Meeks + Partners Celebrates 40th Anniversary

03/28/2014 | Meeks + Partners

Meeks + Partners, the award-winning multifamily design firm specializing in mid- and high-rise buildings, mixed-use, urban infills, student and senior housing, is proudly celebrating 40 years in this dynamic and flourishing industry.
Established in 1974 as Kaufman + Meeks, designing luxury, single family and multifamily homes, the company thrived eventually opening offices in California, Georgia and internationally in Spain and The Caribbean. With the multifamily market on the rise, the company changed its focus exclusively to multifamily in 1993. During that time they developed several design patents for high density and garden apartments, further focusing their dedication on the market. The next 20 years brought on many changes in the multifamily industry. With more households returning to the city, the need for higher density, infill designs increased.

In 2002, the firm changed names to Meeks + Partners operating out of its Houston, TX headquarters. Working with the nation's leading builders, developers and real estate investment trusts, M+P thrives as a top multifamily design firm. After receiving awards from every major program honoring multifamily designs, including NAHB, PCBC, ULI and Multifamily Executive to name a few, our success is undeniably attributable to the diligent efforts of the partners in the firm who listen, exchange ideas and create innovative designs.

The architects at Meeks + Partners have planned and designed several thousand residential and commercial communities throughout the United States, Asia and Europe. Approaching each project with a thorough knowledge of the existing market, regional and site specific conditions, M+P is able to create contemporary, high-impact, meaningful and cost-effective designs thus achieving the client's needs. Looking back on the last 40 years, Don Meeks, CEO, is proud of the firm's success and direction, "I attribute M+P's continued success in part to staying flexible and creative within each market and to our people. By adapting to the surroundings and economic culture, we create environmentally appropriate, innovative designs."
