division of the State Architect.  We also provide architectural consultation and have worked on innumerable large and small scale commercial and residential projects.  The firm was established in 1998 by Michael Trible.  After working for more than 20 years on architectural  projects as an employee, Mr. Trible established the firm in order to have more quality control on the design and implementation of the construction documents for the buildings the firm contracts for.  He graduated with a bachelor of architecture degree from Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University in 1978, and is licensed in Washington, Nevada and Virginia.  Mr. Trible is also NCARB certified and a member of ICC, the International Code Council. With his more than 32 years of experience in all phases of architecture, from planning to construction administration, along with a part time and full time staff, including a licensed residential designer, we believe there is no project or scope we cannot handle efficiently and productively. The firm has had cumulative experience with countless numbers of building types, occupancies, and building uses.  With all of our projects, we are proud of our record of having never missed a deadline, and have managed each to an effective level of budgetary accuracy.  Our experience allows us to work seamlessly and smoothly with all of our consultants, resulting in a well managed and coordinated project.  The firm also has an excellent reputation for being extremely detail oriented, and has  developed an extensive detail library, with over 1,250 details at our disposal.  The office is equipped with Microsoft Publisher, Excel, Outlook, Word, and Works programs, Autocad 2009, and full computer fax and e-mail capability, with the latest computer technology including Internet access to literally thousands of building products.  Additionally, it has multi-faceted scanning and printing ability.  All programs are operable in both black & white and color.
