Carol Franklin Associates Inc., founded in 1973, is a full service interior planning and design firm that specializes in designing interiors for corporations including many Fortune 500 corporate headquarters, banks, multi-national hotels and pharmaceutical companies including laboratories.
CFA assists clients from inception to completion – from building search to space planning, interior design, design development, construction documents, purchase of furniture, fixtures and equipment through construction monitoring and installation. We pay particular attention to understanding client needs by creating a written program as a guide. This approach minimizes future design changes which can be costly and disruptive. The success of the firm has been driven by Carol Franklin’s personal hands-on approach during every phase of the project while leading a talented senior-level design team.
CFA has the ability to lead a total facility remodeling or selected area renovation which conforms to the Green Approach. Carol Franklin has completed the challenging, highly technical LEED professional course (Leaders in Energy and Environmental Design) sponsored by the United States Green Building Council. She possesses a full comprehension of the green building rating system, practices and principles and understands how a LEED certified building provides lower energy costs and a healthy environment for its occupants. CFA designers have gained first- hand knowledge of the changes that have taken place in current facility design, construction codes, Americans With Disabilities Act and sustainable materials that protect our environment. See our section “Green Approach” for examples.
