Epsten Group was founded in Atlanta in 1991 by Dagmar Epsten as an architecture firm offering traditional and sustainable design, engineering and consulting services. Like many companies, we started small with just a few employees in a modest office space. In the years since, we have achieved extraordinary success and established ourselves as leaders in sustainability throughout the United States and around the globe. Epsten Group has grown from five employees in 2007 to more than 50 today.
In addition to architecture, consulting and engineering, we are also proud to have expanded our initial service offerings to include commissioning, energy auditing and retro-commissioning, building envelope consulting and commissioning, energy modeling and optimization, and building and product certifications and assessments.
In 2016, the firm’s existing leadership team assumed ownership of Epsten Group. Our principals are William D’Onofrio, AIA; Pete Choquette, AIA; Darren Draper, PE; and Lauren Wallace.
We are proud to have been a part of numerous southeastern sustainable showcase buildings and other high-performance building projects throughout the nation and around the world in our nearly 30-year history.
