Webster's Dictionary defines architecture as "the design of buildings." JBA seeks to redefine that meaning. We work in partnership with each client to achieve creative, clear, simple, concise, effective designs that match their desire; and to inspire.
We love what we do and the people we do it for. We love coming to work everyday because at the end of the day we can feel good knowing we provided a service that exceeds our clients expectations. You will always have one of us as your sole point of contact/responsibility.
In 2008, JBA began with the concept of being a net zero overhead company. The offices (once located in Atlantic City, Neptune and Sea Girt. NJ) were all single offices within an Executive Suite arrangement to reduce the footprint in each location. To further the concept, JBA staff chose to be structured with 1099 employees unfettered by the 9 to 5 concept. This allowed everyone to enjoy family time during the day while working at night. As this concept became a successful model, JBA realized that a zero carbon footprint was achievable. So JBA closed the AC office, converted Neptune into a virtual office and kept the Sea Girt office. But with the clients requiring onsite meetings to keep from traveling from home, office or school district, JBA closed the Neptune office and converted Sea Girt into a virtual office. This move thus reduced staff and client travel time and carbon emissions. With a client base becoming younger and younger, JBA has made the move to cloud based project management to reduce paper waste and become more time efficient and increase its overall sustainability.
