CDO (Central Design Office) is the architecture division of UIC (Urban Improvement Company), a design-focused integrated practice with expertise in architecture, construction, and real estate development. At CDO, we continually strive to create exceptional architecture with a focus on the implementation and long term life of the buildings we create. We are neither pie in the sky idealists, nor stuck in the mud pragmatists - but instead seek to find beautiful solutions to challenging projects that will create joy for our clients for many years to come. Being a part of UIC, where designers sit next to builders and real estate professionals, we are well suited to help our clients articulate and understand the values that are important in their projects and from this arrive at the most intelligent solutions, whether it is by acting as a design-builder or in a more conventional architecture role.
