In 1984, Jeff Eckert and Rick Wordell came together to form Eckert Wordell, an architecture firm in Kalamazoo, Michigan. Five years later, David Jarl joined them as a principal of the firm. Since then, the firm has weathered many changes, while continuing to focus on responsible design and completing a wide range of projects varying in size and complexity. In 2009, West Tech Design (a local mechanical and electrical consulting engineering company) merged with our mechanical and electrical engineering team to create E2W Engineering, thus expanding our mechanical and electrical engineering services.

Today, our firm continues to grow, providing services for projects ranging from master planning to new facility development to interior and exterior renovations and improvements. Over the years, our experience and expertise has led to work for municipalities and healthcare, commercial, educational, and industrial facilities both in Michigan and around the country.
