Albert Kahn Associates, Inc. (Kahn) is an industry-leading architecture and engineering firm that has designed over 45,000+ projects world-wide. Celebrating almost 125 years of history, Kahn continues to revolutionize architecture like its founder, the Architect of Detroit, Albert Kahn. Known for award-winning designs and historic projects, Kahn takes pride in its ability to collaboratively create environments that inspire people and innovates our practice.
Our expertise starts with architecture, engineering, interior design, program management and master planning and spans through commissioning, business and management needs, strategic facilities planning, value analysis and sustainability analyses. With offices in Detroit, Michigan and Miami, Florida, Kahn has a continued legacy in the industries of corporate, healthcare, automotive, industrial, research/technology, higher education and government.
EXISTING FACILITIES EVALUATION
While some may believe the architect is the catalyst of all design, Kahn places the client’s desires first and guides the project based on budget, program requirements and the overall nature of the project. This approach, coupled with the assignment of highly qualified project teams, assures all involved that Kahn’s design solutions are unique and specific to each client’s desired objectives.
IT SYSTEMS ENGINEERING
Albert Kahn was a pioneer in the concept of combining the engineering and architectural professions into one firm, an organizational approach still practiced today. Communication, design flexibility and trust are enhanced by integrating engineering and design services from the onset of a project. Building upon a depth of talent and experience, Kahn’s engineering professionals bring significant value to each of their clients’ programs.
STRATEGIC FACILITIES PLANNING
COMMISSIONING / DECOMMISSIONING

MECHANICAL SYSTEMS REVIEW
The Kahn team of multi-disciplined professionals provides building and site condition assessments for your project. With experience in millions of square footage of assessment work, Kahn is equipped to create a study and report and document existing conditions for you and your contractors use. Using visual observation and possible use of 3-D survey tools for analysis, the Kahn team then applies their knowledge about systems, codes and structures to compile the type of report you require.
URBAN PLANNING AND DESIGN
SITE MASTER PLANNING
Planning is an important part of the total service package Kahn provides its clients. Team members consider how factors such as environmental impact, zoning constraints, land-use regulations, internal and off-site traffic, service and public access, security, utilities and an array of other issues impact any given project. We also analyze each site in relation to ultimate program growth and prepare space allocations that demonstrate growth and utilization potential while remaining respectful of the environment.
PROGRAMMING AND PLANNING
Kahn places great importance upon architecture that reflects the client’s functional needs, goals and aesthetic desires. Therefore, it should come as no surprise that our designers believe the line of strength and beauty in great architecture is one and the same. Our design staff fully immerses themselves in understanding the nature, budget and scope of each client’s projects, facilitating appropriate design decisions unique to the task at hand.
