We're invested in our staff.

Since we opened our doors in 1985, we've worked to provide an environment that's both challenging and nurturing—one that enables staff to continually learn and apply what they've discovered.

We fully appreciate the importance of individuals making their mark on this company. Because we believe in a team approach, we value and use ideas from all staff members, from senior architect to newly hired draftsperson. We also encourage everyone to reach their highest potential and have the systems in place to make that happen. For one thing, we offer an annual education allowance to enable employees to pursue specific areas of interest: their own. Whether it’s a study of sixteenth-century architecture or training in Japanese landscaping, education enriches their lives, and therefore their work.

Dietz & Company Architects is proud to be recognized as a 2018 Emerging Professional Friendly Firm by AIA New England.
