William Duff Architects Supports Businesses with New SPRINT Program

SAN FRANCISCO, Sept. 23, 2020 /PRNewswire/ — William Duff Architects (WDA) recently launched SPRINT, a quick-turnaround program that provides commercial clients with design-based, decision-making tools — such as return to operations, due diligence and feasibility studies, as well as design concepts and visualizations — to provide a strong, future-focused foundation for propelling businesses beyond current conditions.

Founded and based in San Francisco, WDA is known for its award-winning residential commissions. The firm’s portfolio also includes retail, restaurant, workplace, and adaptive reuse for both global brands and local businesses. WDA founder and managing partner, William S. Duff, Jr., AIA, states, “We created SPRINT to give our clients a quick and easy way to utilize our creativity and expertise to solve specific problems. Our clients want to be best positioned for the future, and they are tapping us to help them create a vision for moving forward.”

Adds WDA retail practice manger, Jonathan Tsurui, “By offering affordable, quick-turnaround design-based solutions through SPRINT, we also hope to help clients better assess, and manage, risks related to starting new projects in the current climate.”

David K. Plotkin leads WDA’s commercial practice area, and he works with clients that include private companies, public agencies and non-profits on projects ranging from lobby refreshes to core-and-shell and adaptive reuse.

He notes, “We understand the challenges that developers, property managers, city officials and other decision makers are dealing with during this time. By making design-based solutions more approachable through SPRINT, we are able to help entrepreneurs and small business owners navigate this period successfully.”
