It has been 35 years since we first opened our doors on a crisp October day.  All we had was a calculator, a telephone (land line only, there were no such things as cell phones), two drafting boards, a roll of Mylar, pencils, an erasing shield, drafting tools and a vision of what we would do if we ever got a project.  We had not a single promise of an assignment.

Since then, we have been privileged and fortunate to be given the opportunity to design thousands of projects and millions of square feet of space. We have grown from two people to 135 people.  We still have the lofty notion of designing every project to absolute perfection.  We still have the desire to strive for excellence.  We still get goosebumps when we see that the designs we envisioned are built and working, and helping our clients conduct their business.  Engineering remains a thrill to this day.

None of this would be possible without the support of people like you who have helped us along the way.  We want to thank you for your trust and loyal support, and in many cases, encouragement, through the years.  We truly could not have done it without you.  Please accept this token of our gratitude from all of us at Robert Derector Associates.  We promise to try to do even better for the next 35.  The fun is just beginning!
