About

Or so say our clients:

Working with UDA is great!  I’ve completed several projects with them and have always enjoyed the experience.  I’ve found Kevin, Cori and the rest of the UDA folks to be incredibly knowledgeable, energetic, creative, collaborative, responsive and fun.  What I’ve enjoyed most is their eagerness to engage with the Project Team (owner, engineers, contractors) to find solutions for project challenges.  It’s obvious that they like what they do.  I’m looking forward to my next project with UDA.

[Kevin Uniacke and his team are] not a design factory pumping out the same square cinderblock hunter green and burgundy design, but a true design professional creating dreams at and under budget.

UDA Architects have played a vital role in several of our developments. Their experience, foresight, and expertise have helped bring our company’s projects from concept to fully functioning buildings. With their breadth of knowledge, we would highly recommend any individual or company in need of an architecture firm to consider working with UDA.

Jake Murphy, Property Manager for John D. Murphy Real Estate Company

For over 15 years, I’ve developed a relationship with Kevin Uniacke and the UDA Team as if they became an extension of my own internal department.  The value that UDA brings for us is that they have become a partner, and not just another contracted service.  Professional, attentive, creative, and just all-around good people are how I’d describe them.   No matter what the project scope or design is, big or small, I tell people that I’ve got the right team that can help us with that.

How We Work

Every project starts by understanding a client’s goals. This includes identifying client expectations, priorities, budgets, and schedule. UDA understands that past solutions for similar project types can inform current work but that listening, asking questions and vetting key issues with the owner prior to beginning the design process are the primary vehicles for project success. All projects share similar attributes related to budget, schedule, design, brand enhancement, employee satisfaction, user experience, future growth, etc., but it is identifying the prioritization and weight of these issues on each project that makes them unique. UDA’s specialty is drilling down through the various issues, options, and priorities of each project to create a solution that is the best fit for each client.

Principal / Owner

Kevin Uniacke is Principal-in-Charge, CEO, and senior project manager at UDA.

His 30+ years of experience in planning, design, bidding, and construction administration have informed the foundation of UDA’s philosophies, values, and process. He believes the best way to keep projects on schedule, on budget, and on brand is to develop a strategic plan in coordination with the owner before any design work begins.

This philosophy is why every UDA project includes pre-design diligence that explores and identifies client goals, existing site conditions, regulatory hurdles, and potential development schedule and budget constraints.

For nearly 20 years of his 30+-year career, Kevin has maintained a unique specialty in aviation facilities planning and design.  He has worked with various corporate flight departments, OEMs, FBOs, and commercial carriers in addition to airport authorities. He’s familiar with the operational requirements for a wide variety of aircraft types and the facilities required to support those aircraft and their crews.

When he’s not solving architectural challenges for his clients, Kevin loves to travel, run, and spend time with family.
