Making an Impact

We make an effort to make a positive impact in our community and the world at large.

We are aware of the way our projects touch the lives of those that use them and effect the environments that they exist within. It is our ongoing intention to develop spaces that positively impact the ecological, economical and humanitarian state of the communities we engage with.

“WKMC has distinguished itself by taking charge and leading the rapidly growing & changing Corpus Christi community in a comprehensive planning evolution.”

– Captain Rocco Montesano

community service projects

“With WKMC’s help we have replaced almost every building at camp…Since, WKMC involvement in our projects we have more than tripled our yearly attendance at camp. Many of our campers and parents have stated that the quality design of our new buildings is a major factor of why they chose our camp.

It has been a true pleasure working with WKMC Architects in the development of our facilities. They have shown a true commitment to the youth of our program and our community.”

-Manuel Ramos, Scout Executive/Executive Director

Sustainable Design

At WKMC, we honor work that contributes, by its design, to the creation of a sustainable world. Our role in partnering with you is to design your built environment to enhance the health of your tenants, visitors and other users. Clients and design professionals who have adopted “cleaner and greener” principles lead the way. Energy efficient and environmentally responsible projects create sustainable development that should repair and protect local and global ecosystems for future generations.

An integrated team approach, from project inception to completion, is necessary to maximize sustainable benefits while minimizing the risk of ineffective and costly buildings. Good green design requires coordinated input from all key constituents – architects, interior designers, engineers, site planners, building owners, facilities managers, users and occupants, manufacturers, utility companies, and others.
