About US


We’re not just Designers, we’re doers.

We dream, plan, sketch, render, draft, schedule, manage, and help.

We help our clients materialize their thoughts and plans for their future.

We help turn dreams into reality one small goal at a time.

From the first conversation with a business owner to the final grand opening of their new facility, we are with our clients every step of the way on their path to getting things done.

We set priorities, focus efforts, and work towards a common goal to help you make short and long-term decisions based on your business goals and the resources you have available.

02. Creative

We come up with innovative ideas to solve everyday problems. Blending building aesthetics, state regulations, and business operations into one cohesive building design.

03. Enthusiastic

We have a contagious passion for what we do that inspires everyone that works with us.  This positive energy fuels us to complete each project as if it’s a new and fun adventure, because it is!

An Educator @ Save on Building.

Having worked with over 200 independent commercial building owners since the inception of Calbert Design Group, I could see a clear knowledge gap in our clients.  Our clients are business owners, not real estate developers.  And as such, they understand business and the financial benefits of business ownership.  But when it comes to commercial property selection and the design and building of a commercial building, they could use a little help.

I’ve created “Save on Building, LLC” to fill this gap.  SaveonBuilding.com is a learning-based platform for business owners and real estate investors to learn how to save money, time, and stress during the commercial real estate development process.  The purpose of this site is to offer honest and unbiased CRE knowledge and guidance from someone who doesn’t profit from your choices.  Check out our free articles, videos, and courses on how you can Save on Building too!

An Author @ ChildcareDesign.com.

Our blog dedicated to serving childcare owners is ChildcareDesign.com.  I have published over 100 articles, as well as 5 beautifully illustrated “Childcare Design” magazines on the Childcare Design site.

My most recent accomplishment is a newly published book, “Building Your Daycare“, which was ranked #1 in Commercial Real Estate on the first day of publication, December 1, 2022!  Check it out here on Amazon.

Project Locations

Our office is located in Atlanta, GA but that doesn’t keep us from working with clients across the entire nation.

As contemporary architects, we have the technology to support communicating with our clients no matter where they are.

We usually kick off a project design with nothing more than a site survey, a few Google aerial views, and a Video Conference.

There are two instances where it’s important for us to see the property before we begin building design.

1) If the property has difficult topography and we are designing a building that will need to complicated hillsides.

In this instance, we’ll want to work closely with your local Civil Engineer to make sure that the sloping grades are properly addressed in the building design.

2) If the building is an existing building that will be remodeled.

In this instance, we need to perform a site visit before getting started in order to document the existing building, structure, and utility systems.
